Erb’s palsy results from nerve damage that can impair a baby’s arm, shoulder or hand. The most common cause of this is excessive force during removal from the birth canal. If a doctor is negligent in detecting risk factors or otherwise fails to do his or her job, he or she can be held accountable. It is important to realize that Erb’s palsy is almost always preventable through tested and codified maneuvers that alleviate shoulder dystocia — the issue that arises if a baby’s shoulder becomes stuck.
If your baby suffered Erb’s palsy due to what you believe was negligent conduct on behalf of the staff, it is important that you understand all details and to what you may be compensated. Having worked on these issues for more than a quarter century, our lawyers are here for you.
