Erb’s Palsy Shoulder Dystocia
Birth Injury Center.
Doctors deliver nearly five
thousand children a year who
suffer from Brachial Plexus
Palsy (Erbs Palsy). In 90
percent of Brachial Plexus
Palsy cases, traumatic stretching
of the infant’s plexus during the
birth process causes the palsy.
Estimates suggest that one to
two out of every one thousand
births result in a brachial plexus
injury. Of those, one out of every
ten represent an injury serious
enough to require some form
of treatment. If your child
has suffered from this type
of injury, medical malpractice
may be involved. Contact us here
to discuss your possible legal options.
