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
