Cerebral palsy is a health condition in which muscle movements and body coordination of a baby are damaged due to brain injury. Erb's palsy, also referred to as brachial plexus palsy, usually happens when extravagant force was used on the neck of the baby during the birth. Injury to the network of nerves called the brachial plexus may result in a limp leg or arm. Our medical malpractice lawyers handle complicated birth injury cases where the attending physician mishandled the delivery and caused a preventable injury to the newborn baby.
