$1,846,000 – Birth Injury, Erb’s Palsy/Brachial Plexus Injury

Posted in and tagged by kawilhelm

A child was injured during birth and suffered from Erb’s Palsy, also known as Brachial Plexus Injury. Erb’s Palsy occurs when the doctor who delivers the child puts too much pressure on the head during the delivery of the child, thereby damaging the brachial plexus nerves, which run from the shoulder to the neck. That can greatly limit the movement and function of the affected arm. This was the highest amount ever awarded, at the time, in a case of Erbs Palsy.  It remained the highest paid case for many years after.

Our firm worked with another firm to reach this verdict. The verdict was  so large that it was reduced from a higher amount on appeal.
