Erb’s Palsy is one of the most common birth injuries. In Erb’s Palsy, a specific nerve called the brachial plexus is damaged during delivery. It can cause weakness in the child’s arms and loss of sensation and movement in the arm affected. The impact of Erb’s Palsy varies and depends on the severity of the damage.
Sometimes it resolves independently, while other times, children may need rehab therapy or surgery. Erb’s Palsy most often occurs because of pulling on the infant’s neck that happens during delivery. For example, if a doctor uses forceps in delivery, it can increase the risk for Erb’s Palsy. But Erb’s Palsy can even happen in Cesarean deliveries.
While any infant can experience Erb’s Palsy, some are more at risk due to factors like a larger size. With early intervention from therapy and possible surgery, infants often do not suffer long-lasting effects. But if doctors fail to diagnose Erb’s Palsy, it can cause long-term complications.
Why Might I Choose to Pursue Legal Compensation?
Sometimes, Erb’s Palsy happens, and the blame doesn’t rest with anyone. Other times, it can be caused by the unsafe actions of doctors or other medical staff. In addition, doctors could even miss the diagnosis of Erb’s Palsy, although this is unlikely. A missed diagnosis of Erb’s Palsy can lead to long-term complications such as long-term nerve damage and problems with growth and movement.
In addition, therapies and other treatments for Erb’s Palsy can be time-consuming and costly. You may not have the money to cover these costs and might choose to pursue compensation from those responsible. You can consult with an attorney to see if you have a case.
