Erb's Palsy Claims

Erb's Palsy Birth Injury Attorney in Hawaii

The negligent actions of a doctor or nurse during the birth of a child can result in serious injuries to the baby, Erb's Palsy is one of many conditions that can result from a traumatic birth.

  • What It Is?
    Erb's palsy or "brachial plexus injury" is nerve damage and total or partial paralysis of the arm.
  • What Causes It
    Many babies born with Erb's palsy developed the condition because of traumatic birth. The infant's shoulders can have difficulty passing through the birth canal, pulling on and damaging the nerves in the process. Erb's palsy can also be the result of a breech (feet-first) delivery.
  • What's the Result?
    Babies born with Erb's palsy may suffer total or partial paralysis of the arm and neck. Common symptoms that trigger Erb's palsy diagnoses include: infant not moving arm or hand, little to no reflexes in the affected area, arm bent at the elbow and not moving, and poor grip in the hand on the affected side.
