Shoulder Dystocia and Erb’s Palsy

Birth Injury Attorneys Assisting Children With Erb’s Palsy While the delivery of a child is never easy, certain deliveries are far harder than others. Obstetricians, however, are trained professionals who should be able to diagnose issues as they occur and take action to safely deliver the child. One of the most common complications in childbirth is shoulder dystocia. In cases of shoulder dystocia, the child’s shoulder is caught on the mother’s pubic bone. Because shoulder dystocia is such a common complication, there are numerous maneuvers that obstetricians can use to facilitate delivery without complication.Unfortunately, in some situations, obstetricians do not use these maneuvers and use excessive force when delivering the child. This excessive force can lead to stretching or even tearing the nerves in the child’s arm. This can lead to weakness and loss of motion in the child’s upper arm. This condition, known as Erb’s palsy, can lead to lifelong disability. If your child has Erb’s palsy, it is critical that you have a lawyer on your side who will build a strong case for damages.
