Erb's Palsy & Shoulder Dystocia Claims for Tennessee Residents

If your child suffers shoulder dystocia/Erb's palsy, his or her ability to live a normal life is greatly hindered by potential pain and severe limitations on movement. Erb's palsy is paralysis or severe limitation to mobility in the arms resulting from nerve damage to the area during birth.

In some cases, the baby's size, the length of labor, or the health of the mother are the sole causes of this injury. In other cases, Erb's palsy is a direct result of doctor negligence. Although each situation of shoulder dystocia must be independently evaluated, those cases caused by medical malpractice are particularly tragic for the children and the parents involved. The good news is that you are not alone during this time—Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge is here to stand up for your right to compensation and justice.

Causes of Erb's Palsy

Doctors and medical professionals are required to provide reasonable care that meets certain standards. When a nurse, doctor, or other medical specialist fails to act in a reasonable manner or is negligent in their services, it can result in serious injuries—especially during the childbirth process. Erb’s palsy is one of the many birth injuries that can occur due to negligence.

Some of the main causes of Erb's palsy include:

  • Excessive pulling of the baby from the womb during birth
  • Improper use of forceps or vacuum extraction methods
  • Lodging of an oversized baby in the birth canal
