Cerebral palsy - what you need to know
Cerebral palsy is the name given to a group of conditions causing problems with movement. It is caused by complications in the development of or damage to the brain, often before birth, but sometimes at the time of or shortly after birth.
As well as causing physical disabilities, cerebral palsy sufferers can sometimes have difficulties with speech, eating, behaviour and learning, and can develop epilepsy.
But we're not here to educate you. If you’re looking at our site, you probably already know what cerebral palsy is and are looking for help as to whether yours or your child’s condition could have been avoided with better medical treatment. That is where we come in.
Our solicitors act for many people who have cerebral palsy as a result of completely avoidable brain damage at their birth. Whilst we accept that not every cerebral palsy sufferer has been the victim of medical negligence, we have seen countless cases where poor medical management of a child’s birth has led to a devastating brain injury and life-long disabilities. We specialise in making sure these claims get investigated thoroughly, and that our clients are awarded the maximum compensation they need to look after them for the rest of their lives. We also have a track record of taking on the most difficult of cases, when other lawyers have failed, and bringing them to a successful conclusion.
