Erb’s Palsy Lawyers in Phoenix

Standing Up for You & Your Child – Cullan & Cullan

A form of a brachial plexus injury, Erb’s palsy is a specific upper arm injury suffered by a child during or shortly after birth. Just as with brachial plexus and other forms of birth injuries, Erb’s palsy is commonly caused by medical malpractice. When the proper steps are taken during delivery, this medical condition can be entirely avoided. When they are not, the odds of it occurring greatly increase.

If your child was born with Erb’s palsy and you suspect a doctor’s mistake is to blame, then come to Cullan & Cullan. Our law firm was established by Dr. Dan Cullan, who was one of the first doctor-lawyers in the country. We proudly continue on his tradition as a team of doctor-lawyers ourselves. With our medical expertise and legal backgrounds, we should be your first and only choice for legal representation for your birth injury case.

Complications Caused by Erb’s Palsy

Birth injuries like Erb’s palsy can range from moderate to severe and be long-lasting or permanent. Since Erb’s palsy is caused by harm to the tendons and nerves of a newborn’s shoulder and neck, it is likely the injury will be severe and permanent. As such, compensation owed to you and your child needs to consider harm and damages already suffered, and what will be experienced well into the future.

Symptoms of Erb’s palsy may include:

  • Paralysis: The arm affected by Erb’s palsy may be completely paralyzed from the injury. Partial paralysis may also occur.
  • Chronic pain: Children born with Erb’s palsy often report feeling pain, soreness, or uncomfortable numbness at all times in the affected region.
  • Growth atrophy: An arm afflicted by Erb’s palsy may experience muscular atrophy that stunts its growth. The result may be your child has two differently-sized arms, contributing to discomfort and causing social anxieties later in life.
