Erb’s Palsy is also known as Brachial Plexus Paralysis and is generally caused by trauma at birth. In some cases this can lead to a birth injury claim or more specifically an Erb’s Palsy claim. Erb’s Palsy is a condition that restricts movement and feeling in an arm. There are 5 primary nerves that supply movement to the arm, and damage to any or all of those nerves can cause paralysis or the loss of feeling in the arm.
The condition can be caused during a natural birth where there is excessive pulling on the baby’s shoulders where delivery is head first, or by pressure on the baby’s arms where the delivery is feet first. It can also be caused when a baby has broad shoulders, and one of the shoulders is held back by the mother’s pubic bone during the delivery process. In some cases you will be able to receive Erb’s Palsy compensation.
