How To Prove Damages In An Erb's Palsy Case?

Posted by Frank Spector | Nov 26, 2023 | 0 Comments

When a child's arm has been injured at birth, the condition is called Erb's Palsy or brachial plexus palsy. When the injury is permanent, the child will not be able to use the arm normally. The things that we do many times per day with out arms and hands are often taken for granted. Think about:

  • Brushing hair
  • Shampooing head
  • Buttoning clothes
  • Tying Shoes
  • Cooking
  • Cleaning
  • Driving
  • Turning a key
  • Turning a doorknob
  • Lifting groceries
  • Carrying a child

For someone injured with Erb's Palsy, doing these daily activities can be impossible or challenging. There may be certain jobs that will be unable to performed. There is also embarrassment associated with having one arm shorter than the other.

At Frank Spector Law, I have experience in putting dollar values to these limitations. In some cases, occupational and physical therapy may be needed. Special equipment like custom kitchen utensils, steering wheel modifications, devices to help with dressing and bathing are just some of what may be asked for in compensation.

There are also significant non-economic damages for embarrassment and mental stress with having to live with a life long injury,
