Does anyone have any experience of birth injury claims?

Gosh Starfish, what a lot to take in.

When ds was first born, my instinct was that something had gone wrong at the birth. He was elcs, and it was a very traumatic experience for me and him.

I met with the consultant and surgeon after the birth to discuss what had happened, it was sold to me as a counselling session to help clear up some worries and concerns, but in seeing the letter written from the session, my gp said that it seemed to be a huge arse covering session.

As time has gone on, I too think ds's issues have a genetic cause, and it was these that caused the traumatic birth rather than the other way round, IYSWIM.

I know someone who is very well respected in the field of birth injury claims, specifically dealing with brain injured children. I don't know if she would be able, but she might know of someone you could get in touch with?

I would have thought it's good to involve a solicitor reasonably quickly, because you might have to get hold of witnesses etc before they disappear. Simpson Millar are good on this type of claim.
