Making a cerebral palsy claim

Our Legal 500 recommended lawyers will provide you with a free assessment of any potential cerebral palsy claim and can work on a no win, no fee basis. Simply call our FREE legal helpline on 0800 975 8091 or email us at [email protected]

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.

As with all medical injury claims, a very careful analysis of the patient’s medical notes and history, along with specialist expert evidence, is crucial to establishing a strong case. Our team of medical negligence lawyers have a great deal of combined experience in dealing with these cases and are always happy to have an informal chat.

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.
