Erb’s palsy effects 1 in 1,000 babies born and is the result of an injury to the infant's upper arm at the “Erb's point” near that neck. This can occur before, during, and after delivery. Children with this defect will have a great many difficulties due to their inability to move their arm. Most children with Erb's palsy cannot move the entire arm and its appendages while others can move their fingers. Because Erb's palsy is so often the result of delivery trauma, including improper care, and is associated with expensive treatments many parents look for legal options, including an Erb's palsy settlement.
Causes of Erb's Palsy
Generally speaking, Erb’s palsy is the result of a difficult labor where the infant's body is either manipulated in order to be removed or when the infant's body passes through the canal in such a way that the child's head, neck, and shoulder force the arm in an opposite direction. Breech births and other "natural" but normal deliveries account for the large numbers of Erb's palsy and are not the fault of a physician. However, it is still an unfortunate occurrence where it is the result of inexperience on the part of the person assisting with the delivery or rushed care. When this is the case, where a doctor or health provider's improper or negligible treatment is the case of Erb's palsy, you do have legal options to help provide for medical care for your child.
