As the parent of a child with Erb’s palsy, you can face considerable expenses. These expenses are usually ongoing and will become expenses for your child in adulthood. Even if your child has made a full physical recovery from the injury, the medical bills and your lost time from work can create a huge financial burden. Erb’s palsy is often the direct the result of medical negligence. You may be able to recover substantial compensation, but you will need the help of an experienced birth injury attorney. That is where the Erb’s Palsy Lawyers Group comes in.
Please be aware that each state has a “statute of limitations”, which strictly governs the time period you have to pursue a legal claim. These statutes vary considerably from state to state. If you don’t pursue legal action within the appropriate time period, both you and your child will forever lose out on your right to compensation.
An Erb’s palsy birth injury claim is a medical malpractice claim. Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional or facility performs below the accepted standard of care. Erb’s palsy and other brachial plexus injuries are usually preventable. If your child has suffered a brachial plexus injury, please talk to the Erb’s Palsy Lawyers Group right away to find out if you have a case.
