Erb's Palsy and Medical Negligence
Erb's palsy is a birth injury that occurs when damage is caused to the brachial plexus (a bundle of nerves beneath the shoulder) during birth. While some cases of Erb's palsy are caused by complications during birth and are unavoidable, some are the result of medical malpractice.
If you think your child may have been injured due to negligent medical care, the attorneys at Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., are here to help. We understand the hardships facing children with Erb's palsy and are prepared to help you pursue fair and just compensation.

Erb's palsy is characterized by loss of function of the arm or shoulder. In most cases, the loss of function is partial, but in some it is total.
Conditions in which brachial plexus injuries and Erb's palsy are more likely to occur include births involving large babies (more than eight pounds), prolonged labor and mothers with abnormally small pelvises.
