Hiring a Lawyer Can Help You Recover More Money!

Roxanne Martinez was driving when an SUV hit her car, knocking her out. The other driver, Michelle LaFlamme, got a ticket and had Allstate auto insurance.

Ms. Martinez had approximately $25,000 worth of medical bills and lost wages. Allstate offered her $15,000. So she got a lawyer.

Then Allstate paid her $187,506. This included money for pain and suffering, damage to her
car, and other expenses.

loved one has been in an accident

Receive Full Compensation When There
Has Been an Erb's Palsy Birth Injury

When babies are born via a vaginal delivery, normally there are not any problems with the birth.  However, there are three main methods through which a vaginal birth can damage one of the baby's shoulders.  First, metal forceps that grasp a baby's shoulder, instead of the head, can damage the shoulder.  Second, with a head-first birth, after the head comes out, if one of the shoulders is caught behind the pubic bone, then excessive pulling on the head can damage one of the shoulders.  Third, with a breech birth, wherein the baby's torso comes out first and the head and arms come out last, this can put pressure on and damage one of the baby's shoulders.

When there is damage to a newborn's shoulder, there are two possible ways this could occur.  First, one of the shoulder bones, the clavicle bone, could be broken.  Second, the nerves in the shoulder, which is called the brachial plexus bundle of nerves, could be bruised or torn.

When there is damage to the shoulder, movement of the entire arm can be painful or impossible, depending on the extent of the damage.  If there is paralysis of the upper and the lower portions of the arm, this is called Erb's palsy.

When the clavicle is broken, the shoulder will heal quickly and the baby will usually be fine.  When there is damage to the brachial plexus nerves, if the nerves are only bruised, then the baby will usually regain the ability to move the arm, and the arm can usually develop normally. 

However, when the nerves are torn, then surgery might be an option.  Doctors can replace the brachial plexus nerves with some of the nerves from the opposite leg, up until around nine months of age.  If this is not done or if this is unsuccessful, then the paralysis may be partial or permanent, any mobility of that arm can be limited, and growth in that arm will usually be stunted.

Get the Money You Need and Deserve

You need an experienced lawyer who can, alongside independent medical experts, determine whether medical malpractice is the reason why your child developed Erb's palsy.  If negligence during the baby's delivery caused the Erb's palsy, then you be entitled to receive compensation for special orthopedic devices that can help manage this injury.  These devices can be expensive.  In addition, there are usually many additional medical expenses, a certain amount of loss of future income, and there is always pain and suffering.
