What precisely is Erb's palsy?
Erb's palsy is caused by an injury during childbirth. It was named after the physician who described it for the first time in 1878. Erb's palsy is caused by a brachial plexus injury. The brachial plexus is a network of nerves running from the neck to the arms and hands. It is composed of numerous nerves that connect the upper extremity to the body's trunk. Erb's palsy is the most common brachial plexus injury, and it causes temporary or permanent paralysis. Brachial plexus injuries can occur during labor or surgery. When the baby's arm is delivered using forceps or vacuum extraction, or when the baby is delivered via C-section, an injury may occur.
Brachial plexus injuries are commonly caused by obstructed delivery. It is critical to recognize that Erb's palsy is a birth injury that can only be caused by medical malpractice. This means that the injury must have been caused by a healthcare provider's act or omission. If you were born with Erb's palsy and are wondering if you can file a medical malpractice claim, it is critical that you speak with a birth injury lawyer. Our team of experts at Hoosier Injury Attorneys Lawrence Indiana will answer any questions you may have about your case. We will give you unbiased and honest advice so you can make an informed decision about whether to pursue a medical malpractice claim.
Can you sue for Erb's palsy?
A lawsuit for Erb's palsy is certainly a possibility. The question is whether you should or should not. Erb's palsy is a birth injury caused by a baby's brachial plexus being out of place at birth. In other words, the nerves of the baby do not connect properly, resulting in temporary or permanent paralysis. The injury can happen during a vaginal or c-section birth. Erb's palsy is a relatively common birth injury that can affect any baby. Erb's palsy can be caused by a variety of factors, including medical malpractice, birth trauma, and obstetrical neglect.
Erb's palsy is difficult to diagnose because there are so many potential causes. If you believe you have been injured in a birth injury accident, you should immediately contact an experienced birth injury lawyer. You still have time to file a lawsuit for Erb's palsy. Indeed, the longer you wait to file a birth injury claim, the more difficult it will be to establish liability and collect compensation.
