Erbs Palsy

Erb’s palsy is a type of brachial plexus injury. The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that connect the spinal cord, neck, shoulder, arms, hands, and fingers. Any injury to the brachial plexus can cause temporary or permanent problems relating to the upper limbs.

Erb’s palsy occurs when damage or injury to the brachial plexus results in nerve damage, weakness, and loss of motion or motor control in the shoulder, arm, hand, or fingers.  If your newborn or infant is suffering these symptoms, contact Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA now to discuss your rights and claims.

Birth Trauma and Erb’s Palsy

Erb’s palsy frequently results from birth trauma or birth complications.  When an infant’s neck is stretched, turned, or experiences pressure during delivery, damage to the brachial plexus can occur.

Common medical mistakes that can cause Erb’s palsy include:

  • Rough or Unnatural Pulling During Delivery
  • Failure to Identify Breech Position
  • Failure to Identify Contributing Factors, including Infant and Pelvic Size Concerns
  • Physical Mishandling or Applying Excessive Force

Common Symptoms and Warning Signs of Erb’s palsy include:

  • Inability to Move Arm
  • Unnatural Arm Position
  • Weak Grip or Arm Strength
  • Poor Muscular Development
  • Pain or Loss of Feeling

Erb’s palsy can cause lasting damage and require expensive treatment and physical therapy.  Physicians and nursing staff responsible for causing your newborn child injury must be held accountable.

If your child suffered brachial plexus injury or Erb’s palsy as the result of a birth injury, you and your family may be entitled to compensation.  Call or email our Ohio birth trauma lawyers now for your free consultation and let us fight for you.
