Cerebral palsy is a serious condition that develops before, during or soon after childbirth, and affects a person’s ability to control and move their muscles. Cerebral palsy not only changes the life of the sufferer, but also that of their family.
If cerebral palsy has been caused by substandard medical care, the sufferer is entitled to compensation. A successful claim can help relieve the financial pressure of living with the condition.
Caring for someone with cerebral palsy
We understand the challenges that people face when caring for someone with cerebral palsy, and why financial support is so important.
Claiming medical negligence compensation can help to pay for ongoing care, adapting your home, covering the cost of professional carers, or special schooling.
