One of the more prevalent birth injury claims that Bristol Personal Injury can support with, are cerebral palsy birth injuries. This occurs when a child suffers brain damage during birth. Parents of children who have a brain injury are set for some unique and demanding challenges, and it’s only right that they receive the legal support and compensation that they deserve.
