Erbs Palsy

Erb’s Palsy Attorney in Michigan

Detroit Birth Injury Lawyer

Erb’s palsy is a birth injury, typically caused during delivery, which occurs when the nerves in a child’s brachial plexus are damaged. This is a serious condition which can lead to the extreme weakness or paralysis of a baby’s arms or hands. While this condition may be treatable, in severe cases, the damage can be permanent. If your child suffers from Erb’s palsy as a result of medical malpractice, you may be able to hold medical providers legally responsible for their actions.

Causes of Erb’s Palsy

When Erb’s palsy results during labor, the injury can be caused by mishandling of an infant by a physician during delivery. If a doctor pulls an infant or applies pressure in such a way that causes excessive stretching to the neck or shoulder area, the brachial plexus nerves can be injured. Numerous factors can lead to increased risk for Erb’s palsy including the use of forceps or tools during delivery as well as an infant’s weight and delivery position.

Symptoms of Erb’s palsy can include:

  • Total paralysis of the arm or hand
  • Limited grip strength
  • Numbness or loss of motor function
  • Hindered muscular and circulatory development
