Bringing a Claim for Cerebral Palsy: The “Older” Claimant

In my last blog, I talked about some of the tell-tale signs for birth related hypoxic brain injury and what might trigger an investigation into the way in which pregnancy, labour or delivery has been managed.  The rules on limitation (ie the time limits for bringing a claim) mean that for a child with cerebral palsy, a claim may be capable of being brought many years after the event.  This is because with children, the typical three year time limit does not start to run until they turn 18, meaning that they have until their 21st birthday to formally commence proceedings.

Cerebral Palsy - what are the triggers for investigating a clinical negligence claim?

For many children and adults there is no connection between their cerebral palsy and the circumstances of their birth. For others there is a direct causal link, and for them, their injury may have been avoidable.
