Erb’s Palsy is a form of Obstetric Brachial Plexus Injury (or OBPI) that can arise from shoulder dystocia during birth.

The injury can result in partial or complete paralysis of the baby’s arm and hand.

Not all Erb’s Palsy or OBPI cases are due to a medical mistake but where the problem has been caused by an avoidable error during delivery then you and your baby may be entitled to pursue a compensation claim.

Our medical negligence team are experienced in dealing with Erb’s Palsy and OBPI claims. We can access the best medical experts whose evidence is so important in these cases. We will also ensure that the compensation package meets the financial needs of you, your baby and your family, both now and in the future. This will include:

  • pain and suffering
  • care costs
  • medical treatment
  • education needs
  • accommodation costs
  • loss of earnings
