Baltimore Erb’s Palsy Lawyer
Trusted Legal Counsel, Care, & Representation
Before, during, and immediately following delivery are some of the most crucial moments in a baby’s life. Anything and everything a medical professional does, or fails to do, during these moments can have lasting and permanent effects for you and your child, which is why it is so vital that doctors and nurses are especially careful when dealing with a pregnant woman and her newborn child.
Sadly, however, some instances of negligence occur, resulting in traumatic birth injuries such as Erb’s palsy. If this is the unfortunate case for your child, please reach out to our Baltimore birth injury attorneys at Brown & Barron, LLC at your earliest opportunity.
What is Erb's Palsy?
Erb’s palsy, also known as Erb-Duchenne palsy, is a form of brachial plexus or shoulder dystocia injury that typically involves permanent damage to nerves within the baby’s shoulder, arm, wrist, hand and fingers. Erb’s palsy injuries occur when a baby’s shoulder gets stuck on the mother’s pelvic bone during the course of labor and delivery. If not timely recognized by doctors and nurses, and treated properly, a baby’s nerves can be stretched and permanently damaged during delivery.
Erb’s palsy may occur as a result of medical malpractice or negligence, including the following:
- Nursing errors
- Prenatal errors
- Obstetrical complications
- Failure to perform a timely C-section
- Improper use of forceps or vacuum during delivery
- Failure to monitor fetal heart rate and condition
