Erb’s palsy and other brachial plexus injuries change the future for your child and your entire family. The costs of Erb’s palsy include the initial medical expenses as well as the long-term expenses and losses which will eventually become expenses and losses for your child. And, while Erb’s palsy is not life-threatening, your baby may require surgery which comes with risks of its own. In most cases, Erb’s palsy is the result of medical negligence, which means you may be able to recover substantial compensation.
When the doctors told you that your baby has Erb’s palsy, they probably did not tell you that it was the result of an injury caused by a medical mistake. Although not every single instance of Erb’s palsy is caused by preventable medical error, a substantial number of cases are the direct result of medical negligence. The Erb’s Palsy Lawyers Group is here to help parents like you determine if their child’s injury was preventable, and if so, to help you recover the maximum available compensation.
Erb’s palsy can mean permanent impairment for your child and carry considerable financial costs. Your immediate expenses and losses may include medical bills for surgery and other treatments and the time you have missed from work to care for your child. But that is just the beginning. Children with Erb’s palsy may need ongoing physical therapy and other medical care, as well as adaptive equipment. And when they grow up, they may find their own earning power is limited due to their disability.
Compensation for your child’s injury can give you access to the best treatments and therapies including new, more effective treatments that may be developed in the future. And it protects your child from incurring the financial costs associated with Erb’s palsy later in their life.

My name is Robert Goldwater, and I am a personal injury and medical malpractice attorney in Scottsdale, Arizona. In 2002, my wife gave birth to triplets. Unfortunately, they were born almost four months prematurely. They all suffered from numerous complications, including jaundice, respiratory distress, bradycardia, broncopulmonary dyslpasia, intraventricular hemorrhage (brain bleeds), retinopathy of prematurity, etc. In 2003, I founded the Erb’s Palsy Lawyers Group to provide helpful information for the families of children injured at birth. A substantial number of birth injuries are the direct result of substandard medical care. I wanted to provide a resource for parents to find out if their child’s birth injury was preventable, and if it was preventable, to connect them with one of the best birth injury attorneys in their area to help them obtain the maximum out-of-court settlement possible from the appropriate insurance company(ies).
