Last week saw Bobath Scotland organise a really successful third annual World Cerebral Palsy Day Conference, an event Digby Brown were delighted to support.

The event, held in Glasgow, brought together individuals, families and carers affected by Cerebral Palsy and over two dozen exhibitors who were on hand to offer information about the wide range of support, local groups and technology that is available in Scotland.

At the event, Bobath Scotland highlighted a new website -  www.cerebralpalsyscotland.org.uk – which is a Big Lottery Funded project to provide parents and families with the information they need on Cerebral Palsy as early as possible.

Cerebral Palsy is the most common cause of childhood disability but this event is the only one of its kind held in Scotland. Sue Grant, Digby Brown Partner and head of our Clinical Negligence Department, addressed attendees at the start of the Conference. Trish McFadden, Associate in the Clinical Negligence team, was one of the experts who gave presentations on legal and medical issues throughout the day.

Last month, Digby Brown’s Clinical Negligence team, led by Sue Grant, were top ranked in their field by Legal 500, a leading independent guide to the UK Legal profession.

Sue Grant: “We were honoured to be part of this years’ World Cerebral Palsy Day Conference. In our line of work, we come across too many cases where cerebral palsy was caused as the result of negligence and could have been prevented.

“We are committed to helping families find legal readdress where possible and secure compensation, helping familieswith current and future care needs.”

If you would like to talk to a specialist lawyer about your experience, we would encourage you, in the first instance, to please email: clinical.negligence@digbybrown.co.uk, giving as much detail as you can about your situation. Our clinical negligence team can then advise. This advice is, of course, free of charge.
