"We are only too aware of the distress
and emotional trauma that medical accidents
can cause for sufferers and their families"
Has your child been affected by Erb’s Palsy following a medical accident at birth? Maybe you should have undergone a caesarean section or the birth of the baby was not managed correctly by the midwife or doctor. If so, you may be able to claim compensation.
The level of settlement will depend on the prognosis for the short and long term, which in turn will depend on the severity of the condition diagnosed, how many nerves were affected and the level of any resulting disability.
At Head Injury UK we know that no amount of money can make up for the pain and suffering caused by medical accidents and birth injury such as Erb’s Palsy. But it can ensure the best treatment and rehabilitative therapy, making life in the future more comfortable with some measure of independence for the victim.
If neurosurgery or physiotherapy is needed, access to the best possible medical experts will be made possible with suitable compensation. The success of such surgery could have a notable effect on the victim’s future, which is why it pays to engage legal experts who will ensure the maximum level of compensation is made available for such treatment, and in a timely fashion.
To make things easier for you at such a difficult time, we give you a senior point of contact who you can call at any time. That person will direct your team of experienced solicitors who will liaise with their medical contacts and other relevant professionals to work out how much you ought to receive. They will then build a powerful argument aiming for the maximum level of compensation award and pursue this on your behalf.
