Erb’s Palsy: What Parents Should Know

Erb’s palsy is a birth defect that occurs when the nerves in a baby’s upper arm suffer damage. It can lead to permanent weakness or loss of motion in the arm. Some of the common symptoms include:

  • Lack of movement in the upper or lower arm or hand
  • Decreased grip strength in the affected hand
  • Arm bent at the elbow and held against the body
  • Partial or total paralysis of the arm

Understanding these symptoms is crucial in identifying the condition early and seeking appropriate treatment. Our experienced Erb’s palsy attorneys have helped many families grapple with the reality of Erb’s palsy and explore their options for filing a medical malpractice claim.

The Challenge Of Proving Medical Malpractice

Proving that medical negligence caused a birth injury such as Erb’s palsy is not simple. It involves demonstrating that the healthcare provider deviated from the standard of care expected, directly causing harm to your child. This is a complex process that requires thorough investigation and professional legal insights. Our team of personal injury lawyers is prepared to analyze your case, consult medical experts and gather the necessary evidence to support your claim. We aim to hold responsible parties accountable for the harm they wrought upon your baby during birth.
