What is Erb’s Palsy?
Erb’s palsy is a paralysis of the arm due to nerve damage. In some cases, the paralysis will subsist after a few months, but in other cases a child may suffer a permanent impairment. The cost for caring for a baby with Erb’s palsy can be financially overwhelming.
If you recently gave birth and your child now suffers from Erb’s palsy, there is a chance that your child’s condition was the result of medical negligence. Both before and during labor, babies can develop Erb’s palsy if doctors and nurses fail to properly respond to signs of fetal distress.
A baby may develop Erb’s palsy as a result of birth delivery errors. If a physician causes too much stress on a baby’s shoulders or pulls the baby’s head and neck simultaneously during delivery, a baby can develop Erb’s palsy.
