Ten-Year-Old’s Family Speak Out On Her Needs Being Met For The Rest Of Her Life
A North Lincolnshire girl with cerebral palsy is taking centre stage in a national law firm’s latest campaign.
Irwin Mitchell is showcasing the inspirational story of 10-year-old Haley Mason, from Crowle, in the company’s new television advert.
Haley lives with cerebral palsy, microcephaly, developmental delay and epilepsy following issues after birth which led to her spending two weeks in the baby care unit.
Her parents Abigail and Roger instructed medical negligence experts at Irwin Mitchell to investigate what happened and also help their daughter access the specialist therapies and rehabilitation she needs for the rest of her life.
Irwin Mitchell advert aired this month
The advert first aired on 13 September as part of a new campaign focusing on the emotional transitions that Irwin Mitchell clients go through. The family are now sharing Haley’s remarkable story of how she has defied the odds and ‘come such a long way’ since her diagnosis as part of World Cerebral Palsy Day on 6 October.

Mum of campaign star with cerebral palsy speaks out on her progress
Abigail said: “When Haley was diagnosed, it was such a tough time and we were really concerned about what the future held, but our legal team gave us so much hope. With their help, Haley has been getting the treatment she needs and really has grown stronger.
“Haley was about three-years-old when we first contacted Irwin Mitchell. At the time, we had been told she’d never be able to walk and would be completely paralysed on her right-hand side, but we’ve now got countless videos of her running around. She’s come such a long way.
“Roger and I run a farming business and Haley loves to be part of it. She always wants to help out with things like feeding the lambs and she uses her trike and buggy to get about outside.
“Everything we’ve done is for Haley and her future as it’s her life and we just want her to be the very best she can be. She’s absolutely thrilled to be a part of this new campaign and we’re all so proud to see her on the telly.
“Thanks to our legal team, Haley’s needs will be met for the rest of her life. For us, the dedicated support turned concern into hope, and that was the human touch that mattered.”
