ERB’S PALSY

Did Your Child Suffer A Serious Birth Injury?

The birth of a child is supposed to be an exciting, if exhausting, process for a growing family. Unfortunately, complications could arise that threaten the health and safety of that infant, and one of the more dangerous birth injuries is Erb’s Palsy. This condition affects the network of nerves surrounding the shoulder, known as the brachial plexus, and can leave that area completely and permanently paralyzed. Approximately one to two out of every 1,000 children born in the United States suffer from this condition, and far too often it is the result of negligence from the medical professionals in charge of keeping you and your child healthy during pregnancy and throughout the delivery process.

Give our firm a call at (813) 336-3348 to discuss your case with an experienced attorney today.
