Medical Negligence: Justice and Compensation for Hip Dysplasia

Claim compensation for medical negligence at birth

The birth of a new baby is a very special time for the parents and indeed their whole family. If things go wrong either during the pregnancy or birth, the effects can be devastating. Poorly managed delivery and after care can result in a number of injuries to your child. A delay in diagnosis or misdiagnosis of hip dysplasia can have serious and long-term consequences. These injuries impact not only the child but also the parents and the rest of the family.

If this has happened to someone close to you, they could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Genetics

During pregnancy genetic tests are sometimes carried out on the parents and/or the fetus (by taking a sample of the amniotic fluid). This is done to test for the presence of a specific disease or genetic abnormality. The tests can also tell whether a person is a “carrier” of a disease, this means that the person does not have the disease themselves but is capable of passing it to their children.

Misdiagnosis of a disease or genetic problem can have a devastating impact upon a family. Even when the family are anticipating the birth of a child with a genetic disease it can be incredibly difficult to come to terms with.

Our team are experienced in these complex cases and have obtained compensation for families whose genetic testing has been incorrectly reported.
