Cerebral palsy claims solicitors - Declan's story

At Stephensons we specialise in helping families and individuals affected by cerebral palsy to claim the compensation they deserve - families like Declan’s.

In the video below, Declan’s mum and dad, Julie and Ian, describe the anguish they experienced after discovering that their son had been diagnosed with evolving cerebral palsy due to clinical negligence and the effects his condition has had on Declan as well as their whole family.

Declan’s story is one of many examples of the work our clinical negligence solicitors do. Although Declan’s condition will never get any worse due to the fact cerebral palsy is a non-progressive disorder, he will still need ongoing care for the rest of his life.

Our cerebral palsy compensation claim solicitors fought extremely hard to obtain compensation for Declan’s family; compensation that allowed Declan and his parents to make changes to their home and create a positive atmosphere which would help Declan to progress.

Our expert clinical negligence solicitors focussed on providing Declan’s family with the advice and representation they needed to ensure a positive outcome for their son. Our solicitors were able to ensure Declan’s family were getting all the financial support and support from the appropriate social services they needed. In addition, the compensation they received allowed the family to create a bespoke sensory room for Declan.

Our solicitors are sensitive to the needs of cerebral palsy sufferers and their families and understand that every case will vary. With this in mind we tailor our services to cater for each individual and approach each cerebral palsy and clinical negligence compensation claim differently.

The birth of a child should be an extremely joyous and unforgettable occasion for the parents, but unfortunately if something goes wrong during pregnancy or labour, this can be a devastating blow to all involved. If either the mother or the child are affected due to clinical negligence you could be entitled to claim compensation for a birth injury.

Our solicitors specialise in all aspects of birth injury compensation claims and can help you claim the compensation you deserve in the event a medical professional has failed to provide you with the appropriate level of care.

Our areas of specialism are

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb's palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Failure to diagnose neonatal conditions
  • Negligence during pregnancy
  • Negligence during birth
  • Still births
