If your child has suffered an antenatal injury you may be entitled to claim on his or her behalf for compensation to recompense your family for any pain or suffering caused. Such injuries tend to arise as a consequence of a medical professional failing to conduct blood tests or to offer antenatal screenings when required. Because of such errors, harm can be caused to either mother or child.

Why screening and blood tests are important

Providing antenatal screening checks is essential for some pregnant women as it can help to highlight any difficulties that could arise when the child is born. These can include very serious conditions, such as Down’s syndrome and foetal abnormalities.

Likewise, blood tests are often conducted to make sure the mother does not suffer from any medical conditions that could lead to complications at birth. For instance, a pre-existing condition could have the potential to cause severe hemorrhaging when the child is born.

It is therefore imperative that those who suffer as a consequence of medical negligence have access to all of the advice and support they need at such a difficult time. At McHale & Co, we are dedicated to helping our clients every step of the way, providing the guidance they need to help them get the outcome they are after.

Conditions caused by negligence in the antenatal period

Negligence at this important stage in the birth of a child can result in various conditions and injuries, including:

  • Ectopic and molar pregnancies
  • Pre-eclampsia
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Ruptured placenta
  • Vasa Praevia

Defined as an avoidable injury or condition affecting either mother or child that has been caused by the negligence of a medical professional, an antenatal injury can have devastating consequences. It is therefore important you have an experienced legal team at your side to help you through.
