St. Louis Delivery Room Errors and Malpractice Lawyers
Damage to the brachial plexus during a delivery may result in Erb’s palsy, a physical disability that may involve disfigurement, a lack of development and lack of use in a child’s arm. For parents and for the child, having to deal with Erb’s palsy is tragic, especially given that this is often a preventable birth injury. Erb’s palsy is the term used to describe the damage done to the nerves of the brachial plexus, which usually results from unnecessary force during the delivery.
At Brown & Crouppen, our firm provides assistance for parents who have been impacted by an injury to the brachial plexus during the birth process. Children who suffer this type of damage may have to deal with a lifetime of physical and social problems. We want to ensure that our clients receive the compensation that they deserve for current and future costs related to these accidents.
Did you know? The brachial plexus is a collection of nerve fibers that run from the spine through the neck and into the arm.

When an infant is pulled through the birth canal with force that is too hard during the delivery process, it can result in serious damage to the nerves known as the brachial plexus. When this damage happens, it may permanently impact the use of the child’s arm, which may never be able to fully extend or recover. The arm may also have its strength impacted, and atrophy may occur.
