Cerebral Palsy Claims
Devastating news can come in many forms, but to be told your child has sustained a brain injury as a result of a negligent action is devastating and can be hard to accept.
Cerebral Palsy can vary in its severity and will depend on the extent of the initial accident. A child may be deprived of oxygen as a result of medical negligence during the birth. Parents may only know that their child was very ill after delivery and special care was needed, and other parents may have seen their child succumb to other illnesses such as meningitis and have concern about how early the treatment was started.
Common causes of Cerebral Palsy:
- Failure to diagnose or treat low blood sugar
- Failure to diagnose or treat jaundice
- Failure to diagnose or treat meningitis
- Delay in delivery causing oxygen deprivation
The medical professionals in the UK are of the highest quality and accidents like this are very rare. Failures can have life-long consequences and may often take years to fully manifest. Care of your child with cerebral palsy may mean round the clock supervision and support, as well as assistance for you and your family. Compensation will allow your lives to return to the way they should be, as best they can, and secure a future for your child. The financial and psychological effects can have a damaging effect on victims and the child requiring special education, tailored treatment programmes and the hardship of coping with Cerebral Palsy as a family dramatically affects your quality of life and takes a heavy mental toll.
