New Jersey Erb’s Palsy Lawsuit
When a medical error occurs during your child’s difficult delivery, it changes your life forever. Years of surgeries and physical therapy may be necessary to give your child a bearable life. If your child has been diagnosed with Erb’s Palsy, and you’re stuck with unfair medical bills, you should consider filing a New Jersey Erb’s Palsy Lawsuit.
Erb’s Palsy sometimes happens due to medical negligence, when a doctor or nurse incorrectly delivers a baby by applying too much downward pressure. This pressure can bruise or tear the fifth and sixth cervical nerves, leading to temporary to permanent paralysis of the affected arm. Erb’s Palsy is one of several birthing injuries common to the brachial plexus nerves. The paralysis can be mild to severe, and may require nerve grafting, or bone, muscle or tendon cutting and repositioning. Your young baby may require multiple surgeries to regain some use of the arm.
Even after all these procedures, your child may still need physical therapy into adulthood. And some patients suffer from other common lifelong ailments, including loss of sensation, internal temperature-control problems and arthritis. These costly medical and therapy bills can take a toll on your mental and emotional well-being, not to mention your financial health. Your family shouldn’t have to worry about money because of someone else’s mistake.
