What is Erb’s Palsy

Erbs palsy is a devastating condition caused generally by the malpractice and negligence of those who administer the birth. Often times this can occur when the doctors fail to inform the mother of their options, including cesarean section birth or other alternatives. If your child has Erbs Palsy contact our offices for a free case evaluation we can help with your recovery.

Risk Factors associated with  Erb’s Palsy:

There are several risk factors associated with shoulder dystocia injuries including

  • Large Size of Child during delivery

Liability for Erbs Palsy: Birth Medical Malpractice

A major question with regards to Erbs Palsy cases is liability, who is liable for the injuries of my child? In such instances it can be possible to assert liability on multiple parties.

  • The treating physician or doctor can be held liable;
  • Hospitals and outpatient clinics can be held liable for the injuries; and
  • Supporting staff members including those who were present at the scene of the incident or at the time of the birth can be held liable.

Erbs palsy is a serious and devastating condition. It can cause emotional and serious financial consequences. Families dealing with a child who has Erbs Palsy know how challenging and difficult it is dealing with such conditions. Daily visits to therapist, doctors and hospitals can be taxing.

Average Value of an Erb’s Palsy Case

What is the average value of an Erb’s Palsy lawsuit? In general, these medical malpractice claims tend to be high value, as the brachial plexus injury and the Erb’s Palsy can be devastating. Let’s consider some example of passed settlements for these types of cases:

  • $9.9 million – a baby girl suffered both a brachial plexus injury and brain damage during a botched vacuum-assisted delivery. Her parents claimed that the staff failed to order and perform a C-section.
  • $2 million – a baby suffered multiple injuries, including a brachial plexus injury, which resulted in paralysis in his left arm. His mother claimed that the staff failed to properly treat the stuck shoulder during delivery.
  • $2.3 million – a baby boy suffered a right brachial plexus injury, resulting in limited mobility of his right arm. His mother claimed that the staff mismanaged his birth and used excessive force when his shoulder became stuck during delivery.

As you can see, these are high value cases. However, it is important to note that every case is different, and no value is guaranteed. The value of your case will ultimately be based on many factors, including the severity of the injury, the effect of the injury (i.e., did it result in limited mobility or paralysis of the arm), and the competency of the legal team handling your lawsuit. For more information about the potential value of your claim, contact us immediately.

Typical Settlement Time

How long does it take to settle an Erb’s Palsy case? What is the average time to get an offer? This varies from case to case. These cases can take a few months or even a few years to settle. Ultimately, the time that it takes to reach a settlement will vary from case to case.

Here at our law firm, we are committed to settling these types of cases as quickly as possible. Typically, we can settle these types of cases within six to eight months. However, some cases simply cannot be settled within this timeframe as they could be more complex, or a number of issues can arise during the settlement process.

In addition, you can be certain that our lawyers will always keep you informed so that you will never be left wondering what is going on with your case and with your settlement.

DTLA Client Review

“I honestly cannot say enough good things about Farid. I never even truly became his client, as in I never paid him a single cent, and he helped me get my case settled with my current lawyer. I had accidentally contacted Farid’s firm in an attempt to contact my lawyer, who had ignored me for months. Farid contacted me himself within minutes of me talking to a live representative of theirs online (and this was really late at night, too).”
