Cerebral Palsy Compensation Claims

Contact us

Cerebral palsy is the name given to a group of conditions caused by a brain injury in a very young child.

It usually causes a physical disability and sometimes also causes an intellectual disability. The degree of injury and disability can range from mild to severe.

Cerebral palsy caused by medical error

Most cerebral palsy cases occur because of unavoidable events, however sometimes it is caused by a medical error. Some examples of cases where our lawyers have obtained compensation for clients include:

  • A failure to perform a caesarean section where one was indicated because of foetal distress
  • An unacceptable delay in performing a caesarean section
  • A failure to diagnose and treat post natal jaundice caused by incompatible blood type between mother and child
  • A failure to diagnose and treat maternal infection
