Erb’s palsy, or Erb-Duchenne palsy is a paralysis of the arm resulting from damage compromising the brachial plexus. During birth, a baby’s body can be compressed or stretched in ways that are potentially injurious to this sensitive area.
While many births can prove difficult, often these injuries can be avoided if proper care and attention is paid by the attending physician. If your baby suffers from Erb’s palsy you may be entitled to benefits that will cover your current and future medical expenses as well as for the pain and suffering caused by the doctor’s negligence.
