Birth injury claims

Michael is a direct access barrister who has been assisting individuals and their families bringing birth injury claims for over 20 years.

For most people, the birth of a child is a joyous occasion. For a minority of mums and dads, an injury sustained by their child at birth can result in developmental problems. Probably the most serious of these is cerebral palsy.

Michael worked extensively on a number of birth inury claims involving cerebral palsy. The valuation of a claim involving birth injury can run into millions of pounds and it is important to use someone who has experienced these heads of claim already.

If you or a member of your family should need assistance with a case involving an injury that was sustained either by the mother or the baby, either during pregnancy or at birth, then Michael should be able to help you.


Recent Testimonials

“I was the victim of negligence which left me with life, changing conditions, thank God I can still walk. I was introduced to Michael Shaw through a mutual friend. We made contact, and he took my case on. What an outstanding service, I was provided with. He was always there at the end of the phone and always returned my emails through some of the toughest times of my life. Even when he was on holiday with his family, which is outstanding service. He understood what I was going through, mentally and physically I can’t thank you enough for the service you provided me; and now the case has come to a resolution I can start to rebuild my life. I would always recommend him to friends and family”.
