UNDERSTANDING ERB’S PALSY & YOUR RIGHT TO SEEK JUSTICE

Erb’s palsy is a condition characterized by lack of muscle movement and control in the arm. It is caused by injury to the brachial plexus, the network of nerves responsible for sending signals to the shoulder, arm, hand, wrist, and fingers. Shoulder dystocia, a childbirth complication that occurs when the baby’s shoulder becomes lodged behind the mother’s pubic bone, is the leading cause of Erb’s palsy. Erb’s palsy may also be caused by improper use of forceps or vacuum extractors, C-section errors, and prolonged labor.

If your child was born showing signs of Erb’s palsy, it is important to consider whether malpractice may have been involved. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your child’s medical treatment and ongoing care to manage this serious condition. A Pittsburgh Erb’s palsy lawyer at Pribanic & Pribanic, LLC can talk to you about what occurred to determine whether you may be able to move forward with a claim.

SYMPTOMS OF ERB’S PALSY

About 1 to 2 out of every 1,000 infants in the U.S. are born with Erb’s palsy. Depending on the extent of injury to the brachial plexus, an infant or child with Erb’s palsy may experience varying symptoms.

The most common symptoms of Erb’s palsy include:

  • Arm weakness
  • Partial or total arm paralysis
  • Arm is bent at elbow and held against the body
  • Arm numbness
  • Decreased grip strength in affected hand

In mild cases of Erb’s palsy, most children will recover on their own with minimal medical involvement. When nerve damage is more severe, various treatment options may be used to help a child recover.

Erb’s palsy treatment may include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Surgery

In cases where doctors are responsible for causing brachial plexus injuries during labor or delivery, they should be held accountable. Our Pittsburgh Erb’s palsy attorneys have the resources and skill to accomplish this. These are complex cases, but our firm is up to the challenge. Our success and case results speak for themselves.
