Cerebral palsy cases, involving (as they nearly always do) interrupted blood or oxygen provision to the brain, are usually linked to either birth injuries or problems arising from major surgery. Brain damage of this type can also arise from very serious infections.
Cerebral palsy symptoms can vary widely, from the barely perceptible, to the very seriously disabling. Accordingly, the potential value of a cerebral palsy compensation claim can equally vary from a very modest award to compensation involving many millions of pounds in the most severe of cases.
You should not let worries about paying legal costs put you off seeking justice. We work on a no win, no fee basis and will fund your cerebral palsy claim ourselves from start to finish.
Although claims should usually be brought within three years of the patient becoming aware that negligence may have been involved, this time limit doesn’t not start to run until the injured individual turns 18 years of age. And if the victim lacks mental capacity there is no time bar at all.
