    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.
       

    How our clinical negligence lawyers can help with a cerebral palsy claim:

    • Providing a personal service and acting with sensitivity is important to us
    • We can help you find out why the system has failed you and what went wrong to prevent the same thing happening to somebody else

      • the best independent case managers and consultants in the country
      • barristers known for their expertise in cerebral palsy clinical negligence
      • clinical negligence lawyers with experience in cerebral palsy claims
    • We can help you with applications to the Court of Protection for appointing a Deputy to manage the money of someone who has suffered cerebral palsy as a result of a birth injury or for setting up a personal injury trust
    • Our lawyers are specialists in medical negligence cases and our clinical negligence team is one of the most established teams in the country
    • We are highly ranked by two of the most prestigious, independent guides to the legal profession 'Chambers and Partners' and 'The Legal 500'.

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

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 very helpful and friendly.

Client

I would like to thank Jenny and her team for all their hard work and efforts during what has been a very traumatic 3 years.  Throughout this period, Jenny has been on hand with reassurance and advice.  At the same time, she assembled an excellent team of experts, which enabled me to reach a successful conclusion.

Client

I am so grateful to TS&P for all their work and help with my mother's case; it was a very complicated and time-consuming case.
