How much compensation could I receive for Erb’s Palsy injury?

Compensation claims for Erb’s Palsy not only reflect the pain and suffering experienced but also:

  • Provide a route to obtaining justice for the ordeal you have been through
  • Make failings in healthcare known to the public, thereby putting pressure on the NHS to improve standards
  • Get you answers and an apology

The compensation payment will depend on several factors:

  • How much pain and suffering your baby has had to endure
  • The impact of the delay and / or negligence on your child’s health and quality of life – including current and future care requirements, medical aids, home adaptations or other necessary assistance
  • Financial loses you have experienced due to your baby’s shoulder injury – including loss of earnings, medical expenses, travel expenses, and parking costs
  • Any future financial losses, e.g. the cost of constant care, future earnings, pensions etc

Compensation for Erb’s Palsy falls into two main categories:

  • General compensation (General Damages): this includes compensation for pain and suffering and the impact of the injury on lifestyle and quality of life – for you and your child.
  • Financial losses and expenses (Special Damages): these include the costs associated with private treatment, care support, travel expenses, other medical expenses, specialist equipment, and loss of income.
