What is Erb’s Palsy?

Our medical malpractice lawyers have helped thousands of clients pursue justice and compensation when their children were injured by the negligence or misconduct of a medical professional.

One of the more common conditions our medical malpractice lawyers see is Erb’s Palsy.

The brachial plexus is the system of nerve bundles in your upper arm. This network sends signals from your spine to your shoulders, arms and hands.

Birth injuries to the brachial plexus are sadly common, and Erb’s Palsy is a frequently seen type of brachial plexus injury. It is a condition that results in partial or complete paralysis of the arm.

Erb’s Palsy is usually (though not always) caused at birth, and it’s often produced when the child is too large to be born naturally or is stressfully pulled during labor. Erb’s Palsy is a serious, permanent condition, and dealing with it is a lifetime matter.

The costs associated with Erb’s Palsy are substantial, and the medical malpractice lawyers at The Cochran Firm have experience helping parents recover compensation for these expenses.

If your child suffered Erb’s Palsy during childbirth and you need an experienced medical malpractice lawyer, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free consultation.
