Get Financial Support for a Child Affected by Erb's Palsy
Erb's palsy is one of many potential consequences of an injury during delivery. Unfortunately, when it comes to medical malpractice, the burden of proof almost always falls on an individual parent or parents. Because the defendant is usually an entire medical facility with vast resources, proving that an injury occurred as the result of malpractice is often met with considerable resistance.
Ensure that you have the same advantage by reaching out to an Erb's palsy attorney of Owens Moss, PLLC. Based out of Jackson, MS, we will exercise every resource so you can receive the compensation you and your child deserve.
Causes of Erb's Palsy
Also known as brachial plexus palsy, Erb's palsy is typically the result of damage to a group of spinal nerves between the neck and the collar bone. In most cases, this damage is a result of stretching the baby's neck too far during delivery. Children affected by Erb's palsy are often left with weakness, loss of motion, and limited sensation in the arm and hand.
A number of hospital errors can lead to this condition, including:
- Failure of a medical professional to recognize labor or delivery complications
- Excessive force to assist in delivery
- Mismanagement of shoulder dystocia
- Misuse of forceps or vacuum extraction
Because the average person is not aware of proper medical procedure, many patients do not realize that medically negligent behavior has even occurred. However, our firm is very familiar with the circumstances surrounding Erb's palsy injuries and we can help you determine whether you have a viable medical malpractice lawsuit.
