What is Erb's Palsy, exactly?
Erb's palsy is a birth injury that affects an infant's arm and shoulder. It can result in either temporary or permanent paralysis. A lack of oxygen during birth is frequently to blame for the injury. The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that connects the spinal cord to the arms and shoulders. This nerve bundle is known as the brachial plexus. When a baby is born, there is a limited amount of time in which the baby must be delivered. This is known as the second stage of labor. During this stage, the infant's head may need to be rotated to deliver the shoulders.
If this occurs, pressure on the brachial plexus can result in damage. Erb's palsy is a birth injury that occurs when an infant's brachial plexus is compressed or squeezed during delivery. Erb's palsy can strike at any age, but it is most common in newborns. The injury causes arm and shoulder weakness because it affects the area between the neck and the shoulder. In some cases, this injury may be permanent. Erb's palsy is most commonly seen in babies born via cesarean section. In such cases, the surgeon may employ traction to aid in delivery. The baby's arm is pulled back to prevent him from falling to the ground.
Why do I require the services of an Erb's Palsy lawyer?
It is estimated that approximately 4,000 infants are born with Erb's palsy each year. This condition occurs when the brachial plexus is injured during delivery. The brachial plexus is a nerve network that controls arm movement. When the nerves that control the arm are severed or compressed during birth, Erb's palsy occurs. The condition can cause arm sensation and movement loss. It can also result in paralysis. Erb's palsy is caused by a number of factors, including delivery complications, macrosomia, birth trauma, and fetal distress.
The severity of the injury is influenced by a number of factors, including the baby's position at birth, the amount of force used to deliver the baby, and whether the baby is in the breech position.
