Erb’s Palsy Lawyers Help Prevent the Preventable
Erb’s Palsy (also known as brachial plexus palsy) is an injury to the brachial plexus nerves, which is a network of nerves around the shoulder. It is often the result of medical negligence or improper medical care by medical experts.
Symptoms of Erb’s Palsy can be evident soon after birth or in a child’s first years and include a limp arm, lack of movement in the baby’s arm or hand, or a decreased grip on the affected arm’s side.

An Erb’s Palsy lawyer seeks to hold negligent medical professionals responsible for this preventable brachial plexus injury.
