Let Medical Malpractice Attorney and Registered Nurse Lynn Foley Handle Your Child’s Erbs Palsy Case
Lynn Foley, a Registered Nurse with professional experience in the medical and legal fields has special expertise in handling birth injury claims including cases involving Erbs palsy.
Erbs Palsy can occur when the delivery room physician uses too much downward force when delivering the baby’s shoulder. The injury likely results from stretching or tearing of the nerve roots in the brachial plexus (a network of spinal nerves supplying the arm, forearm and hand).
What is Erbs Palsy
Erbs palsy can result even when the delivery does not appear to be difficult but it is more likely to occur when there is shoulder dystocia, meaning the shoulder is stuck or lodged in the birth canal at the time of delivery.
If Erbs palsy involves the upper spinal nerves, the baby will exhibit paralysis of the shoulder and arm muscles resulting in a hanging upper arm that may extend to the elbow. If the lower spinal nerves are also involved, the baby will have paralysis of the hand as well.
If your baby has paralysis of the shoulder, arm or hand, Erbs palsy may be the correct diagnosis. An injury during the delivery process may be the cause of the Erbs palsy.

In fact, many parents feel that there is no way to know what caused Erbs palsy in their child and are unaware that there are ways to search for answers, such as hiring an attorney like Lynn Foley who specializes in handling Erbs palsy cases. The truth is that Erbs palsy is most often the result of a medical negligence during delivery of the child.
Doctors have an obligation to provide adequate care during all stages of a woman’s pregnancy, including the delivery period. Unfortunately, doctors are capable of error or negligence when delivering a baby.
