Having a baby should be one of the most magical times of your life. You have cared for a nurtured your growing baby for nine months and expectations run extremely high in the lead-up to the birth. This can make it all the more disappointing when mistakes happen, however minor; and these mistakes can often have a long-lasting psychiatric, if not physical impact on both the infant and their families.

We understand that injuries that occur during birth can be anything from what would be considered to be a ‘minor’ injury to either the mother, or the child, right up to something as serious as oxygen starvation during the course of labour, resulting in catastrophic injuries to the infant which will impact on them, and their families for the rest of their lives.

At McKeag & Co, we have a wealth of experience in dealing with many types of birth injury claims, and will always ensure that you, or your child, are appropriately compensated for the injury that has been sustained, including the cost of any remedial treatment, for example, remedial surgery, or therapy, and, where appropriate, the cost of an appropriate care package and accommodation.

Whilst no one can change what has happened, we will strive to ensure that you achieve maximum recovery to make your life more comfortable and make your injury and what has happened easier for you to deal with.

If you or your infant experiences an injury as a consequence of a mistake in your medical treatment, please contact us on 0191 213 1010, or fill in our form for a free , no obligation discussion about your claim.

Birth Injury Due To Medical Negligence

No Win, No Fee

With no win no fee, there aren’t any upfront charges or hidden costs. If you do win your case, we will charge you a ‘success fee’ as a percentage of the compensation you receive, this will then be capped at a maximum of 25% – and in many cases this is significantly less than this so you will receive the majority yourself. This fee will be agreed between you and your solicitor before we take on your case.

McKeag & Co have been established on Tyneside for over 100 years and during this time have been successful in obtaining millions of pounds compensation for people who have suffered abuse.
