Cerebral palsy claims & compensation in Belfast & Northern Ireland
Cerebral palsy is a collection of conditions that stem from a child’s brain being oxygen deprived during, before or after childbirth. We can also assist you with other birth injuries such as erb’s palsy and fractures. Although instances of failure of care leading to cerebral palsy are growing increasingly rarer, accidents do sometimes happen. Unfortunately, when mistakes are made during childbirth, the consequences can be severe and last a lifetime. Our clinical negligence department has been involved in many high-value and widely reported cerebral palsy claims cases over the years.
We will work towards getting your child:
- Compensation for their pain & suffering.
- A lifetime of care, including physiotherapy, speech & language therapy, occupational therapy, schooling & more.
- Accessible home improvements, suitable transportation and various assistive technologies.
- Legal aid funding to cover the costs of bringing a case and interim payments if liability is not contested.
Cerebral palsy claims require genuine expertise as cases can be lengthy and highly complex. You should choose your solicitor carefully and apply as much due diligence as you can whilst considering who you want to represent your child.
