The passing of time is not likely to be an issue

As time does not run against children for the purposes of a claim, a claim for someone with cerebral palsy will not be time barred until their 21st birthday at the earliest so the passage of time is only very rarely a problem with such claims. However, in some situations we have found that problems can occur with the retention of medical records after 24 years. 

Whilst passage of time may not be an issue we do not recommend that you delay the start of an investigation, as this can be made more difficult as the years go by. It is preferable to involve a cerebral palsy claims specialist as early as possible.

Legal aid and no win, no fee options

The legal expense of bringing a cerebral palsy claim will generally be met by legal aid. Legal aid is available for children in their own right without reference to parental finances or income. Thus the vast majority of investigations are undertaken with the benefit of legal aid. Boyes Turner has a full legal aid franchise, easily enabling cases to be investigated this way. However, if your family have legal expenses insurance then that can be used instead.

If legal aid or legal expenses insurance is not available for any reason, at Boyes Turner we also offer no win, no fee arrangements which ensure that you pay no legal expenses at all - ever. Our no win, no fee scheme has no catches and we will ensure that the negligent party pays all of the costs if the case is won and our insurance scheme picks up all of the costs if the case is not won. Either way you and your child get 100% compensation. It really is that simple.

We have extensive experience of dealing with cerebral palsy claims. If you are considering making a claim and would like free advice or information from our expert solicitors then call us now on 0800 307 7620 or email cerebralpalsy@boyesturner.com.
