Cerebral Palsy Claim
Having a baby is supposed to be one of the happiest moments of your life but when things go wrong during childbirth this can lead to a huge amount of distress and anxiety for you and your family. Cerebral palsy is one of the most common forms of birth injury effecting 1 in 10,000 babies born in the UK and is caused when a baby is starved of oxygen at birth. Cerebral palsy can cause brain damage – to varying degrees – and can also lead to other mental and physical disabilities later on in life.
Most sufferers of cerebral palsy will require long term care and assistance, often for the rest of their lives. Often the families of the cerebral palsy sufferer are simply not in a position to provide this care alone – they simply do not have the time, money or ability to do so.
Loyalty Law’s expert solicitors specialise in cerebral palsy claims and are able to advise you about making a claim for compensation, not only for the pain and suffering caused, but for the cost of any treatment that may be required over the coming years. Our Loyalty Law service for you is without charge and without obligation and we will ensure that you are put in touch with a solicitor quickly who can answer all of your questions and help to alleviate your fears about the future.
The cost of making a claim
In most cases, where a claim is being made on behalf of a child who has been suffered a cerebral palsy injury during the course of childbirth, legal aid will be available to fund the claim. It is the child’s finances/income that it is assessed not that of the parents or carers.
How long do you have to make a claim?
If a claim is being made for an infant that has been affected by cerebral palsy, then they (or the person claiming on their behalf) have until their 21st birthday to make a claim. However, it is usually most beneficial to you, the Claimant (or their representative), to take steps to claim for compensation as soon as you become aware that you may be entitled to do so.
Why choose Loyalty Law for your cerebral palsy claim?
All Loyalty Law solicitors are checked and vetted to ensure that they meet our criteria in the following ways:
- Before they can start working with us and for you, they are individually interviewed by our managing director, a solicitor himself (although no longer practising). He is quickly able to assess whether they have the legal skills, but also whether they are easy to speak with on the telephone and will give you the confidence to believe in the service that you deserve.
- At the end of every legal matter that a Loyalty Law solicitor handles for one of our clients, we carry out an interview with the client to ensure that they have been completely satisfied with the service. This ensures that not only does the solicitor start off by providing an excellent service when he joins us, but through your feedback they continue to achieve the right service levels and continue to make you happy. This is important to us and is one of the reasons why we believe Loyalty Law is the right place for you to choose your solicitor.
