Middletown, NJ Erb’s Palsy Injury Attorney
Experienced Monmouth County Medical Malpractice Lawyers Who Fight Those Who Harmed Your Child
Erb’s palsy is an injury of the brachial plexus nerves during birth.

How Erb’s Palsy Affects Your Child
Damage to the brachial plexus nerve bundle can cause impairment in the upper and lower arm. In many cases, the nerves are permanently injured due to damage caused by the doctor during delivery. Efforts should be made to help improve the damage by using physical therapy, but results are often less than satisfactory if the damage is severe. Sometimes scarring forms around the healthy nerves, which can prevent full range of motion. The worst scenario involves a tear in the nerves, which can result in severe and permanent impairment and disfigurement.
This injury is avoidable through the correct manipulation of the child and the mother during birth. Proper evaluation of the mother’s pelvic proportionality, size and position of the fetus, as well as gestational diabetes, are essential to reduce the risk. If your baby has Erb’s palsy, your doctor or birthing team was probably negligent and should be held liable for the harm to your baby.
Our lawyers consult with medical experts to determine how and why the injury occurred. If the baby was injured because doctors or labor and delivery nurses failed to meet the standard of care and deviated or departed from the usual and customary procedures, we will help you hold them accountable. We look at the effect this injury will have on your child over their entire lifetime and the devastating impact it will have on your family. We use this information to pursue just compensation for you and hold those who injured your child accountable for their actions.
Unfortunately, there are some members of the New Jersey medical establishment who try to protect their own with excuses and bogus theories on why this “just happens.” We stand up for you, your child and your family by exposing these poor excuses for inappropriate and dangerous medical practices. By bringing your case, you may help another family and prevent their child from suffering the same fate in the future.
