Answers to common cerebral palsy questions
Do you work on a No Win, No Fee basis?
Yes. As serious injury solicitors, we understand that you need a law firm that fights to secure the highest possible level of compensation for you, so your child has every chance to develop to his or her full potential.
Is there a time limit to make a cerebral palsy claim?
Generally, the cut off for making a claim is three years starting from your child’s 18th birthday, which means any time from the initial diagnosis up until they turn 21. However, this can be extended if your child lacks capacity.
I don’t have my child’s medical records. Can I still claim?
Yes. We will work with you to obtain your child’s medical records from both your GP and the hospital. Our team of cerebral palsy solicitors use these records to investigate and build your case.
Will I have to go to court?
Very unlikely. We settle the vast majority of cases outside of court in Joint Settlement Meetings. This is where we negotiate with the other side’s insurers to make sure that your child gets the best possible award.
I already have a solicitor. Can I change?
Yes. If you wish to get help from our team of specialists, you can. Simply get in touch and we will do all the work needed to transfer your case over to Serious Law.
