What Is Erb’s Palsy And Its Impact On Family

Also known as brachial plexus birth palsy, Erb’s palsy is a condition affecting a child’s shoulder nerves. It can result from excessive force during childbirth or improper handling by medical staff. Erb’s palsy can lead to permanent weakness or paralysis in the affected arm, impacting the child’s daily life and future opportunities.

The cost of long-term care, therapy and potential surgeries can significantly place financial and emotional burden on families. You can alleviate some of this pressure by exploring your legal options to support your child’s well-being and future.
