What is a Erb’s Palsy?
Erb’s palsy is a condition that is caused by nerve damage to a baby’s neck during childbirth. Erb’s palsy can happen when a baby’s shoulders become trapped in the birth canal. This can lead to complications with the umbilical cord, causing oxygen deprivation to the baby.
If excessive force is used during labour, this can cause severe nerve damage to the baby. Erb’s palsy is known to effect all major nerves that contribute to movement in the arms. Because of this, erb’s palsy can result in partial or complete paralysis of the baby’s arms.
It is possible for nerve damage to be repaired on some occasions. However in the most serious cases, the damage cannot be treated and is permanent.

Our erb’s palsy compensation claims solicitors have identified some common themes that can be found in these types of claim. The list is not exhaustive but does include the following factors:
Failure to perform a caesarean section when able to do so
Use of excessive force
Failure to follow proper procedures
