The cerebral-palsy site is a subsidiary of the personal injury law firm – Express Solicitors – that pursues ‘no win no fee’ compensation claims throughout England and Wales.
Express Solicitors has a specialist department that handles all cerebral palsy and birth injury cases, ensuring that only experts in the field are handling your child’s case.
It is vital to our solicitors that your child has the financial resource to ensure a good quality of life and that they receive the maximum amount of compensation possible in order to guarantee that. Cerebral palsy is a life-long condition and can affect individuals in different ways. Some children with cerebral palsy will have extreme learning difficulties meaning they require extra assistance in day-to-day life and 24 hour care. Other children with cerebral palsy may suffer from extreme physical disabilities meaning that they are confined to a wheelchair for much or all of the time. Those children will require adaptations to their home, especially as they grow older. Such facilities and care require a significant amount of money and making a claim for compensation can help your child to remain financially secure and enable them to receive the best standard of care.
Of course, not all cases of cerebral palsy are the result of medical negligence. Only a small minority of those affected have the condition because of the failings of the medical profession, who for the most part provide exemplary care. However, the condition is life changing for both the child affected and their families.
It can be difficult and time consuming to pursue a case of this type as the investigations are thorough and involve a number of different medical disciplines, as well as educational specialists, occupational therapists and social workers. They can often take many years to conclude, because the full extent of the damage caused and its effect on your child may not been known until they are of school age. Sometimes, the child can be 7 or 8 years of age before the full effects of the condition are known.
However, if you successfully conclude a claim on your child’s behalf for negligently acquired cerebral palsy, or other profound brain injury, it can take away the financial strains placed on you and your family, and give both you and your child peace of mind that their future is at least financially secure.
If you believe that your child has cerebral palsy as a result of medical negligence it is important that you seek legal advice as soon as possible. You can call Express Solicitors on 0845 456 4007 to obtain advice from a specialist solicitor who will discuss the case with you and provide you with confidential advice on the options available to you.
