Make a cerebral palsy compensation claim

Give your child the best chance of a comfortable future

If your child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, it’s important to know that you are not alone.

Affecting as many as one in every 400 live births each year, cerebral palsy describes a group of neurological disorders caused by damage to the parts of the brain that control movement, balance and posture. It can occur during pregnancy, childbirth or shortly after birth.

Coming to terms with a diagnosis of cerebral palsy is difficult and overwhelming for many parents, particularly if you believe that the medical team made mistakes.

Help is here for you. Choosing first-class, specialist solicitors gives your child and your family a better chance of improving your situation. We’re an experienced team that you can lean on—one that empathises with your situation and is responsive to your needs.

It’s the start of a long journey, which involves much more than legal representation. With our help, you have the chance to give your child the very latest therapy and support, as well as getting financial assistance to secure the best possible quality of life for your child and your family.

Get experienced and sensitive support

We are Serious Injury Law Ltd, a leading law firm recognised by The Legal 500, with over 33 years’ experience in representing clients diagnosed with cerebral palsy.

During this time, we’ve secured many multi-million pound payments for our clients. We regularly take on and succeed in cases rejected by other law firms, and we accept transfers of cases that have ground to a halt at less specialist firms.

Working for you on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis, our team supports you through every stage of diagnosis and therapy, whilst our legal, medical and rehabilitation specialists evaluate your child’s situation.

Your child’s case may take many years to settle—and it should—because a case settled too early is unlikely to give you the maximum compensation award. At Serious Law, we understand the importance of waiting to see how your child develops, so that the life-long impact of their condition can be expertly assessed.

However, just because a cerebral palsy case takes time, it doesn’t mean that you must wait years to receive financial help and support for your child.

Early financial help as part of our complete service

Our specialist team offers you a service tailored to your precise situation. We draw upon longstanding relationships with some of the UK’s leading medical experts as we investigate your case for compensation, but we never lose sight of your urgent practical needs, as well as the long-term challenges that you and your child will face.

As soon as you appoint us, we look to secure early interim payments for you from the other side’s insurers—these represent an advance on the final compensation award for you to use on your child’s support package.

We also work to organise your child’s access to customised aids, the latest smart wheelchairs, home and transport adaptations such as lifts and hoists, speech technology, private treatment, or any other support to improve your child’s progress and wellbeing.

In our experience, these early interim payments and support interventions can make a huge difference to families affected by cerebral palsy, providing some initial comfort as well as improved peace of mind about the future.

Securing your child’s long-term future care

As cerebral palsy case specialists, we are here to help you and to fight to win your case, achieving the highest-value compensation award possible for your child.

Of course, a successful legal case cannot change what has happened to your child, but it can help you to secure justice and find some closure.

And whilst no amount of money can change your situation, a maximum compensation award can help to make your child’s life more comfortable, and alleviate some of the worries you may have about their long-term future and care.
