What Is Erb’s Palsy?
Erb's palsy, also commonly referred to as brachial palsy or brachial
plexus injury in newborns, is a
birth injury that causes a loss of movement or weakness in the arm. It is caused by
damage to the shoulder and the nerves around the shoulder, called the
brachial plexus, during childbirth. Damage to the shoulder, including
the injury of shoulder dystocia, can lead to Erb's palsy for a newborn child.
Depending on the nature of the injury, your child may need to undergo extensive
rehabilitation for months or years, or possibly even require surgery.
Having to go through physical therapy and surgery for a young child can
be difficult for both the child and the entire family. Furthermore, the
financial turmoil that this type of injury will take on a family can be
overwhelming. If your child has sustained these injuries due to a negligent
doctor or hospital staff, immediately talk to the Phoenix personal injury
Knowles Law Firm, PLC.
