Birth Injury Claims

Trauma During Instrumental Delivery

Instrumental Delivery

Sometimes it is necessary to perform an instrumental delivery (using a forceps or ventouse/kiwi cup) to assist with the delivery of the baby. Excessive force or incorrect use of the instruments can cause the baby to sustain a fracture, scarring or subgaleal haematoma (abnormal buildup of blood outside the baby’s skull).

If your baby has suffered an injury at birth and you believe it was caused by negligent medical treatment, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation on their behalf.
