Neonatal Birth Injuries*

A neonatal birth injury is any type of impairment that affects a newborn’s body function or structure that can be attributed to an adverse event during or following labour and delivery. Birth injuries of this kind can range from mild, which heal quickly on their own, to more serious injuries that cause serious and permanent damage to the newborn. Specific neonatal birth injuries include:

  • Mismanaged Breathing Problems that cause Cerebral Palsy, Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE), Periventricular Leukomalacia & Retinopathy of Prematurity
  • Elevated Bilirubin, Jaundice, and Kernicterus
  • Encephalitis
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Infection and Meningitis
  • Meconium Aspiration Syndrome
  • Neonatal Hypoglycemia (Low Blood Sugar)
  • Overventilation and Hypocarbia
  • Periventricular Leukomalacia (PVL)
  • Sepsis
  • Stroke During or Near the Time of Delivery

Your Case - Tell Us

About Us is a team of experienced solicitors and medical consultants who specialise in taking on medical negligence claims.

The team is headed up by Siobhan Fahy, Solicitor.

We are all well qualified in our respective fields and have years of experience in the area of medical negligence. We seek justice and financial compensation for patients who feel that they have been the victim of medical neglect.

We recognise the dedication of those who serve in our hospitals and health service, but the reality is that our health system is so inadequate that many people find they have become victims of a particular consultant or the Health Service Executive itself. We are here to help.
