Losing a baby to stillbirth or neonatal death is a truly devastating experience for both the parents and the rest of the family, and it's completely normal to demand answers for what went wrong. In some cases, after investigating the cases thoroughly, it can become apparent that errors in medical treatment may have contributed to this heart-breaking loss and, in these cases, parents are well within their right to claim compensation.

As well as the overwhelming affect that losing a child can have on the mental well-being of both parents, if the mother sustains injuries during the course of the pregnancy or birth, it can also have long lasting physical consequences.

At Forbes, our expert team can provide legal advice in a range of stillborn or neonatal death claims, including:

  • Foetal growth restriction and failure to manage the care of a baby before birth
  • Issues arising from placental abruption
  • Negligence regarding the monitoring of the baby's heartbeat during labour
  • Failure to manage pregnancy-related itching
  • Failure to act on a mother's waters breaking and failure to induce the baby
  • Mistreated infections in either mother or child
  • Failure to resuscitate a baby at birth
  • Inquests into a baby's death
