If you or someone you love suffers from Cerebral Palsy, it can be difficult for all involved. The sufferer will likely need care and support by those closest to them in order to move forward and it can put added financial stress on the family unit.
In most cases, Cerebral Palsy is a naturally occurring event with no obvious cause, however in some instances it can be the result of inadequate medical treatment, either before or after birth. In these particular cases you may be able to make a claim for Cerebral Palsy compensation. Making a claim for compensation can never make up for what happened, but it can ensure the patient’s quality of life is improved and that the care they receive in the future is of the highest standard.
