The Cerebral Palsy Solicitor website is operated by specialist medical negligence solicitors who have tried and won many cerebral palsy claims on behalf of clients across the United Kingdom.

Cerebral Palsy claims are usually fully Legal Aid funded with no financial contribution from the parents. This is because Legal Aid is available for compensation claims where brain damage has occured in the womb, during birth or in the first few weeks of life and only the child's income if any is taken into account. Many children who have suffered this type of brain injury will qualify for Legal Aid even though the parents may have substantial income and assets.
Cerebral palsy is a catastrophic injury, altering the lives of both victims and their families forever. Most families simply don't have the resources to cover all of the expenses and provide for the child victim over his or her lifetime. That's where we come in to help your child receive the compensation they deserve. If your child's condition resulted from medical negligence, we can help you assert your rights and get the compensation you need.
If you submit your details by using our Cerebral Palsy Solicitor contact form an experienced solicitor who is a member of The Law Society panel of medical negligence experts will review it and respond by telephone. We will give detailed advice on time limits and whether we think you have a claim, and if so, what steps you should take to protect your rights. We are not a claims management company and you will speak to an experienced solicitor immediately. We believe that there is no substitute for having a solicitor involved in your claim from the very beginning. Your child deserves the best so don't settle for less.
Less than 1% of UK solicitors are authorised to apply for Legal Aid for medical negligence claims. JMW solicitors are members of The Law Society panel of medical negligence experts and are franchised to make an immediate application for Legal Aid for which most children who suffer from cerebral palsy will qualify without financial contribution.
Medical negligence is any act or omission which falls below the standard of a reasonably competent doctor in that particular field of medicine. Often there are several acceptable ways of doing something and there may be no negligence if an alternative method is chosen, however where it can be demonstrated that the alternative method is illogical there can be a finding of medical negligence.
If you believe that your child's condition was caused by medical negligence and you would like free advice from a specialist cerebral palsy solicitor then just complete the report form or call us on 0800 014 7482 and one of our solicitors will be there to discuss your child's cerebral palsy claim.
