As specialists in high value, complex medical negligence and personal injury claims arising from birth injuries and neonatal negligence, acquired and traumatic brain and spinal injury, we understand the difficulties faced by families struggling to care for a severely disabled child. The daily work of sustaining and supporting a child with neurological disabilities can be a full time job, leaving little time for anything else. Family life, working life, social life and much more can suffer in the daily struggle to care for that one very challenging and yet very special life.
Where the injury has been caused by medical negligence or an accident that was someone else’s fault, our successful, expertly managed compensation claims change lives, bringing order to the devastation that follows a catastrophe, assistance to those in need of care and relief to those in need of respite. Once the burden of financial worry is lifted and the daily administration associated with carers, housing, specialist equipment and therapies is managed, our clients have space to focus on being a family again, knowing that their disabled child’s additional needs are met.
Boyes Turner’s clinical negligence and personal injury lawyers are among the highest rated teams in the country, led by lawyers with over 20 years experience of handling cases of the utmost severity and complexity. We are experts at achieving high value compensation awards and making a difference to the lives of our clients. Our unique, integrated, multi-disciplinary approach also enables us to help with other important concerns, such as securing the right education for children with special educational needs, and managing, protecting and maximising the benefit of their compensation award.
However, we recognise that the majority of families caring for neurologically disabled children will not have the benefit of compensation from a legal claim. Cerebral palsy can arise without negligent medical care, as can neurological injury from infections, genetic and congenital disorders, strokes and tumours. Even in cases where liability does give rise to a claim, families need someone to turn to for ongoing support, information and counselling.
That’s why Boyes Turner are excited to announce that we have joined the panel of CEREBRA, a unique, national charity which aims to improve the lives of children with neurological conditions, through research, information and support. Set up in 2001, CEREBRA offers a wide range of support services to families of children with neurological disability whilst working to further our knowledge of these conditions by supporting meaningful, targeted research. Boyes Turner support CEREBRA’s aims wholeheartedly and recognise the charity’s invaluable work.
