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.

There are exceptions to the three-year rule in some cases, so if you think you might have a claim we advise you to contact us as soon as possible so we can determine your chances for successful compensation.

If you are making a claim for an accident at work then there are 3 main exceptions to the three-year rule:

  • Mental Capacity – if your loved one no longer has the mental capacity to make a claim themselves
  • Working Abroad – if your accident happened while you were working abroad.
  • Defective Work Equipment – if your injury was caused by equipment that had a manufacturing defect.

The amount of compensation varies depending on the type of accident, the severity of the illness or injury, and the individual situation as each person can be affected differently.

As the amount varies case to case, our personal injury solicitors can assess your situation and provide you with a more accurate quote. For a quick estimate on how much you could be entitled to, why not visit our claims calculator?

  • Medical Care & Prescription Costs
  • Rehabilitation
  • Loss of Earnings
