Children under the age of 18 are unable to pursue a medical negligence claim themselves, however a parent or guardian can make a claim on their behalf.
Our team at Patient Claims have dealt with many claims for babies, children and adolescents.
If you are concerned about child birth trauma or the care you and your baby received during pregnancy please see our ‘Childbirth Injuries’ or ‘Pregnancy Claims’ sections.
There may be instances where the injury is significant, that the case will not be fully resolved until the child is older and the long-term prognosis can be fully known and taken into account. For example, a child may suffer oxygen starvation to the brain during child birth and it might not be clear how severe the injury will be until the child reaches developmental stages such as walking and talking.
If you are concerned about the medical treatment your child has received please call our Patient Claims Team on 0333 987 4011 or email email@example.com to speak to one of our experts today.
