Cerebral Palsy Compensation -- Felix's Story from Leigh Day

In this film, our client Vici talks about her son Felix who suffers with Cerebral Palsy. Felix suffered severe brain damage due to complications during his birth, which the medical staff failed to spot. Felix showed signs of fetal distress and abnormalities during the delivery, which were not identified early enough and lead to Felix being diagnosed with cerebral palsy.

 

Vici sought legal action against the hospital for medical negligence and Olive Lewin, clinical negligence partner at Leigh Day represented her and the family. Felix's case was settled on a lump sum basis, along with annual payments for the rest of his life to help pay for his care and case management. The award has allowed them to purchase specialist equipment including an electric wheelchair and a suitably adapted home which has allowed the family to feel happier about Felix's future.
