A proportion of cerebral palsy cases can be attributed to difficulties during labour and birth. Although maternity care has improved over the years, some of these cases unfortunately still arise due to substandard medical care and unprecedented birth negligence.

Some of our most recent cerebral palsy compensation settlements include:

There are many types of cerebral palsy, but the three main ones are:

  • Athetoid cerebral palsy, in which the control of muscles and posturing are affected by spontaneous uncontrolled movements.

  • Spastic cerebral palsy, in which control and movement is very difficult because some of the muscles in the body are tight, stiff and sometimes weak.
  • Ataxic cerebral palsy, which involves difficulties with speech and balance, as well as uncontrolled shaking movements of the hands and/or feet.

Most cerebral palsy claims involve allegations that there was a failure to deliver a child when there were indications of stress. A delay in delivery of a child may result in the baby being deprived of oxygen, which can often cause cerebral palsy.

Client Testimonial

I was given the details of Longden Walker & Renney as a company whole could deal with a medical claim I had. I had never heard of them before, but from the moment that Alison Ainsley made contact with me, I was made to feel completely at ease. Alison was professional throughout and very thorough in every aspect of this case. I was kept up to date on a constant basis, and everything was fully explained to me in terms that I could easily understand.
