Erb’s Palsy Lawyers
Erb’s palsy is a paralysis of the arm that can be the result of any number of traumas which cause damage to the upper nerves of the arm. This paralysis can cause an afflicted person to have a very limited range of motion. Unfortunately, newborns are particularly susceptible to developing Erb’s Palsy because of the damage that can be done during birth. When a medical practitioner fails to act responsibly or exercise proper care and causes a baby to develop Erb’s Palsy as a result, they can be held legally and financially responsible for this serious and preventable injury.
At The Driscoll Firm, each Erb’s Palsy lawyer believes that if your child has been injured by a negligent medical professional, resulting in Erb’s Palsy, you should not be forced to deal with the emotional and financial effects of this condition on your own.

Medical Malpractice and Erb’s Palsy
When a medical practitioner does not act appropriately or makes an error during delivery, the repercussions can be devastating, particularly as Erb’s Palsy can cause not only limited arm functionality and movement, but also stunted growth. Unfortunately, this damage can occur in a number of ways due to trauma to the nerves during birth, including:
- Pulling the baby’s head at the wrong time
- Inappropriate or excessive use of certain medical tools
- Excessive pulling on the shoulders
