Cerebral Palsy is the term used to cover a number of types of neurological conditions that effect a person's mental and physical development. The condition can be debilitating for the sufferer and can completely change the lives of those who are responsible for their care.

Cerebral Palsy is one of the most common birth injuries and effects approximately 1,800 babies born in the UK each year. It is usually caused when the baby is starved of oxygen at birth, however, it can also be caused before birth where, for example, there has been an infection in the early stages of pregnancy or a bleed in the baby's brain.

Erb's Palsy, also known as brachial plexus paralysis, is a condition which affects the nerves which connect the spinal cord to the shoulder and arm. The condition is usually caused during a baby's birth, often when too much force is applied by medical staff as the child is delivered.

The level of resulting paralysis from Erb's Palsy can vary, with different levels of disability resulting for the victim. The condition can manifest itself in loss of sensation to the arm and wasting away of the muscles, with a resulting impact on mobility. The condition can sometimes also cause stunted growth in the arms and hands.

If you or your child has been affected by Cerebral or Erbs palsy, you may want to seek specialist legal advice. Call our medical negligence team on 08000 93 00 94.
