Erb’s palsy occurs when the brachial plexus, a nerve connecting the spinal cord to the arm and shoulder, is injured during a delivery where a physician places excessive stress on the child’s head, arm or shoulder. The potential for Erb’s palsy and injury to the brachial plexus that could cause other injuries is well-known and doctors have an obligation to act appropriately to avoid causing injury during delivery.
When physicians fail to provide care that meets the appropriate standards of care and your child was injured as a result, our firm has the skills, resources, and experience to help you effectively pursue the compensation you and your child deserve.
Overcoming the challenges of Erb’s palsy calls for access to the best medical care and the financial resources to help you afford that care.
