Savannah Erb's Palsy Lawyer

Erb's palsy is a debilitating injury that can affect a child for the rest of their life. This diagnosis is particularly devastating when it is caused by medical mistakes during childbirth.

If your baby has an Erb's palsy birth injury, you could be entitled to compensation. The Nye Law Group's Savannah Erb's palsy lawyers have a successful track record of securing compensation for victims of medical negligence.

Your initial consultation is absolutely free and you do not pay us anything unless we secure you compensation.

What Causes Erb's Palsy? 

Erb's palsy is caused by damaged nerves in the brachial plexus, which controls muscles in the shoulders, arms and hands. Medical professionals could injure your baby's brachial plexus if they apply too much pressure to the head, neck or shoulders during a difficult delivery.

Medical professionals need to be aware of things that increase the likelihood of a difficult birth, including:

  • Excessive weight gain or diabetes in the mother
  • The small pelvis or body frame of the mother
  • A larger-than-average infant

Doctors and medical professionals should also be prepared for dangerous situations during the birthing process, including:

  • Breech births: A breech birth is when a baby is delivered feet-first instead of head-first, which can put intense pressure on the child's head, neck and shoulders. If necessary, doctors should do a C-section to prevent any birth injuries to the baby. 
  • Shoulder dystocia: This is when a baby's shoulder becomes lodged against the mother's pelvic bone, which makes delivery more difficult.
  • Vacuum or forceps delivery: Medical professionals might use these tools because of fetal distress, a prolonged delivery or shoulder dystocia. If doctors are not careful, they can damage the infant's skull, potentially causing nerve damage and an Erb's palsy birth injury.

The Effects of an Erb's Palsy Birth Injury

If you think that your child suffered an Erb's palsy birth injury, pay close attention and look for common symptoms of an injury, such as:

  • Full or partial paralysis in one arm
  • Weakness in the shoulder or arm
  • No feeling in the affected arm

Erb's palsy could appear to be minor at first, so you should have a doctor examine your baby for arm weakness. Doctors can use imaging tests, such as X-rays or an MRI, to find any nerve damage.

If your baby has Erb's palsy, there is a good chance it can be treated. But, these treatments could be costly and ongoing, and there are no guarantees that your child will get better or fully heal.

Contact the Savannah Erb's palsy lawyers at The Nye Law Group to see if you are entitled to compensation for your child's birth injury. If your child's birth injury was caused by mistakes during the birthing process, medical professionals should be held accountable. Our experienced attorneys have brought many negligent doctors to justice in medical malpractice cases.

Compensation from an Erb's Palsy Lawsuit

Caring for and treating a child with Erb's palsy can be very expensive. You have to cover ongoing doctor's visits, medical equipment and possibly even surgery to fix damaged nerves. Filing an Erb's palsy lawsuit could help you recover compensation for many of these expenses, including:

  • Medications
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Current or future surgeries
  • Mental anguish
  • Lost quality of life for the child

Our Savannah Erb's palsy lawyers want to fight for compensation to help you and your child adjust to life with limited use of one arm. While compensation cannot change what happened, it can help your family adjust.
