Recent figures show that although twenty percent of all medical negligence claims brought in Ireland relate to alleged obstetric fault, they represent fifty-five percent of estimated liability. This is due to the high settlement costs associated with the most serious birth-related claims.

This book will equip legal practitioners who may have little or no knowledge of a specific birth-related injury with the knowledge they need to advise on such cases. This is the first authoritative text to provide such comprehensive and in-depth guidance.

The book is divided into two parts, the first being dedicated to the child and the second covering issues around the mother. The section covering the child contains chapters on cerebral palsy and spinal cord injuries etc. the section on the mother contains chapters on assisted delivery injuries and Caesarean section delays etc.

As well as covering the legal implications, including UK and Irish case law, the book also explains the various compensable birth injuries from a medical perspective.

This book will prove useful to both lawyers and medical professionals alike.
