The most common form of birth injury to the child is Cerberal Palsy.

Cerebral Palsy is a condition in the part of the brain that controls muscles. The condition can arise if the brain develops unusually, or is damaged before, throughout, or shortly after birth.

Cerebral Palsy claims in England & Wales are typically made if there are problems during the delivery of the baby. Stress indicates that the child could be deprived of oxygen, which could cause lasting brain damage. any signals like this are acted upon immediately by healthcare professionals.

If your child has been affected by Cerebral Palsy due to a delay in action by healthcare professionals or birth injury then you may be eligible to claim. The compensation we help recover gives your child the opportunity to receive the required financial funds to ensure they can receive the best care, treatment, therapies & housing to certify that they achieve their potential.
