cerebral palsy claimsHere at Pryers solicitors in York we have recently been involved with a case involving a child with cerebral palsy.  Normally cerebral palsy claims are brought arising from oxygen starvation in the course of a birth but in this case the allegation was that because of the child’s father’s hereditary condition, the child should have had a full blood transfusion immediately after birth.  Failure to carry out the transfusion caused the child to develop jaundice and brain damage.  The case was eventually conceded by the Defendant NHS Trust and a settlement was agreed at a round table meeting which included a substantial payment in respect of the damages for the brain damage, future care, aids and equipment and loss of earnings.  Additionally by the time of the settlement the family had moved to new accommodation allowing a lift to be installed.
