Erb's Palsy Claims
Erb’s Palsy compensation
Erb’s Palsy is a nerve injury that affects the movement of the shoulder, arm and hand. In most cases the condition can be spotted as the elbow does not bend properly and is held against the body.
The condition is predominantly caused by birth trauma, and if there has been negligence and poor care during the birth of your child, you have the right to compensation.
Early diagnosis and intervention is essential to try to reduce further damage and to treat the condition, and whilst recovery can occur naturally, some cases may require special treatment.
We are here to help you
We fully appreciate that no amount of money can compensate for when a child is born with a life-limiting condition.
We understand such cases can be emotionally challenging for parents and all those involved. That’s why you can rely on us for the right legal advice and support to help secure the much needed additional care, therapy and specialist equipment required.
Successful claims for Erb’s Palsy include:
- using excessive force during the delivery which results in birth injury
- failure to carry out a caesarean section when there are clear signs one is needed
- failure to estimate a baby’s weight correctly
In recognition of our expertise in this field, we have a contract with the Legal Aid Agency to offer legal aid to clients whose children have suffered a neurological injury including erbs palsy (also known as a brachial plexus paralysis or disorder) due to negligence during their birth.
