Helping Parents Obtain Justice for Their Children

Erb's palsy is a form of nerve damage and paralysis, typically caused by birth trauma, that can have long-term consequences for a child's physical development. Medical professionals have a responsibility to take reasonable measures to avoid causing children to develop this condition.

At the law firm of DeLuca & Weizenbaum in Providence, our experienced Rhode Island Erb's palsy lawyers help parents pursue fair compensation for children who have developed Erb's palsy due to birth injuries. To schedule a free consultation, contact us today.

Understanding How Malpractice Causes Erb's Palsy

Erb's palsy is most frequently the result of shoulder dystocia, a trauma that occurs during childbirth when there is difficulty delivering the shoulders. OB-GYNs and other childbirth professionals are trained to see the warning signs of this delivery complication.

A doctor who fails to take the appropriate steps to avoid or respond to shoulder dystocia during childbirth can be held legally accountable for the consequences of Erb's palsy.

In many cases, doctors are able to predict the possibility of shoulder dystocia due to the large size of the fetus and avoid this complication by delivering early or by cesarean section. There are also steps doctors can take during delivery to minimize the likelihood of nerve damage.

Seeking Fair Compensation for Long-Term Consequences

A child who develops Erb's palsy may require surgery or other medical intervention. Even temporary paralysis, when it occurs at such a crucial time in a child's development, can have long-term consequences, including underdeveloped muscles and arthritis.

At DeLuca & Weizenbaum, we have an in-depth understanding of both the medical and legal issues involved in Erb's palsy cases. Don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your child's case with one of our attorneys. You will not pay us any fees unless we help you get compensation.
