Erbs Palsy Claims
An Erbs palsy case is caused when the nerves of a baby's neck are damaged during child birth. Normally Erbs Palsy arises when during labour the baby's shoulders get trapped in the birth cannel. This causes the baby's chest and umbilical chord to be compressed, which prevents the baby from being able to breath.
Prompt Action is Essential
Once medical staff become aware that the baby's shoulders are trapped immediate and prompt treatment is required. Any delay can cause serious complications but appropriate treatment is required to release the baby carefully. Occasionally medical staff will use excessive force in an attempt to try and free the baby. This can cause further nerve damage to the baby's neck. The extent of the nerve damage will determine the severity of the baby's condition. We appreciate that discovering your baby has Erbs Palsy is an incredibly stressful time for you as parents. Our expert Erbs Palsy claims Lawyers will advise you on all aspects of an Erbs Palsy case from both a legal and a treatment perspective.
Ongoing Treatment for Erbs Palsy Cases
Many babies who have been affected by birth injuries will require help and assistance for many years - sometimes even for the rest of their life. Many families do not have the resources to provide the very best care they would want for their baby. If you think your child's condition resulted from medical negligence your 1stclaim.co.uk Erbs Palsy Claims lawyer (solicitor) will help you to ensure you receive the compensation your baby deserves so they can be looked after both now and in the future.
How Will I Fund The Erbs Palsy Claim?
Most children will automatically qualify for legal aid as it is their own income that is assessed and not their parents or families. 1stClaims solicitors are authorised by the Legal Services Commission to undertake claims on a legally aided basis and will discuss this with you. Your erbs palsy lawyer will have many years experience in dealing with birth injury claims and will be sympathetic to what is clearly a very difficult time for you and your family. They will guide you through the legal procedure, make an application for legal aid on your behalf and try to make the situation as stress free as possible for you.
Is There A Time Limit?
Where clinical negligence involves a child you have three years from the date of the child's 18th birthday to bring a claim. Even if the treatment was therefore carried out many years ago, if your child is under 21 years of age they will still be able to bring a claim and you should contact a 1stClaims solicitor for a free initial interview to discuss this further.
