We pursued a cerebral palsy negligence claim for Rose who has cerebral palsy because she was starved of oxygen at birth. We secured £1.5 million compensation for Rose which will ensure that all her needs are taken care of throughout her life.


Rose was born on 2 October 1994. During the labour there was an abnormal fetal heart reading. This should have led to an expedited delivery.

As a result of the delay in her delivery and the failure to expedite, Rose was deprived of oxygen.

She suffers from severe spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, cortical blindness and marked developmental delay because of this and requires care and special education.

We were instructed to act on Rose's behalf in a cerebral palsy compensation claim.

We agreed a settlement of £1.5m plus costs, with the NHS Trust also giving an indemnity of up to £500,000 in relation to future education. This means that we can seek further compensation of up to half a million pounds in future if the compensation for education was not enough.
