Children diagnosed with cerebral palsy will often face a lifetime of consequences. Numerous mistakes during pregnancy, labor and delivery can cause cerebral palsy, from failing to maintain the infant’s oxygen supply to making improper use of forceps and vacuum extractors.
Erb’s palsy is a birth injury that results from damage to the brachial plexus. Located in the shoulder, the brachial plexus is a bundle of nerves connecting the upper spinal cord to the arm. While Erb’s palsy is often treatable, many children will suffer permanent effects, and the costs of treating and managing the symptoms of Erb’s palsy can be substantial.
While use of forceps during delivery can be appropriate under certain circumstances, forceps deliveries carry risks for a number of potentially-serious birth injuries. If your child suffered a brachial plexus injury, head injury or any other serious injury during a forceps delivery, your family may be entitled to significant financial compensation.
