How do I make a claim involving negligent prenatal advice
You may have had poor advice and care during your pregnancy (prenatal period) and as a consequence your baby suffered an injury. Perhaps the wrong choice of assisted delivery was made or the infant was born with physical and mental disabilities you were not expecting.
You may be able to make a claim against those responsible for your prenatal care and management of your pregnancy, whether they are midwives, doctors or consultant obstetricians. It may also be possible to claim where a failure to appropriately conduct tests means birth defects such as Downs syndrome are not identified, meaning you proceed with the pregnancy when, had you known of the condition, you may have decided otherwise.
These cases are difficult and complex. The most important step is to contact an expert law firm like Access Legal which specialises in this sort of work. Your chosen law firm should have good medico-legal knowledge and have access to the right experts. Proving negligence by those charged with your prenatal care is based on expert opinion and hard evidence obtained from medical records and intensive investigation of all the aspects your case.
