Was Your Child Diagnosed With Erb's Palsy?
Erb’s palsy, almost always results from negligent handling of shoulder dystocia during labor and delivery, resulting in damage so severe that the baby will never have normal use of his or her arm.
If your child received brachial plexus injuries during childbirth and has lasting damage, contact our birth injury lawyers at The Lancione Law Firm by phone at 440-331-6100 or email to schedule a consultation.
With more than sixty years combined experience, the team at The Lancione Law Firm are well-prepared to investigate the circumstances behind a baby’s Erb’s palsy. Sometimes, the answer lies in negligent prenatal care — an OB/GYN may have failed to recognize and address risk factors such as gestational diabetes, excessive maternal, preeclampsia or fetal weight gain.
Consideration Of All The Risk Factors That Could Have Prevented Injury
Negligence in prenatal care can be compounded by childbirth complications caused by the size or position of the baby. An extra-large fetus is at higher risk of becoming stuck in the mother’s pelvis. The shoulder dystocia that occurs in the process can result in Erb’s palsy if the obstetrician or nurse midwife applies excessive downward pressure on the baby’s head while attempting to dislodge the stuck shoulder.
During labor, negligence may be indicated when an obstetrician has not responded appropriately to the challenges of an oversized baby, an obese mother, or other risk factors.
