Erb’s Palsy Is a Devastating Birth Injury

Through the media, most people have heard the phrase brachial plexus injury, but do not have a clear idea of what it actually is. The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that transmit impulses from the spinal cord to the arms and hands. An injury to this bundle of nerves can cause partial or total paralysis.

Erb’s palsy is the most common form of brachial plexus injury. Through the history of our practice, our lawyers have gained insight into how to develop effective case strategies for even the most complex birth injury cases. At Harris Powers & Cunningham, we have extensive experience guiding clients through the process of recovering monetary compensation through personal injury lawsuits. Call us at 602-910-6779 to schedule a consultation.

Whether Settling Your Case or Representing You in Court — Harris Powers & Cunningham

Most brachial plexus injuries occur at birth. Due to the stress placed on the body during childbirth and the lack of musculature, many babies are at risk of suffering damage to this network of nerves. Damage can result in limited mobility or feeling in the shoulders, arms and hands. While a certain percentage of brachial plexus injuries heal naturally, the rest can require physical therapy or surgery to repair the damage. It is wise to consult with an experienced injury lawyer who can answer your questions and provide the representation you need.
