Compensation for cerebral palsy
Whether you are born with it, or develop it as the result of an accident, cerebral palsy has the ability to heavily affect a person’s life in a physical manner. Cerebral palsy is the blanket term used to describe a condition which prevents a person from performing normal physical tasks, usually as a result of severe brain damage that a person is either born with, or that they sustain through physical trauma.
Due to the large impact that cerebral palsy can have on a person’s life, it can be a costly illness, especially if it was caused through the fault of another person, for this reason you may consider a compensation claim.
IF I SUSTAIN CEREBRAL PALSY, WHO COULD I CLAIM AGAINST?
If you were to sustain cerebral palsy then there are a number of people who you could consider a claim against, depending on how your injuries were sustained. If your injuries were sustained through negligence during child birth or pregnancy then you could be eligible to claim against your doctor or healthcare professional. If you developed cerebral palsy as the result of an accident then you could claim against anyone whose negligence has caused your accident.
WHAT ARE SOME SYMPTOMS OF CEREBRAL PALSY?
If your child suffers from cerebral palsy then there are a number of symptoms that they might exhibit and these include:
- Increased or decreased muscle tone
- Slow development of walking, crawling and speech
- Muscle stiffness on one side of the body
- Poor coordination and clumsy behaviour
- Random and uncontrolled body movements.
