Cerebral Palsy Claims
Approximately 1800 children diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy every year. Many of these cases could have been prevented.
Childbirth should be one of the happiest times in life. Unfortunately, sometimes things go wrong. Cerebral Palsy is a developmental disorder and a leading cause of disability in young children - sometimes resulting from medical negligence.
Cerebral Palsy generally refers to a group of lifelong conditions affecting movement and co-ordination caused by problems with the brain before, during or soon after birth. Each case of CP is unique to the individual. The degree to which a brain injury affects a child’s motor functioning and intellectual abilities is highly dependent on the nature of the brain injury, the damage sustained and how severe it is.
