We understand the impact that having cerebral palsy can have on children and families. Children and adults with cerebral palsy often have complex additional needs and need extra support, therapy, equipment and care to reach their potential and enjoy life fully.
Cerebral palsy compensation claims
We are leading solicitors in helping clients to pursue compensation claims where their cerebral palsy has been caused by negligent treatment from doctors or midwives. We will make the legal process as easy for you as possible and get the answers you need to understand what went wrong.
We will strive to recover the compensation your child deserves, even when the claim is initially defended, and support you along the way.
We can offer Legal Aid funding or No Win No Fee so that you don’t have to worry about legal fees.
How we can help
We know from our years of experience how life-changing it can be to have the right compensation to provide for your child’s needs now and in the future, whether it is therapy, education, equipment, care, suitable accommodation, financial management, or all of those things and more. We will ensure that we help you obtain everything needed to give you peace of mind and your child financial security for the future, to enjoy life as much as possible and to have some fun as a family again. Our clients have been able to enjoy hydrotherapy pools, off-road wheelchairs and trikes, sensory rooms and gardens, adapted holiday accommodation, motor homes and caravans, adventure and riding activities and even wheelchair-adapted tree houses.
What can go wrong
We deal with claims where cerebral palsy has been caused by a range of avoidable errors in treatment during pregnancy, birth or in the days after birth. Some of these are listed below but whatever your situation, we are happy to advise you:-
- Delays in delivery;
- Hypoxia in labour;
- Missed antenatal warning signs;
- Vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC);

As well as getting compensation we have the expertise to help you with other support you may need.
