Our cases

We have settled ten cerebral palsy claims in the last 12 months alone and every case has required a different approach, due to the individual complexities of these types of cases. 

Where we are successful, we are able to recover compensation to assist the client and their family with care needs, therapy and equipment needs and ensure that the individual will continue to receive all the assistance they need for the remainder of their life.
