When considering making a claim for Erb’s Palsy – or Obstetric Brachial Plexus Palsy – compensation, it is important that you seek advice from a specialist Erb’s Palsy solicitor with experience in these complex claims.
Erb’s Palsy is a condition that can cause long-term problems for your baby, and your family. Ongoing care, medical assistance and costs can mean that a claim for compensation could be your best course of action.
Where it can be proved that negligence has caused your baby to develop Erb’s Palsy, you should speak to a specialist birth injury solicitor, who can talk you through the claim process.
Erb’s Palsy is a type of birth injury that can be caused by negligence from healthcare professionals.
There are a number of ways in which a doctor, midwife, nurse or other medical staff supervising or assisting your child’s birth may be negligent and be deemed to have caused your child to suffer Erb’s Palsy.
Commonly, circumstances leading to Erb’s Palsy include:
If you have experienced one or more of these scenarios, you may want to consider speaking with an Erb’s Palsy Lawyer, about seeking compensation.
In the most serious cases of Erb’s Palsy – where there will be only a partial recovery or none at all – your child may require ongoing professional care throughout their life. It may also be that their earning potential is limited due to their disability. These circumstances can be factored into a claim for Erb’s Palsy compensation in order to provide financial security and the peace of mind that your child will always receive the professional care that they need.

Erb’s palsy occurs when a baby sustains serious nerve damage during birth. When the baby’s shoulders become stuck following the emergence of their head, improper application of force by medical staff can result in bruising, tearing or twisting of the brachial plexus.
