Stillbirth – Case at Bath Royal United Hospital

7 September 2018

Clinical Negligence, News

Williamsons Solicitors have expertise in dealing with cases relating to Stillbirths and Neonatal Deaths as a result of negligent treatment. Wayne Walker, Solicitor within our Clinical Negligence Department has vast experience with such cases and he has acted on a number of cases which are very delicate and sensitive in nature.

A Recent press articles (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-somerset-45436233). Ms Matthews was 29 weeks pregnant when she contacted Bath’s Royal United Hospital (RUH). She was told to visit a birth centre where investigations showing her baby had a low heart rate were faxed to the RUH.

Ms Matthews was sent home but the next day there was no heartbeat and her son was stillborn a few days later.  Ms Matthews and her partner Carmine Lane, are now pursuing a clinical negligence claim against the trust.

She said: “Why didn’t we follow our own instincts and just go to Bath anyway, then it would have been harder for them to ignore us?”

Mr and Mrs England

We picked Williamsons to write our wills based on the reviews online. It’s true to say that those which recommended their services were totally accurate. We started the process only having a vague notion of our requirements but with Alison’s excellent coaching we ended up with wills which have ensured our wishes are fully captured. The whole process was friendly yet very thorough and we were given clear, understandable, explanations of each and every element. From this experience we have no hesitation in recommending Williamsons services.
