Birth Injury Attorneys Serving Northwest Indiana
A result of an injury to the brachial plexus nerve network, Erb’s palsy limits the communication between the spinal cord and a person’s hands, wrists, arms, and shoulders. Most injuries to this bundle of nerves heal without treatment, but extensive stretching or tearing to the network can result in irreversible damage. Erb’s palsy is commonly caused by injuries an infant sustains during a difficult delivery.
The Northwest Indiana birth injury attorneys of Theodoros & Rooth, P.C. can represent your family if your child has Erb’s palsy as a result of a medical professional’s actions or failure to act.
With more than 110 years of collective experience, our attorneys have achieved successful settlements and verdicts for clients whose Erb’s palsy cases involved:
- Prolonged labors
- Breech births
- Delivery by forceps or vacuums
- The use of labor-inducing medications
- Shoulder dystocia
We understand how traumatic dealing with Erb’s palsy can be for families, and our lawyers are here to pursue compensation for past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, and any other losses your family has experienced. We work closely with parents to help their children receive the treatment they need to minimize the effects their condition has on their day-to-day life, offering them a chance at a more stable future.

Types of Erb’s Palsy
Depending on the severity of the injury, those with Erb’s palsy can experience anything from decreased sensation in the limb to complete paralysis.
There are four main types of Erb’s palsy:
- Avulsion, where the nerves are torn away from the spinal cord
- Ruptures, where the nerve is torn but not directly off the spinal cord
- Neuroma, where a torn nerve heals but does not communicate with the spinal cord because of scar tissue
- Neuropraxia, where the nerve is only stretched, not torn
