Erb's Palsy

Erb’s Palsy

Let an Erb’s palsy lawyer in Tennessee be your strong advocate

When an infant’s shoulder becomes trapped behind the mother’s pelvic bone, the infant may come down with a condition known as Erb’s palsy, or a brachial plexus injury. Doctors must act quickly to relieve the complication, technically known as shoulder dystocia. In some cases, an inexperienced doctor may aggravate an injury by trying to forcibly extract an infant whose shoulder is trapped.

Erb’s palsy is nerve damage resulting from damage to the brachial plexus due to the shoulder being stuck while the child is in-utero. The brachial plexus is a mass of nerves in the armpit that is responsible for transmitting nerve signals to the arm.

If your infant is suffering from Erb’s palsy due to negligence, it’s crucial to consult with an experienced attorney. Too much is at stake to pursue a claim on your own or with the wrong attorney. At Meade Law Group, we have experience assisting Tennessee families dealing with birth defects and injuries. We know how to take an aggressive stand against the insurance companies and pursue maximum compensation while being sensitive to our clients’ needs during a difficult time.
