Erb’s Palsy Lawyers Fighting For Justice In Birth Injury Cases

In every birth injury case, there are two main elements. First, there is a component of justice. We trust our doctors to be competent, prepared and ready to handle emergency situations appropriately. If you have been injured because of a doctor’s incompetence, you have suffered a grave injustice. Second, there are the practical considerations. With Erb’s palsy or other catastrophic birth injuries, you will have extra medical costs and the costs associated with accommodating your child’s disability.

For the sake of justice and the sake of your family, you deserve to be compensated.

The Detroit, Michigan, law firm of McKeen & Associates, P.C., can help you bring your negligent doctor to justice and obtain the compensation your family needs to get on with your life. We will help you obtain the highest level of financial compensation following a catastrophic injury.

In almost every case, Erb’s palsy can be avoided. With proper fetal monitoring, regulation of blood sugars during pregnancy and a timely cesarean delivery if necessary, there should be minimal risk of dystocia and Erb’s palsy. Contact us. We can help you obtain maximum compensation if your doctor’s negligence caused your child’s Erb’s palsy.

Erb’s palsy is closely related to shoulder dystocia. Direct injuries to the shoulder during delivery lead to nerve damage in the shoulder area, causing Erb’s palsy. A common scenario occurs when the child gets caught in the birth canal, and the doctor needs to use extra force to deliver the child. A doctor will often use vacuum extraction or forceps, which increases the likelihood of damage to the child’s shoulder.
