Spastic Cerebral Palsy

Claiming Compensation for Spastic Cerebral Palsy

This is the most common form of Cerebral Palsy, affecting approximately 70% of patients. This type of Cerebral palsy is characterised by stiff and permanently contracted muscles, usually the lower limbs. This can cause a person difficulty when walking. Spastic Cerebral Palsy consists of these categories:

  • Diplegia – where both arms and legs are affected
  • Hemiplegia – where either the right arm and leg are affected
  • Quadriplegia – where both arms and both legs are affected
  • Monoplegia – where just one arm or one leg is affected
  • Triplegia – where three arms or legs are affected

If your child or a relative is suffering from spastic cerebral palsy, with some legal assistance you may be able to claim significant compensation. The injury may have been caused by medical negligence.

Head Injury UK’s solicitors have a total of 70 years’ experience of successfully representing such. They’ve helped people with many kinds of acquired brain injury, including the results of stroke, subarachnoid haemorrhage and aneurism.

Our Aim: to Assist the Financing of as Normal and Comfortable a Life as Possible

It is only right and just that your child should be compensated for the suffering and life changes imposed by a brain injury that was caused by clinical negligence. But what most people want is the best possible life for their child thereafter. We therefore make the strongest case possible for maximum compensation, with index linked lifetime payments to cover the cost of on-going care where needed.

Delayed Surgery caused Cerebral Palsy

Jimmy developed an acute bowel condition soon after being born, but unfortunately his local hospital failed to transfer him urgently to the specialist hospital unit for immediate surgery. As a result he went on to suffer severe brain injury leaving him with spastic quadriplegia, visual impairment, learning difficulties and epilepsy. Liability has been admitted and we are continuing to work to finalise his claim.

What our clients say

We know that we have been extremely fortunate to have had such a consummate PI lawyer in Andy acting on our behalf but we have also been blessed by having had his support, trust, friendship and loyalty throughout. We cannot ever thank him enough.

The compensation Nicola has received has helped her move from a tiny council flat into a massive bungalow which has been specifically adapted. It has enabled her to have a better life.

If it was not for the help of my solicitor I don't know where I would have been today. He provided a great deal of emotional support and secured compensation at various stages from the insurance company to fund my treatment and allow me to live. He was there from start to finish.

Higgs & Sons acted for us for 5 years until our daughters claim for personal injuries was finally settled. Ian remains a trustee of our daughters trust fund and we now look upon him as a friend.
