Getting a diagnosis for Erb’s palsy is a crucial step in understanding your child’s needs and how best to support them.

Erb’s palsy can manifest in various ways, and the diagnostic process often involves several steps. It typically starts with an observation of your child’s motor skills and developmental milestones. If there are concerns, your pediatrician might refer you to a specialist, such as a pediatric neurologist, who can conduct more comprehensive evaluations, which might include brain imaging tests like MRI or CT scans. These tests can provide insights into any brain damage or abnormalities that may be contributing to your child’s symptoms.

Getting a diagnosis opens up access to specialized therapies, educational resources, and support systems designed to enhance your child’s abilities and quality of life.

As you navigate this process, take comfort in knowing that there is legal aid for Erb’s palsy cases available. We specialize in providing the families of children with Erb’s palsy legal help so that they can pursue compensation to provide for long-term living and medical expenses.

As a parent caring for a child with Erb’s palsy, you’re on a unique and sometimes challenging journey. Understanding the symptoms Erb’s palsy is an important part of navigating this path.

Erb’s palsy is a complex condition with symptoms that can vary greatly from one child to another. Generally, it affects muscle tone, movement, and motor skills. You might notice that your child has paralysis or limpness in the shoulder, arm or elbow. It’s possible that they can’t lift their arm away from the body. Numbness and tingling may occur. Also, their hand may remain contorted in a non-normal position. They may experience difficulties with coordination and control, muscle stiffness or weakness, or involuntary movements. Some children may also experience challenges with balance and posture or fine motor tasks like writing.

It’s also not uncommon for children with Erb’s palsy to have co-occurring conditions. It’s important to remember that these symptoms are a result of how Erb’s palsy affects the brain and are not reflective of your child’s capabilities or potential.

Witnessing these symptoms in your child can be worrying and heart-wrenching, but know that each child with Erb’s palsy has their own set of strengths and abilities. While Erb’s palsy is a lifelong condition, early and ongoing intervention can make a significant difference. Alongside medical and technological support, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and muscle therapy can greatly enhance your child’s abilities and quality of life. Charities, community resources, or even a malpractice lawsuit may be able to help you secure funds for these therapies and other expenses.

When a hospital, doctor, or other healthcare provider makes a mistake or is negligent during the birthing process, they may cause a birth injury that itself causes Erb’s palsy in the child. This is considered Erb’s palsy medical malpractice, and it can occur from several different incidents during birth, including:

  • Anesthesia Errors – Improperly administered anesthesia (such as an epidural) can lead to serious harm to both the mother and child and can result in brain damage, leading to the development of cerebral palsy.
  • Asphyxiation, Strangulation, or Respiratory Distress during Delivery – One of the most common causes of Erb’s is the infant having their oxygen supply (blood flow) cut off in the womb or during delivery.
  • Brain Damage Caused During Labor or Delivery – The majority of children born with Erb’s palsy suffer brain injuries during labor and delivery, often due to medical mistakes.
  • Infections during Pregnancy – Certain infections in the mother, including Rubella, cytomegalovirus, and toxoplasmosis, can lead to elevated levels of proteins called “cytokines,” which cause inflammation and can lead to brain damage in the baby.
  • Insufficient Oxygenation – When a baby’s blood supply is cut off, especially for several minutes, permanent brain damage can easily occur.
  • Missed Cesarean Opportunity – When a C-section is warranted but not performed in time, leading to permanent brain damage.
  • Surgical Errors – Many times, birth injuries that lead to the development of cerebral palsy are caused by preventable surgical errors related to anesthesia or c-sections.

If a doctor or hospital’s negligence caused harm to your child, your family deserves to be compensated. Erb’s palsy can put incredible strain on a family, and treatment can cost upwards of $1 million. An Erb’s palsy malpractice or negligence lawsuit holds medical providers responsible for these costs, and for the harm they have caused your child.

If your child’s cerebral palsy was caused by medical malpractice, why should this financial burden fall on the family? To discuss your family’s legal options, reach out to our team at My Cerebral Palsy Child. We’re here for you.

  • There was a direct link between the Erb’s Palsy diagnosis and negligence.
