Erb's Palsy

Claiming Compensation for an Erb’s Palsy Sufferer

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.

Our Aim: To Remove the Burdens

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.

What our clients say

We know that we have been extremely fortunate to have had such a consummate PI lawyer in Andy acting on our behalf but we have also been blessed by having had his support, trust, friendship and loyalty throughout. We cannot ever thank him enough.

The compensation Nicola has received has helped her move from a tiny council flat into a massive bungalow which has been specifically adapted. It has enabled her to have a better life.

If it was not for the help of my solicitor I don't know where I would have been today. He provided a great deal of emotional support and secured compensation at various stages from the insurance company to fund my treatment and allow me to live. He was there from start to finish.

Higgs & Sons acted for us for 5 years until our daughters claim for personal injuries was finally settled. Ian remains a trustee of our daughters trust fund and we now look upon him as a friend.
