Cerebral Palsy/Erb’s Palsy

Houston Cerebral Palsy Lawyers

Harris County Erb's Palsy Attorneys

Two common types of birth injuries are Erb's palsy and cerebral palsy. In the aftermath of a traumatic birth that results in a significant birth injury, parents are forced to confront many critical questions about health care in the hospital and at home. They also face the financial burdens associated with that care, which may last for years into the future.

If a doctor's error or nurse's error in the delivery room caused the birth injury, it is important for parents to hold negligent parties accountable. At The Law Firm of Alton C. Todd, our firm encourages parents of children born with Erb's palsy or cerebral palsy to seek professional and experienced legal advice as soon as possible. It is important to understand your options.

Cerebral palsy is a medical condition where the body movements and body coordination of infants are impaired due to brain damage. Erb's palsy, also known as brachial plexus palsy, results when excessive force is applied to the neck of a child during delivery. Both of these conditions will have lasting effects on children.
