Baltimore, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/10/2015 -- When a difficult birth occurs, the medical approach taken to deliver the baby can sometimes cause a life-altering injury. In some instances, where the baby has trouble traveling through the birth canal, the network of nerves in the arm, called the brachial plexus, are damaged. This condition, which can be caused by the doctor pulling too hard, affects about one to two babies out of every 1,000 born. If the medical malpractice of brachial plexus, also called Erb's Palsy, is suspected, parents should seek compensation by taking action in the court of law. The lawyers of the national leading law firm for birth injuries, Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC, have handled various Erb's Palsy cases and are experienced in recommending a course of action.
To discover if their baby's brachial plexus injury was a result of a medical mistake, parents can consult with a birth defects lawyer from Baltimore, MD, at no cost. The lawyer will listen to the client's story, assess the facts, determine if there is a case, and then provide a legal strategy aimed to accomplish a settlement. Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC is experienced in representing particular cases involving Erb's Palsy and is devoted to fighting for the rights of their clients. Some of the cases entailed the error of using forceps or a vacuum to aid in the difficult delivery, when instead a cesarean section should have been performed after the attempt was unsuccessful. According to medical regulations, only a certain number of pulls are allowed until the procedure must be abandoned to initiate a cesarean section.
