Birth Injury Claim Solicitors

Stephensons’ specialist birth injury solicitors focus on helping clients whose lives have been irreversibly affected by an injury at birth. Our experience ranges from cases involving negligently handled pregnancy and deliveries leading to brain injury or sometimes sadly death, to cases concerning problems which aren't detected during pregnancy and lead to babies being born with disabilities. For free initial advice and to discuss your potential clinical negligence claim call us on 0333 344 4772.

Stephensons' clinical and medical negligence solicitors have extensive experience in handling cases for clients with cerebral palsy; in some cases our clients have very severe disabilities needing 24 hour care.

Our successful cases have recovered millions for our clients to cover care, accommodation, aids and equipment as well as compensation for the actual injury.
