Understanding Cerebral and Erb’s Palsy

one in 278 children suffers from
cerebral palsy, an incurable brain and muscular condition that can have symptoms ranging
from minor clumsiness while running to severe symptoms that can include
seizures and the inability to walk. Doctors cannot always prevent cerebral
palsy, which can result from genetic disorders, infections, pregnancy
issues, or even premature or multiple births. But head injuries during
birth or even negligent prenatal care or diagnostic failure can also lead
to this condition.

About 90 percent of
brachial plexus palsy injuries, which include complete brachial plexus palsy,
Erb’s palsy, and Klumpke’s palsy, result from damage during delivery to a group of
nerves leading to the arms. These conditions can leave children with numbness
in the arm, reduced ability to use affected arms and hands, or even paralysis.
A common cause of Erb’s palsy involves the use of excessive traction on
the head of the baby during birth. Since vaginal deliveries of large birth
weight babies can often cause difficult births, doctors can potentially
reduce incidents of Erb’s palsy by recommending C-section delivery.

When to Retain Legal Support

When you learn your newborn faces anything from surgery to a lifetime of
disability from Erb’s or cerebral palsy, you face an overwhelming experience.
Forced to weigh their trust in the doctor against a future of potentially
extensive medical expenses, most families cannot determine whether or
not the condition of their child results from unavoidable circumstances
– or from
medical negligence. When you discuss your circumstances with our knowledgeable and compassionate
attorneys, we carefully listen to the details to help identify if negligence
may play a role. We provide an honest assessment of each situation, and
we make sure you clearly understand your options and what to expect if
you decide to move forward with a legal case.
