Nashville Erb's Palsy Lawyer
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
Has your child suffered Erb’s palsy due to one of the reasons above
