Am I eligible to make a cerebral palsy claim?

If your child has developed cerebral palsy, and you believe this was caused by the negligence of a medical professional, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Medical negligence is a particularly complex area of the law, but speaking to a cerebral palsy solicitor will help you to understand what steps you can take and whether your case is likely to be successful.

Is there a time limit to making a claim for cerebral palsy?

In most cases, you have three years from the date of injury - or the date you realised the cerebral palsy was caused by negligence - to make a compensation claim. However, in cases involving children, this is extended to three years after their 18th birthday.

How will my cerebral palsy claim be funded?

You may be eligible to have your cerebral palsy claim funded by Legal Aid. However, other forms of funding are available. We operate on a no win, no fee basis, which means you will not pay for our legal services if your case is not successful.

It is our aim to make the legal process as stress-free as possible for you and your family, and we can advise you on the funding options available to you before starting the claims process.


With offices across Yorkshire, we can provide our services across the entire county. To find out if you can make a cerebral palsy compensation claim, call us for free on 01484 821 500, or submit your claim online and a member of the team will get back to you as soon as possible.
