No Win No Fee Cerebral Palsy Solicitors
Cerebral Palsy is a long-term medical condition caused by damage to the motor control centres of the developing brain, for which there is no known cure. It can be caused by factors such as infections during early pregnancy, premature birth, starving the baby’s brain of oxygen during pregnancy or delivery, cerebral haemorrhage and genetic problems.
It can result in physical disabilities, impaired movement, problems with vision and perception, and communication and learning disorders. People who suffer from Cerebral Palsy may also go on to develop epilepsy and/or secondary musculoskeletal problems. They will typically require many years of specialist care, support and medical intervention.
A child that suffers from Cerebral Palsy as a direct result of medical negligence fully deserves to be compensated for the life-changing accident that has occurred. The family’s associated expenses, such as medical care, adjustments to the home and physical/occupational therapies, will be high and likely to continue for years. All of these expenses should be recouped in the case of clinical negligence. Successful birth injury and Cerebral Palsy claimants are often awarded millions of pounds in compensation in order to provide for the victim’s long-term care needs.
