Erb’s Palsy Lawyer in Boise

Idaho Medical Malpractice Attorneys with a Combined 60 Years of Experience

Erb's palsy is a serious and debilitating condition resulting from errors made during birth. Specifically, Erb's palsy involves paralysis of the arm or arms, and commonly results from shoulder dystocia, which is an obstetrical emergency in which a baby's shoulders prevent a smooth and timely birth once the birth has begun.

There was a time when Erb's palsy and shoulder dystocia were unfortunate medical accidents and conditions. Now, however, with medical advances, these conditions are most often a result of medical malpractice and negligence. Consequently, someone suffering from Erb's palsy can often successfully pursue compensation under Idaho law.

If you need to know what your legal options are regarding Erb's palsy, contact the law firm of Houst Law Office PLLC in Boise. Stu Carty and Henry Houst Jr. have helped numerous families recover the compensation they need following Erb's palsy, including money for pain and suffering , physical therapy costs and surgery costs.

For experienced legal advice following birth injuries, including Erb's palsy and cerebral palsy, call 208-342-3501 or 877-293-9300.

Often, families facing Erb's palsy symptoms are told to "give it a little more time." Time, though, won't clear up Erb's palsy symptoms. A diagnosis and treatment are needed to address paralysis, muscular and range-of-motion issues.

We can work with treating physicians and other medical experts to investigate the cause of your child's medical issues, to document injuries and pursue the compensation you need and deserve. Financial compensation won't undo the bad decisions of doctors and nurses, but will provide the funds to care for your child. For more information regarding our firm and your rights following birth injuries and medical malpractice, contact our office.
