Ohio Birth Injury Litigation Lawyers

Erb's Palsy Legal Assistance in Cleveland Since 1981

Erb's palsy is a type of brachial plexus palsy and is often caused by medical malpractice. Doctors' failures that can lead to Erb's palsy include:

  • Failure to address shoulder dystocia when it occurs
  • Failure to anticipate problems caused by a mother's unusual or smaller-than-average pelvis
  • Failure to take into account a previous birth during which shoulder dystocia or brachial plexus palsy occurred
  • Failure to take into account a large baby, prior delivery of a large baby or gestational diabetes
  • Failure to effectively address prolonged or stalled labor and babies in breech positions

Is the muscle function or muscular development of your child's arm severely reduced or undeveloped? Does your child lack sensory perception from his or her shoulder to the elbow? Your child may have Erb's palsy. A medical malpractice lawsuit may help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve for your loss and to cover medical expenses.

What Are the Underlying Problems in Instances of Erb's Palsy?

Brachial plexus palsy and Erb's palsy occur when nerves running from the spinal cord to the shoulder, neck and arms are damaged. This collection of nerves, known as the brachial plexus or Erb's point, controls the movement and sensory feelings of the arm, hand and fingers. Specifically, Erb's palsy is a condition where there is damage to the upper group of the arm's nerves.
