Who Is Responsible for My Child's Injury in Georgia?
In most cases, Erb's Palsy is both preventable and almost always the fault of the hospital staff overseeing the birth of the child. Damage ranging from mild to severe can adversely affect a small portion of the shoulder area known as the Brachial plexus - a network of nerves that directs information from cervical spine cord to the arms, hands, and fingers. If this bundle is torn, stretched, or ruptured in anyway, the damage can be catastrophic. Doctors often face such consequences if one or more of following occur:
- Pulling or pushing on the baby's head, neck, or shoulders during a difficult labor;
- Failure to catch difficulties during labor, such as shoulder dystocia;
- Improper use of forceps, vacuum extractors, and other medical equipment;
- Failure to properly evaluate fetal size;
- Failure to offer a cesarean section to avoid multiple risk factors to the baby's health.
