New Hampshire Brachial Plexus / Erb’s Palsy Lawyers
It goes without saying that newborn babies and young children are extremely delicate, and even seemingly minor injuries to children can have extremely seriously developmental consequences. One unfortunately common injury that many babies suffer is injury to the brachial plexus, resulting in Erb’s palsy. The brachial plexus is a bundle of nerves near a child’s shoulder, and if these nerves are strained or otherwise damaged, the affected child could develop Erb’s palsy, which is a paralysis of the arm. Erb’s palsy can result in a range of difficulties, including limited range of motion, and unfortunately, it is often the result of medical malpractice.
At Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, our New Hampshire legal team knows just how much Erb’s palsy can affect your child’s development, and when injuries to the brachial plexus are the result of medical wrongdoing, we believe that the responsible medical professionals need to be held accountable for their negligence. Our firm is dedicated to holding medical practitioners accountable when their mistakes result in harm to a child, and we are ready to put this commitment and our years of experience to work for you.
Common Causes of Erb’s Palsy
Unfortunately, there are a number of ways in which the carelessness of a medical professional could result in damage to the brachial plexus. Some of the most common causes of these injuries include:
- Pulling on a baby’s head or neck during birth
- Incorrect or unnecessary use of certain medical tools, like forceps
- Tugging or pulling on a baby’s arms or shoulders
When medical professionals fail to ensure the safety of their patients, we believe that they should be held responsible for the consequences of their actions. At Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, we want to help you take action if your child has suffered a birth injury because of a medical mistake.
