Our expert solicitors specialise in claims relating to brain injury, cerebral palsy and birth injuries. Examples of successful compensation awarded include more than £30 million for lifelong care for a boy starved of oxygen at birth and £13 million for an adult with a spinal injury due to substandard care.
