Pittsburgh Erb’s Palsy Attorney

When Doctor Negligence Leads to Erb’s Palsy and Birth Injury

Erb’s Palsy is a condition resulting from injury to the shoulder, specifically the nerves in the brachial plexus, during birth, and the results can be permanently disabling for your child. Often characterized by a baby that is unable to move his hand or arms, Erb’s Palsy can be caused by medical malpractice during labor and delivery.

At Dallas W. Hartman, P.C., in New Castle, Hermitage, Butler or Erie, our attorneys work with parents across the Greater Pittsburgh area who have suffered as a result of an OB/GYN’s mistake or some other form of medical malpractice. For 30 years our lawyers have focused on getting results for clients while providing experienced and personal service.

If Your Baby Is Injured During Childbirth

It would be ideal if nurses, doctors and hospitals could be relied on to quickly disclose any errors that were made during your child’s birth and provide complete and adequate compensation for the injured immediately. The reality is that if you suspect that your child has suffered an injury such as shoulder dystocia resulting in Erb’s Palsy during labor and delivery, it will fall on you to uncover the truth.

Our firm is a highly experienced medical malpractice firm with a reputation spanning 25 years of helping families who have suffered unnecessarily. We can investigate and expose incidents of doctor or nurse error, such as:

  • Improper use of forceps or vacuum extractors
  • Improper monitoring
  • Use of out-of-date birth procedures and techniques
  • Delayed or denied C-section
  • Failure to recognize fetal distress
  • Failure to diagnose or treat the poor fetal position

Child birth injury cases are complex and require a law firm that is willing to stand by clients for months or years. When we take your case, our lawyers are committed to getting results and making sure your family has the resources you need to pay for the proper care of your child.
