    When can you make a compensation claim for cerebral palsy?

    Life with a child with cerebral palsy has a profound impact on the whole family. Ensuring the right amount of compensation is paid can give someone access to the support they need throughout their lives and ease the care load for loved ones.

    Our overriding aim is to protect the interests of you and your child and achieve the most advantageous outcome for the long term. We make sure your case is fully investigated and guide you carefully through each step of the claim process.

    Around 10% of children with cerebral palsy develop the condition as a result of birth injury. Cerebral palsy claims can be complicated and require a clinical negligence lawyer with specialist expertise and experience in this area. Visit our birth injury page for information on claiming for other types of birth injury.

    Cerebral palsy claims can arise for many reasons, including:

    • Delay in delivery causing lack of oxygen during the birth
    • Failure to diagnose or treat low blood sugar
    • Failure to diagnose or treat jaundice.

Jenny was very good at thinking of all the options and sought good experts in supporting my case; I was pleased with the outcome

Client

I would like to express my extreme gratitude to you for all your hard work.  

Client

Any time I needed to ask a question or needed any explanation about the case, James Cahan was there at the end of the phone. He answers his own phone so I felt as though I was getting a very personal service. I was never made to feel uncomfortable or a nuisance as I had felt with an earlier solicitor. Communication was excellent throughout, using emails, telephone and letters.  

Client

My case was earlier rejected by another firm of solicitors yet Mr Cahan could see that there was a case to answer. With the expert medical witnesses which he sourced, good communication and sound advice, I felt very confident in his hands that we would get a successful outcome.

Client

Very nice people. Really made the case a lot easier to understand; they were always there to help.

Client

James Cahan's approach was exemplary, he was both approachable and understanding at all times.  

Client

As mentioned, I was very impressed at the start! As the case grew and went on, I felt completely safe, and trusted Jonathan to act in my best interests, though everything was always run by me before going ahead with anything, without the experience and knowledge.

Client

They worked as hard as possible to get me a result that I did not think I would end up with. The communication with my lawyer and his staff was excellent, and I felt at ease discussing such private matters with my lawyer, which is a rarity for me as I am a very private person.

Client

My lawyer was very friendly and easy to talk to, and I always felt he was working his hardest on my case.

Client

Oliver was very helpful and friendly, and settled the case within a short space of time.

Client

Kept me up to date with all stages of the claim. Fees were good, and Oliver was a very helpful and friendly.
