Erbs-PalsyWhat is Erb’s Palsy? This is a type of disorder that occurs during birth. It results in weakness in the arm of a baby. In more severe cases it causes paralysis. The reason why so many people end up consulting a medical malpractice attorney about this disorder is because Erb’s Palsy is not created or does not occur in births that are conducted correctly– they only occur as a result of malpractice.

In other words, your baby is not born with this palsy. It is the result of human error through negligence. Doctors, midwives, and more have a duty of care to their patients. If you have been affected by Erb’s Palsy and your son or daughter is now dealing with issues from this disorder, consult an attorney who is experienced in medical malpractice.

Read on to find out more about this condition and lawsuit and whether you may be able to file a case based on medical malpractice and negligence. Don’t let them get away with what should never occur in a delivery room and get justice and compensation so that you aren’t paying the bills out of pocket for someone else’s mistake.

Erb’s Palsy has been the base of a number of suits regarding medical malpractice and the number isn’t going to slow down anytime soon. It is a stretch injury to the network of nerves (the brachial plexus) that branches out along with the nerves in the arm located near the neck an the nerves. The nerves control the movement of the hands and limbs and control feelings to arms, hands, and fingers. Erb’s Palsy impairs all of these.

What is perhaps so horrible about this disorder is that there is no call for it even to happen! Babies are not born with this, it is the result of doctors failing to deliver reasonable medical care and service. Worse still, the treatment takes month and your precious baby may require surgery to try and restore function that was affected, which is not a guaranteed success. This condition is very distressing to any baby’s parents and it can be tough to come to terms with the fact that your child could have had a totally normal and healthy start to life and instead is dealing with complications from human error from people who are supposed to know how to do their job.

No medical professional should be using the wrong medical equipment or pulling a baby with too much force. Even waiting too long to issue a c-section order may mean they are responsible. Having a baby that has been affected as a result of malpractice means that you are dealing with medical bills, stress, and sadness far beyond hat you expected. Between pain and suffering and the medical costs, you should have a case for negligence. The bills may continue to pile up for treatment, therapy, and even surgery.
