Erb’s Palsy is a medical condition that is a serious nerve injury to the brachial plexus fibers, also known as “Erb’s Point”. It affects the movement of a baby’s arms, shoulders, and hands. It is one of many birth injuries that can occur when a baby is improperly pulled out of the birth canal. It begins when a baby’s shoulder gets stuck in the birth canal, referred to as “shoulder dystocia”. When this occurs, the baby’s head is then pulled and the shoulders are stretched, resulting in very severe damage to the surrounding nerves that can result in permanent paralysis.

Erb’s Palsy, also known as Brachial Plexus Palsy, commonly occurs because a doctor misdiagnosis fails to diagnose or underestimates a mother or babies condition prior to birth. In many instances, the baby is much too large to fit properly through the birth canal or a mother’s pelvis is too small for a vaginal birth. This can then result in the baby becoming stuck, sometimes resulting in use of forceps or a vacuum extraction to attempt to ease the baby’s birth. Tragically, many cases involving Erb’s Palsy could have been avoided had the doctor or other medical professionals not been negligent in their actions. It is in your child’s best interest to contact an Erb’s palsy law firm to determine if you have an actionable claim for damages.
