Common Causes of Erb’s Palsy in Rhode Island

Many Erb’s palsy cases are caused by medical malpractice or negligence, which is when a medical error takes place before, during, or shortly after a child’s birth.

These mistakes may result in injuries to the brachial plexus nerves, which can cause Erb’s palsy and result in numbness, pain, weakness, or paralysis in a child’s arm.

Examples of Erb’s palsy medical malpractice include a doctor:

  • Using forceps or vacuum extractors incorrectly
  • Not ordering a C-section when necessary
  • Using excessive force to pull the baby from the birth canal

If your child suffered a brachial plexus injury at birth, you may be eligible for compensation that our Rhode Island Erb’s palsy attorneys can pursue on your behalf.

“Our daughter's traumatic birth left us devastated. She faces numerous issues, and I can't work as I need to care for her. Sokolove Law stepped in and helped us fight for justice. With their help, we can breathe a little easier, knowing our daughter's needs will be met.”
– Sokolove Law Birth Injury Client

We have registered nurses on staff with decades of labor and delivery experience who can help determine if your child’s injury may have been caused by a medical error.
