Cerebral palsy can be caused by an injury to a baby’s brain during birth or early childhood. Approximately 2,000 babies are diagnosed with cerebral palsy in the UK every year.

Symptoms of cerebral palsy

Cerebral palsy is a term used to cover several neurological conditions that affect a child's ability to control muscles and movements. This can lead to difficulty with mobility, eating and talking as well as problems with coordination and balance.

Rehabilitation professionals can help children with cerebral palsy to become more independent.

Claiming compensation for cerebral palsy

If you believe your child has been injured due to a medical professional’s negligence you should speak to a specialist cerebral palsy lawyer about your circumstances and claiming for compensation. All lawyers listed on this page specialise in cerebral palsy claims.
