Was Your Child Was Diagnosed With Erb's Palsy?

Minnesota Erb’s Palsy Lawyers

Proving the Link Between Erb’s Palsy & Substandard Care

Erb’s palsy is a condition that affects sensation and muscle function in the shoulder and arm. It occurs when the upper portion of the brachial plexus nerves sustain damage during childbirth. These nerves extend from the spinal cord through the shoulder and into the arm, and if they are damaged, severed, or pulled from the spinal cord, an infant may lose feeling and muscle control in the affected area.

If your child has been exhibiting symptoms of Erb’s palsy or has already been diagnosed with this condition, our Minnesota birth injury lawyers are here for you. At Janet, Janet & Suggs, we represent clients across the country who have been affected by negligence and wrongdoing during pregnancy, labor, and delivery. This is a key part of our legal practice, and we are passionate about helping children and their families get the financial compensation they need. For over three decades, we have been fighting for children who have suffered birth injuries. We have gained national recognition and have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients in this particular field.

To learn more, call (651) 243-2972. We can pursue fair compensation for Erb’s palsy treatment and ongoing or lifelong care.

Do You Have a Birth Injury Claim?

Not all cases of Erb’s palsy are associated with obstetrical malpractice, but when they are, it is important to hold negligent medical professionals accountable. As Minnesota Erb’s palsy attorneys, we know what to look for in signs of mismanaged deliveries or negligence during childbirth.

The following are examples of how Erb’s palsy may be associated with obstetrical negligence:

  • Mismanagement of shoulder dystocia, which occurs when the baby’s shoulder is stuck behind the mother’s pubic bone.
  • Failure to recommend a C-section in a pregnancy where the baby is too large to safely travel through the mother’s birth canal (often linked to maternal diabetes).
  • Improper use of vacuum or forceps during delivery, if the baby’s head and neck are twisted or stretched in a forceful or unnatural way.
  • Mismanagement of breech delivery or face-first presentation.
