New York Erb’s Palsy Lawyer

New York City, NY Erbs Palsy Lawyers and Attorneys Serving Clients
In All NYC Boroughs: Long Island, Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens

Erb's Palsy is also known as brachial plexus injuries and shoulder dystocia. This type of birth injury can cause harm to both the infant and the mother. This injury can be caused when the baby's shoulder becomes trapped during delivery. The shoulder can be trapped behind the pubic bone and inhibit the baby from being able to leave the birth canal.

In some cases the infant's head is able to be delivered, but the rest of the body remains trapped in the birth canal. If excessive force is applied while the shoulder is stuck, the nerve roots in the spinal cord which connect to the shoulder, arm and hand, can be bruised, damaged or torn out.
Compensation for Damages in Erb's Palsy Injuries

Children who have suffered this injury could be facing life with a limp or paralyzed arm, lack of muscle control in the arm or hand or a decrease of sensation in the arm or hand. In some cases, the arm cannot flourish and as the child grows, the affected arm has no movement at the elbow. Other symptoms could include Horner's Syndrome, in which the eyelid droops and the pupil is smaller which can be a symptom when the sympathetic nervous system is affected by the injury.

If your child is diagnosed with Erb's Palsy, you should contact an experienced New York medical malpractice attorney without delay. The Law Offices of Joseph M. Lichtenstein, PC specializes in medical malpractice litigation in all types of birth injury cases, including those in which a child is exhibiting the symptoms of Erb's palsy.

When medical malpractice has led to the condition, it is important that you act quickly and contact our firm so we can obtain and preserve all the supporting evidence and interview the attending medical personnel.
