Erb’s Palsy Lawyer in Cleveland

The Link Between Erb’s Palsy & Medical Malpractice

In a difficult delivery, a baby may sustain serious trauma to the brachial plexus nerves that extend through the neck and the shoulder, causing problems with movement and sensation in the arm, hand, and wrist on the affected side. This condition is called Erb’s palsy and may be linked to obstetrical malpractice. If it is, you have the right to civil justice.

The Lancione Law Firm can help you pursue financial compensation for your child’s lifelong care, from the medical professional or facility that is responsible for his or her condition. Led by a third-generation Cleveland birth injury attorney who has decades of experience with Erb’s palsy claims, our firm can build a strong case and push for a fair settlement or award on your behalf. Because we handle these cases on a contingent fee basis, you pay nothing unless we win.

There is no risk in seeking counsel from our caring and experienced professionals. For your free case review, call (440) 220-4439 or contact us online.

What Causes Erb’s Palsy?

Mismanagement of shoulder dystocia (a complication that occurs when a baby’s shoulder becomes lodged behind the mother’s pubic bone during delivery) is one potential cause of Erb’s palsy. Forceful or unnatural twisting or maneuvering of the baby may cause the brachial plexus nerves to stretch, tear, or even be torn completely from the spinal cord. If this or another instance of improper or inadequate care during labor or delivery caused harm to your child, The Lancione Law Firm is here to help you.

We can take on cases involving Erb’s palsy and other birth injuries linked to:

  • Mismanagement of shoulder dystocia or other complications
  • Vacuum extractor and forceps injuries
  • Failure to recommend a C-section when a baby is too large to safely pass through the birth canal

Call (440) 220-4439 today to find out how our Cleveland Erb’s palsy lawyer can make a difference for you and your child.
