We are pleased to announce that JMD Law has been awarded a 3 year contract by the Legal Aid Agency to offer Legal Aid in clinical negligence cases.
We are one of only a handful of firms in South Wales to hold this contract.
Legal Aid is only available to investigate claims on behalf of babies who are seriously injured at birth.
If you are concerned that your child suffered serious injury through poor care please contact Jane Rogers on 02920 456780.
The Health Board said that in the past 3 years, 26 babies have died at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital, Prince Charles hospital and at home.
The Director of Nursing acknowledges that there have been problems recruiting and retaining maternity staff but is reviewing paperwork of these sad losses to ensure that the services provided are safe.
The Health Board has appointed 15 new midwives and a consultant midwife.
Any further information arising from the investigation will be shared in full with the families concerned.
Jane Rogers of JMD Law said:
“The open approach taken by the Health Board is a step in the right direction in providing the best possible care for women and their babies.
Whilst the outcome of the investigation is awaited, if you are one of the families affected you can contact Jane Rogers on 02920 456780 for advice
The number of High Court disputes relating to wills has jumped more than a third in five years, as increasing numbers of people are writing their own. Nigel Jones of JMD Law said that last year almost four out of 10 people executed wills without calling in an expert despite the danger of being sued by family members: “Homemade Wills may result in a legal dispute if someone does not think they have been left what they were promised, the wording is ambiguous or it has not been signed correctly. It really is a false economy to try and do your own rather than use an experienced solicitor, to try and save the fee”. Six in 10 Briton have failed to write a will, according to research by Which? Legal.

Anyone affected by this tragedy can contact me on 02920 456780 for advice. I am accredited by the Foundation for Infant Loss to provide specialist legal advice to bereaved families”.
