As specialists in complex, high value, personal injury and medical negligence claims arising from birth injury and neonatal negligence, brain and spinal injuries, we have seen for ourselves the difficulties that families face when caring for a severely disabled child. It takes time, energy and dedication to support a child with neurological disability. The work involved is a labour of love that inevitably takes its toll on family life, work and leisure activities.
Where the disability has arisen from medical negligence or an accident caused by someone else, our expertly handled compensation claims can be life-changing, helping the devastated family restore order to their lives. A successful claim can pay for the additional care that arises from the child’s disability whilst giving much needed respite to the family carers. Once the financial hardship and worry is eased and the day to day nursing care, adapted accommodation, specialist equipment and therapy is taken care of, our clients can enjoy being a family again, in the knowledge that their disabled child’s specialist needs are met.
Boyes Turner’s clinical negligence and personal injury solicitors have over 20 years experience of handling cases of the utmost severity and complexity. Our expert legal team is one of the highest rated in the country. We are specialists at recovering maximum value damages awards which make a genuine difference to our clients’ lives. Our uniquely integrated, multi-disciplinary legal team supports our client families far beyond the process of making a claim. We handle the paperwork and administration associated with Court of Protection deputyship, protecting and enhancing the benefit of our clients’ compensation, maximising access to grants and benefits and securing essential special educational needs support at the right school for the child.
Many families caring for neurologically disabled children are not entitled to compensation. Only a few will have cause for a claim. Cerebral palsy can occur without negligent medical treatment. Neurological injury can follow infection, congenital and genetic disorders, brain tumours and strokes. Whether or not the circumstances of the injury give rise to compensation, disabled families need to know that they can turn to someone for ongoing support, information and counselling.
That’s why Boyes Turner are proud to be panel members of CEREBRA, a unique, national charity working to improve the lives of neurologically injured children. Since 2001, CEREBRA has offered a wide range of support services to families of children with neurological disability whilst increasing our knowledge of such conditions by sponsoring meaningful, targeted research. At Boyes Turner we support CEREBRA’s aims wholeheartedly and are proud to raise awareness of the charity’s invaluable work.
