How to Choose a Birth Injury Lawyer

A birth injury occurs occasionally during the birth process. The baby may suffer physical injury, which is simply a result of being born, however this usually occurs during a difficult delivery.

Cerebral palsy is a life-long condition and can affect individuals in different ways. Some children with cerebral palsy will have learning difficulties while others may suffer from physical disabilities. Adapted facilities and additional care require a significant amount of money and for this reason many people choose to make a claim for compensation to help their child to remain financially secure and enable them to receive the best standard of care.

Pursuing a claim for a birth injury can be a daunting process so it’s important that you have an experienced and specialist solicitor on your side to maximise your chances of success.

We bring you our guide on what to look out for when choosing the right birth injury lawyer for you.

Licensing and accreditation

When it comes to choosing the right lawyer, it’s best to take a cautious approach. We don’t believe that you should have to deal with a poor service, but unfortunately there are some less than reputable firms out there. Amateur lawyers are often under qualified and inexperienced which can put you at risk of receiving a second-rate service or left out of pocket. An experienced, professional law firm should be licensed with appropriate accreditations to prove their service meets the requirements of relevant national standards.

Express Solicitors are accredited by the Law Society as a Specialist Personal Injury Practice and a corporate member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.

Specialist knowledge

There are a number of advantages that come with hiring a specialist lawyer that concentrates on cerebral palsy and birth injury claims. Focused lawyers:

  • Are well versed in the intricacies of cerebral palsy
  • Have the necessary resources to develop your birth injury case
  • Understand what you are going through in order to guide you sympathetically through the process
  • Have knowledge of the day to day difficulties caring for a disabled child brings
  • Have a network of qualified experts they can consult in particularly specialised case. 


Past client testimonials and successes really do hold weight and can help you establish whether a lawyer is qualified to take on your case. Look out for quality recommendations, which will reflect on the service you can expect to receive.

At Express Solicitors we not only help you to obtain the compensation your child deserves, but we also provide a source of support and will guide you through the legal process, step by step.
