But discovering that the loss of their child was avoidable makes it even more heartbreaking for parents and their loved ones. In this sad case, we were instructed in a clinical negligence claim arising from the stillbirth of our client’s son in September 2017. Unfortunately, the stillbirth occurred in June 2014, and as there is a statutory limit of three years to start a compensation claim for stillbirth negligence, on the face of it the time limit had expired.
