Milly - Spastic cerebral palsy

Milly – Spastic Cerebral Palsy

Milly suffered severe spastic cerebral palsy as a result of negligent treatment by medical professionals during the final stages of her mother’s pregnancy.   Milly was showing signs of foetal distress which caused irreparable brain damage.  Milly was born severely disabled and dependent upon others for care.

Milly’s parents instructed Head Injury UK lawyer to investigate the treatment provided to Milly and whether the brain injury could have been avoided.

Very sadly, Milly died as a result of her brain injury, during the proceedings.  Despite the devastating news, Milly’s parents were determined to continue to fight the case on Milly’s behalf.  The expert cerebral palsy solicitor successfully obtained expert evidence to show the hospital had been negligent and Milly’s brain injury could have been avoided.

The family received £200,000.00 in compensation. This is obviously little comfort for the loss of a precious young daughter, but it did go some way to alleviating the financial expense to the family of the wonderful care they gave to their daughter during her short life. It helped them to go on with their lives retaining happy memories of the joy that their daughter provided.

Milly’s family received £200,000.

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.
