Cerebral palsy claims: how are they funded?

As solicitors who regularly act on behalf of children suffering from cerebral palsy, we are often asked by parents how a clinical negligence claim for their child might be funded.  Understandably, this is an important issue for families who are already coping with their child’s additional needs and do not have the resources to fund a costly legal claim.

The importance of a roof over your head (is it time to revisit Roberts v Johnstone?)

At Kingsley Napley we specialise in high value claims. Any life changing condition, such as a spinal injury or cerebral palsy, may mean that the Claimant’s home is not suitable for their needs. As part of the case we will look very carefully at the Claimant’s current home situation and with the help of experts, evaluate whether it is appropriate for the needs of the Claimant.
