Compensation claim for Cerebral Palsy

Although all personal injury claims can be tough, there are some which can have a far more drastic impact on a person’s life than others. Often developed at birth, cerebral palsy can have a huge impact on the life of not only an individual, but also to many people around them. As a disease which affects the motor area of the brain, it can have a devastating impact on the individual and leave them without the ability to move correctly and potentially requiring assistance for the rest of their life. 

In most situations, cerebral palsy is caused by problems during child birth or even during the stages of pregnancy. If you feel that your medical professional has not taken the correct precautions for you at this time, you could be eligible to make a compensation claim.

What is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral Palsy is used to describe a number of different brain disorders which can cause problems with physical movement and control of the body within an individual. Generally caused at birth, cerebral palsy is not contagious and is normally caused by damage to the motor sensors within the brain area which can lead to a limitation in movement or the development of other mental illnesses including epilepsy. 

Who could I claim against?

In general, there are many situations which can cause cerebral palsy, but the most common occurrence of this illness tends to be as the result of birth trauma or problems which occur during labour or during the pregnancy period. If your child is born with cerebral palsy as the result of negligence on behalf of a midwife, doctor or anyone else who has been involved with you throughout your pregnancy, or throughout the delivery, then you could be eligible to make a claim against them.
