Erb’s palsy is partial or permanent paralysis of the arm from damage to the nerves that connect the shoulder to the arm. This condition is often caused by medical negligence during childbirth when doctors improperly pull the baby from the birth canal.
In cases where Erb’s palsy is caused from a doctor’s mistake, your family may be entitled to compensation. Rushing childbirth is a form of medical negligence and the doctor responsible for the injury should also be held responsible for the lasting effects that Erb’s palsy will have on your child.
