Miscarriage Negligence Claims
Miscarriage can be a heartbreaking experience for would-be parents, particularly if the pregnancy was much-longed-for. A difficult time is made even harder when medical negligence causes the pregnancy to fail. Negligence is not the reason for all miscarriages, but if you believe it was the cause of yours, The Medical Negligence Experts can help.
What is Miscarriage Negligence?
Miscarriage negligence is when the care provided to the expectant mother is of an unacceptable standard and which causes, or significantly increases the chance, of miscarriage. Examples of miscarriage caused by negligence include:
- Failure to check whether a woman is pregnant before carrying out a risky procedure.
- Inability to diagnose and treat bacterial infections caused by mycoplasma hominis and ureaplasma urealyticum.
- Failure to detect an ectopic pregnancy.
- Failure to treat conditions like PCOS and thyroid conditions to reduce the risk of miscarriage.
- Fitting of a contraceptive coil without first checking for pregnancy.
Estimates are that a quarter of all confirmed pregnancies will end in miscarriage, with the majority of them (80%) failing in the first 12 weeks. Many of these happen spontaneously and are impossible to avoid. However, a small percentage is due to, or at least strongly influenced, by negligent medical care.
How Can We Help?
The first thing to do is to talk to a miscarriage negligence specialist at The Medical Claims Experts. Compensation for a failed pregnancy due to medical negligence is not always easy to prove, but for a claim to be successful, that is what must happen. We will request your medical records so our independent medical expert can assess them to determine if you have grounds for a claim for miscarriage due to medical negligence.
We understand that no situation is the same, and your physical and emotional pain is unique. You probably have a wealth of questions about your particular circumstances, including how long a miscarriage claim takes, and what compensation you can expect. The answers to these depend on the complexity of your case and how straightforward it is to prove not only that your care was inadequate, but that you were highly unlikely to have suffered a miscarriage without being subject to negligence.
If you decide to pursue your claim, we will act on your behalf and submit a request for compensation to the responsible care provider. They will conduct their inquiry and acknowledge responsibility and make an offer of compensation, or they will deny liability in which case we will submit your claim to court. A court can identify blame and instruct compensation to be paid, but it can’t force a negligent care provider to apologise, or even change their procedures.
The amount of compensation will be calculated taking into account any physical damage you have endured which may affect her chances of having a successful pregnancy in the future and whether you meet the required criteria for emotional trauma.
The Medical Negligence Experts never forgets that there is a person who has suffered an injustice at the heart of every claim, who deserves to have their injury acknowledged and compensated.
