How Erb´s Palsy Occurs
Erb´s palsy occurs when the brachial plexus muscle is extended during delivery. This happens if the neck or head of the newborn experiences too much pressure, often if the mother´s pelvic bone is preventing the baby´s shoulder from being dislodged. The medical staff present at the birth should be able to identify these types of circumstances and act to free the lodged shoulder of the baby in a safe manner.
Sometimes the baby will recover from this type of birth injury after three to six months. However, some will need surgical care and others may never acquire full use of the arm. The expense of physical therapy and countless medical appointments can cause considerable stress to a family and all due to a mistake made by the medical staff present at the birth.
The Most Common Causes of Erb´s Palsy Are:
- The baby´s shoulder being pulled during delivery
- The baby´s raised arms being pulled during a breech birth
- Pulling the baby´s neck and head to the side of the birth canal as the shoulder passes through
- Pulling the baby through the birth canal during a strenuous delivery
Our lawyers confer with medical experts to pinpoint if the injury was a result of medical malpractice. We will then work to secure compensation on your behalf and by doing so, ensure that the responsible parties are held to account.
