Birth Injuries: Erb’s Palsy and Cerebral Palsy
Erb’s palsy and cerebral palsy are two common types of birth injury. When new parents learn that their child has been born with Erb’s palsy or cerebral palsy, the immediate most critical questions are about health care in the hospital and at home.
In the later aftermath of such a traumatic birth, parents may begin to have questions about whether the palsy was unavoidable. Is it possible that a doctor’s or nurse’s error caused the palsy? Sadly, in some cases the answer is yes.
Because medical malpractice or negligence during the delivery process can sometimes cause cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy, we encourage parents of children born with these injuries to seek professional legal advice as soon as possible. It is important to understand your legal options to seek financial compensation on behalf of your child — and the earlier you do so the better.
