The birth of a child is a miraculous event that brings feelings of joy, contentment, excitement, and awe at what you’ve just experienced. Parents look forward to loving, raising, and providing for their precious little child.

Unfortunately, there are things that can happen in the delivery room which shatter those dreams and give way to tragedy. As New York medical malpractice attorneys, a common occurrence we see is when one or both of the baby’s shoulders become lodged behind the mother’s pubic bone.

There are special treatment plans in place specifically for doctors to address this issue in a delicate and successful manner. Most doctors will follow these specific plans, but some do not.

They end up pushing or pulling on the baby’s head in an effort to dislodge it from the current position. When this happens, the results can be devastating. Spinal cord nerve roots can be damaged to the point of rupturing, and the result is Erb’s Palsy.

This is a terrible and unnecessary event that can lead to lifelong, irreversible damage.

If you think your baby’s Erb’s Palsy was the result of medical malpractice, contact The Law Offices of Michael S. Lamonsoff, PLLC, immediately. Our team has extensive experience fighting for the victims of Erb’s Palsy, and we will get you the financial compensation that you deserve.

Why do I need a medical malpractice attorney?

There are several reasons why a New York medical malpractice attorney can help ease the burden of the pain you are enduring. First, an experienced attorney will have access to specific medical records that you may not be able to retrieve on your own.

They also know what to specifically look for in these records that may indicate or document a medical malpractice claim. Additionally, medical care for victims of Erb’s Palsy can be quite extensive and costly. A New York medical malpractice attorney can help get you the financial compensation that will ease the financial burden and allow you to provide the medical care that your child needs. The last thing that you should have to worry about is how to pay for the care that your child needs.
