Claiming for Klumpke's palsy

Klumpke’s palsy is a rare complication of a difficult childbirth that doesn’t usually cause any lasting damage. But in some cases, it can leave babies affected with lifelong paralysis in the affected limb and other symptoms, including numbness or tingling. Any complications during childbirth can be distressing for both parents and the baby, especially if you realise that medical negligence was to blame for the issues that arose. 

Medical negligence doesn’t only have a physical impact; it can harm your confidence in those responsible for the care of your child too. If you’re looking for answers and want to hold those to blame for the negligence to account, Your Legal Friend is here to help. We work on behalf of those that have been victims of medical negligence, building their case to ensure the best possible chance of success.

We understand that a Klumpke’s palsy claim won’t undue the harm or stress that has been caused. However, it can help you move forward and access additional treatment or support that you may now need. In the majority of cases, children that have Klumpke’s palsy go on to make a full recovery but where this isn’t possible financial compensation can help you to make the adjustments that may now be necessary.

Our professional and friendly team are on hand to offer you the advice and expertise that you need after your baby’s been affected by medical negligence. We’ll work with you from the beginning of the process to ensure it’s as smooth and hassle free as possible right through to representing you in court if necessary.
