When complications arise at birth, doctors and nurses have to act fast to relieve the complication without harming the baby or mother. If the healthcare professionals do not act quickly and carefully, birth injuries could occur. Sadly, these Northern Kentucky birth injuries could have been avoided if they were identified sooner, acted on quicker, and if proper procedures were followed.
If your baby suffered Erb's Palsy, there is a good chance that it was caused by medical negligence. This means that the labor and delivery doctor may have failed to use due care while delivering your baby, resulting in medical malpractice.
A birth injury lawyer can help you decide if the physician breached the standard of care and if you have a claim against your doctor, resulting in an Erb's Palsy or brachial plexus lawsuit.
