erb's palsy frequently asked questions

This will depend on whether you can prove it was negligent behaviour that caused the Erb’s palsy. Components of these types of cases can include the following: 
  • Loss of income (parent/patient); 
  • Cost of therapy, such as physio, hydrotherapy, and occupational therapy; 
  • Cost of additional surgery; 
  • Damages for the severity of the injury. 
It’s important that you seek legal advice early on so you can get an understanding of how successful your claim could be.  
If you’re a parent of a child who has Erb’s palsy, or if you’re an adult who has Erb’s palsy and is old enough to make a claim, you are eligible if the condition was caused by medical negligence during birth. If you choose to bring a claim, our Erb’s palsy lawyers will take a detailed account from you and proceed to obtain your medical records. We have a proven track record of helping clients who have suffered at the hands of negligence medical staff. 
The prognosis of Erb’s palsy depends on the severity of the injury. Some babies do recover, however children who have suffered more serious injuries may live with lifelong problems and suffer permanent problems with the affected arm.  In addition to a physical injury, the child may suffer with a psychological injury. If your child has been diagnosed with Erb’s palsy, the chances are that this occurred during the time of delivery and you may be eligible to claim compensation.
Like with most medical negligence claims, the time limit for these types of claims is three years from the date of diagnosis.
