Cerebral palsy is a non-progressive disorder which primarily affects movement. It can occur as a result of a brain injury which can happen before, during or shortly after birth.
Although some cases of cerebral palsy are due to natural causes such as abnormal brain development of the brain in the pre-26 week stage of pregnancy, some are caused by inadequate care during the process of delivery and birth and we have proven success in pursuing cerebral palsy compensation claims.
Cerebral palsy affects around one in every 400 children in the UK.
Brain damage and cerebral palsy can be severely disabling and often has a devastating effect on family life. It is vital to obtain financial compensation to cover the costs of care and to provide financial security for the lifetime of the injured person.
A cerebral palsy compensation claim can help cover these essential costs.
- A cerebral palsy compensation claim can help to fund future care and life long security through lump sums and periodical payments
- Therapies including occupational, physiotherapy, speech and language, and hydrotherapy
- Specially adapted accommodation
- Funding for first tier tribunal appeals on statements of special educational needs
- Specialist equipment
- Specialist IT facilities
- Carers, support and special arrangements or accommodation for holidays
- Reimbursement for previous care, loss of earnings and expense incurred
