Cerebral Palsy Claims
Expectant parents are understandably very excited about the prospect of a new arrival. So when something goes wrong at birth the consequences can be particularly tragic not just for the new born baby and the parents but also for other family members. As the compensation will have to last a lifetime of disability the damages recovered can often run into millions of pounds. In part because of the size of these claims they are often fiercely defended by a limited number of specialist solicitors instructed by the National Health Service Litigation Authority (the “NHSLA”).
To ensure that your interests are properly protected it is vital that you also have a specialist medical negligence lawyer like those at Hart Brown on your side. We are very experienced at investigating the causes of cerebral palsy and dealing with cerebral palsy claims. We know the best experts to involve and the right barristers to instruct.
Cases which we have successfully handled include:
- £2.3 million recovered for a failure to carry out a caesarean section despite signs of foetal distress resulting in athetoid cerebral palsy
- nearly £5 million recovered for a 37 year old man whose parents had originally been advised within a few years of the birth that he had no claim.
- approximately £5 million recovered for a 7 year old girl in respect of a delay in delivery.
- £1.25 million recovered in respect of delay before delivery of a compromised baby by a caesarean section.
