As leading Group B Strep solicitors, we have represented many families like yours to obtain maximum compensation for your child's care needs, as well as answers to your questions about what went wrong.
Our friendly and approachable team are here to guide you through the process, usually on a no-win, no-fee basis.
What is Group B Strep and when can you make a claim?
Group B Streptococcus is actually very common – the bacteria are found in roughly one in five pregnant women, in the digestive tract or the vagina. While healthy adults are generally unaffected, this can potentially be dangerous when passed on by a mother to her baby.
With correct treatment at an early stage, most babies will make a full recovery. But the impact can be devastating if symptoms are overlooked or treatment is not managed correctly. Some babies will be left with disabilities as a result of infection, and very sadly a small number of babies die each year.
If your child has been affected, you may be able to make a claim if Group B Strep was missed entirely or diagnosed too late, leading to life-affecting changes.
