Cerebral Palsy and Birth Injury

Mistakes made during pregnancy, labour or shortly after birth can lead to babies being deprived of oxygen. This may result in brain injury, such as cerebral palsy, a neurological condition affecting the brain and nervous system.

We trust in the medical profession to look after us, particularly at significant times in our lives, such as childbirth. However, errors can be made which can result in serious injury.

Our child brain injury team, led by Claudia Hillemand who is an accredited member of the AvMA specialist clinical negligence panel, have vast experience of handling a variety of birth injury claims – as well as cerebral palsy claims – effectively and sympathetically. Our specialist solicitors have successfully secured much needed compensation for injured mothers and children, providing families with peace of mind that there will sufficient funds available in the future to meet the complex care and therapeutic needs of their children.

We understand the difficulties you may experience when bringing a birth injury clinical negligence claim and can guide you through this very difficult and stressful process. Similarly, we have a wealth of knowledge in bringing cerebral palsy compensation claims, helping parents whose children developed cerebral palsy due to mistakes during or shortly after birth.

As specialists in the area of cerebral palsy negligence claims, we recognise the success of your claim will depend on the knowledge and experience of the medical experts deployed. It’s important to ensure appropriate experts are instructed to achieve the best possible outcome. We have established relationships with many renowned medical experts in relevant areas such as obstetrics, midwifery, neonatology, paediatric neurology and neuroradiology. We ensure the medical evidence used in your case is of the highest standard and that the experts we engage have the experience and knowledge to support your claim effectively.

We also recognise the difficulties involved in caring for an injured child and the importance of providing families with a good quality of life. We’re familiar with the everyday problems that you may face, including difficulties accessing the medical treatment, therapy, assistance and equipment you will need to care for your child and aid your own recovery. In cases where liability is resolved, we seek interim payments at an early stage to ensure access to such treatment, support and assistance. This provides you with the financial means to access what your child needs while their cerebral palsy claim is ongoing. We’re also able to provide our clients with a specialist ‘immediate needs assessment’ service designed to identify any additional help and support your child may need to minimise their problems in the immediate, medium and longer term.

If you or your child experienced negligent treatment that caused your child to develop a brain injury, contact us today to have an informal chat about the possibility of bringing a cerebral palsy negligence claim against those responsible.
