Erb’s Palsy Birth Injury Lawyers in San Antonio

Advocating for Infant Victims of Erb’s Palsy & Their Parents

Doctors must exercise extreme care and caution when delivering a baby. One risk during birth is the onset of Erb’s palsy. If you suspect your child’s Erb’s palsy is the result of medical malpractice, talk with our team at Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C. today.

We know that no amount of money can erase the suffering you and your child have experienced. However, we do believe that your medical team should be held accountable for their actions. The financial implications of Erb’s palsy can be far-reaching. Make sure the responsible party covers these expenses.

Call (210) 361-2997 to speak with a San Antonio birth injury attorney at our firm.

What Is Erb’s Palsy?

Erb’s palsy is a form of obstetric brachial plexus disorder. It can be caused by shoulder dystocia that occurs in the birth canal. Erb’s palsy can range from lack of feeling in the fingers to full paralysis of the arm and trunk. It is a nerve condition, caused by damage to the baby’s neck where the fifth and sixth cranial nerves merge.

Some cases of Erb's palsy can be corrected by surgery or physical therapy. However, these cures can be expensive. Filing a lawsuit against the responsible parties could make treatment more accessible for your baby.

How Medical Malpractice Can Lead to Erb’s Palsy

Any damage to the shoulder or neck during birth can result in Erb's palsy.

This may include:

  • Too much pulling on the shoulders as the baby passed through the birth canal
  • The use of forceps or vacuuming during delivery
  • A second-stage labor that is allowed to continue for too long
  • A baby that is too large to fit through the birth canal

Physicians should be aware of situations where Erb’s palsy is a risk and should order emergency C-sections when necessary to protect the baby from harm.
