Managing Partner, John Hall who also heads up Tilly Bailey & Irvine's Personal Injury Team says:

" I would welcome any scheme that will speed up the process of providing compensation to cerebral palsy claimants. However, the devil is in the detail and I am concerned if the compensation awarded under this proposed scheme was significantly less than would be awarded by a Court through a civil claim. 

Whilst such a scheme could be potentially beneficial  in the short term I would be concerned that claimants would run out of funds in the long term leaving them far more reliant on  state funding."
