Cerebral palsy compensation to support you and your family

Looking after a child with cerebral palsy can be exhausting, demanding, and financially costly. Specialist equipment is often required, as well as care and treatment on a daily basis. Not only can the daily demands of caring for a child with cerebral palsy leave parents physically and mentally drained, very often they can struggle to meet the costs of basic care, sometimes due to having to give up their employment. All of these factors will be considered in cerebral palsy claims in the UK.

Our team of cerebral palsy Solicitors are sensitive to the variety of additional needs and challenges faced by individuals and families who find themselves in such a situation. We have had many successes obtaining substantial pay-outs that are essential to providing care in the years ahead.

Should you engage our services, our cerebral palsy lawyers will ensure that they keep you fully informed at every stage of your claim, allowing you to make the best legal decisions.

Types of cerebral palsy claims

Cerebral palsy can be attributed to any type of condition that affects your child’s movement and coordination. If the birth of your child was not straightforward and failures occurred during the procedure, brain damage may have occurred. Oxygen deprivation is a major cause of this condition and could have been the result of your midwife or obstetrician not interpreting test results correctly, or another clinical misjudgement. Any of the following causes, if shown to be due to act of medical negligence, could lead to a cerebral palsy claim:

  • Oxygen deprivation during birth
  • Low blood sugar being untreated, or not diagnosed
  • Jaundice being left unattended
  • Meningitis, or some other similar condition, not being detected
