Following Erb’s Palsy Awareness Week, Pryers Solicitors is proud to be supporting the Erb’s Palsy Group (EPG) with a two-week fundraising programme which will see our colleagues participating in Halloween-themed activities such as a spooky quiz, a raffle, a terrifyingly delicious bake sale, a haunting murder mystery and, of course, fancy dress.
Erb’s Palsy is a condition that people are often unaware of until a friend or family member is directly affected by it. Also known as Brachial Plexus Palsy, it is a condition mainly caused by birth trauma affecting some or all of the 5 primary nerves that supply movement and feeling to an arm.
Although each injury is different, the consequences of living with reduced arm function can have a major impact on every aspect of daily living. Early diagnosis and treatment are the key to maximising recovery however, even with treatment, patients can be left with a permanent disability. Parents who reach out to us often aren’t aware of the long-term effect of Erb’s Palsy or how they can access support.
The Erb’s Palsy Group (EPG) has worked tirelessly over the years to promote research work and awareness of Erb’s Palsy and supporting families and individuals with the condition.
Here at Pryers we are experts in assisting families affected by Erb’s Palsy and, in the event that the injury was caused as a result of negligent management, we have the skills to guide you through the steps towards bringing a claim and finding support to get the best possible rehabilitation for your child.
