Compensation for childbirth brain injuries

In childbirth, both the safety of the mother and the baby are at stake. Fortunately, modern medicine means that giving birth is much safer than it used to be. However, sometimes, in cases where severe mistakes are made, the baby can suffer childbirth brain injuries. In fact, when babies suffer trauma to their heads at this early stage in their development, the effects can last for the rest of their lives.

Where the long-lasting implications of a brain injury have been caused by medical negligence, victims may be able to claim compensation.

As specialist injury lawyers, we understand the injustice that you may feel if your child’s life has been vastly altered due to medical mistakes. We believe that you have every right to feel this way, which is why we will support you every step of the way to make sure you receive the legal support that you and your loved ones deserve.

Compensation for cancer treatment

medical negligence

As one of the most prevalent, life-threatening medical conditions, cancer demands a high quality of care and treatment to ensure that patients have the best chance of a recovery, or lives can be put at risk. An early diagnosis is also vital to ensure that the progression of the disease can be stopped in its tracks. In cases where the opportunity for early diagnosis or treatment is missed, patients may be able to claim compensation for cancer medical negligence cases.

In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, countless appointments, treatments and surgeries related to cancer have been cancelled or rescheduled, producing a knock-on impact on the overall effectiveness of NHS cancer treatment. While priorities may have had to change to meet the demands of controlling the virus, some have raised concerns that the pendulum has swung too far in this direction, potentially causing unnecessary harm to those affected.

Generally speaking, patients may still be well within their rights to make a compensation claim, so we can advise anyone who thinks they may have been affected by medical negligence related to cancer treatment.

Paraplegia and paralysis compensation

In some of the worst injuries at work or in other accident events, the injury can be so severe that it causes long-lasting and permanent paralysis. Such conditions can cause irrevocable changes to the affected person’s life, significantly restricting their mobility and their ability to perform everyday tasks. While the extent of the paralysis can vary from person to person, anyone affected may be able to claim paraplegia and paralysis compensation for the harm caused.

As one of the more serious conditions we handle as personal injury lawyers, we understand how daunting it can be to begin a paraplegia or paralysis compensation claim. Whether claiming for yourself or on behalf of a family member, we can handle a case like this with the sensitivity that is merited, as we do for all our clients.

We aim to make the claim process smooth and stress-free, whilst we work hard to recover the most compensation we can possibly can for the injured person.

NHS maternity racism allegations

surgeon claims

An inquiry looking at NHS maternity racism allegations has been launched following several high-profile research studies and testimonies revealing reported inherent bias in prenatal care.

It comes after a study published in January reportedly revealed the stark racial disparity in maternity care, with MBRRACE-UK finding that black women can be four times more likely to die in childbirth and pregnancy than white women. Further, women from Asian ethnic backgrounds can reportedly be subjected to twice the risk as well, and the risk of fatalities is said to be accompanied by poorer experiences when it comes to prenatal care also.

As specialists in medical negligence, it is worrying for us to hear that systemic racism could be unfairly affecting the standard of care in our health service. We believe healthcare injustices are wrong in any form and that, as this is not the first time the issue has been raised, the NHS must act quickly to review the alleged racial disparity in maternity care.

Claiming for a serious injury from a fall

roof falls

We all suffer from small trips and falls over the course of our lives. In some cases, the consequences of a serious injury from a fall can be devastating.

A fall can induce pain and/or reduced mobility in any number of body parts, and the effects do not stop at physical damage. They can often provoke long-term mental health struggles as a result of the harm a serious injury can cause to your quality of life. While such incidents may not be reversible, compensation claims can often help to mitigate the impact on a victim’s life, providing recompense for the daily difficulties they now have to face.

A serious injury from a fall can arise in all manner of situations and environments, even in those where the risk is not overt. It is important to equip everyone with information regarding the actions they can take in the aftermath of such an unfortunate event.

Lung Cancer Referrals down 50% due to COVID-19

scan compensation claims

Cancer Research UK has revealed that lung cancer referrals are said to be down 50% over the last few months due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Fewer patients may be visiting their GP with lung cancer symptoms due to the similar nature of coronavirus symptoms, and this is seen as a cause for concern.

Cancer Research UK is said to be concerned not just about the apparent lack of lung cancer referrals, but also the lack of referrals for all types of cancer. They fear that the Government’s ‘stay home, protect the NHS, save lives’ messaging may have impacted people’s decision-making to visit their GP and, as a result, hindered early diagnosis of cancers and, perhaps, the outcome of treatments.

Inadequate Basildon University Hospital maternity unit

care home negligence

Basildon University Hospital maternity has been rated ‘inadequate’ after failures involving six serious cases. The maternity unit has been ordered to make urgent improvements after further concerns were raised recently about the safety of the maternity unit and its patients.

The Basildon University Hospital maternity unit has faced a number of investigations for serious cases that have raised issues surrounding the hospital’s care of patients. The maternity unit first came under fire in 2019 after the deaths of a baby in September 2018 and Gabriela Pintilie, 36, in February 2019, reportedly put down to ‘medical ineptitude.’ Further investigation into to unit found 5 other cases that were also linked to failings of care.

Further to this, a woman whose son died shortly after he was born, after 22 weeks of pregnancy, has been critical of the care and support she received during her pregnancy. She told BBC News that ‘Nearly every day I was having doctors come in encouraging me that I needed to terminate the pregnancy, even though there was nothing wrong with him.’
