Cerebral Palsy and Erb's Palsy Compensation
Cerebral Palsy is a generic term relating to a set of neurological (involving the brain and nervous system) conditions that affect a child’s movement and coordination. It is caused by damage to the brain which can occur before, during or soon after birth.
The symptoms of cerebral palsy vary widely. Some children have problems walking while others are profoundly disabled and require lifelong care. Some of the symptoms may be quite subtle.
Erb’s Palsy is also referred to as Obstetric Brachial plexus Injury (OBI). The condition is usually caused by trauma during birth. It will either affect one or all of the five primary nerves that provide feeling and movement in the arm.
The paralysis can be fractional or complete with nerve damage ranging from bruising to tearing. Some babies are lucky enough to recover on their own from the symptoms. Others will require professional intervention and their injury may be permanent.
If your child has suffered either of these two conditions, contact the Glanvilles Damant clinical negligence team. Working on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis here on the Isle of Wight, we can instruct experts to consider all aspects of your case and give you all the help you need to make a claim for compensation.
