Helping Moms And Families After A Serious Birth Injury

Birth injuries variously described as Erb’s palsy, brachial plexus injuries or Klumpke’s palsy refer to nerve damage that can cause paralysis of the shoulder, arm and hand. These conditions occur rarely enough that many families have never heard of them until their own children are affected. In some severe cases, the nerves are torn from the spine and children must cope with lifelong disabilities.

The most common cause of these injuries involves shoulder dystocia: a delivery complication in which the baby’s shoulder is trapped behind the mother’s pelvic bone. Obstetricians are taught various maneuvers intended to free babies in this situation, but failure to intervene effectively — including failure to perform a necessary C-section — or applying excessive pressure to the baby’s head can have severe consequences.

Did Doctor Or Hospital Negligence Cause Your Baby’s Disabling Injury?

Although not all instances of Erb’s palsy or other shoulder injuries at birth represent actionable medical negligence, severe cases call for a consultation with an experienced medical malpractice lawyer. Applying decades of relevant experience and calling on qualified experts, our attorneys are equipped to expose what really happened and whether a medical malpractice lawsuit should be filed based on a violation of the applicable standard of care.

Doctors’ and insurance defense claims in shoulder dystocia cases may include:

  • The size of the baby or other factors led to delivery complications that could not have been predicted or anticipated.
  • The maneuver and application of force that led to shoulder nerve damage were performed correctly, and it was the only alternative to a worse outcome such as the baby’s death.
  • Injuries occurred in utero, rather than during labor and delivery.

No Fees Unless We Pursue Your Valid, Serious Claim And Earn Results For You

I cannot thank Brad and the entire Kammholz Rossi team enough. I am so glad that I made the decision to have Brad represent me. I received an injury at work that would be a life changing event for me and my family. I needed to find an attorney that would look out for me and my family. After meeting with a few law firms I chose Brad and his firm. Brad was truly concerned with my injury and what was best for me and my family. Too many of the law firms I met with were only concerned with what they could get from a settlement. Brad is truly concerned with what is best for you. He will listen to all of your thoughts and concerns, and advise you on what actions would be best. Trust is a very important part of a relationship in a legal action. I trusted Brad and his firm. I always knew that Brad truly was looking out for what was best for me and my family. You will not regret having Brad and his entire firm represent you. Everyone there is very pleasant, friendly, casual and yet professional. Their approach helps reduce the stress and tension that comes with a bad situation. Over the twenty two months that Brad represented me, we developed a friendship. I consider Brad a friend and look forward to continuing that friendship for a long time. On behalf of me and my family we cannot thank-you enough for everything that you and your firm have done for us. Truly the best decision made in a bad situation.
