How can medical negligence lead to Erb’s Palsy?


  • Failure to recommend a C-section: If there are particular risk factors for shoulder dystocia in a vaginal birth, a c section would avoid those risks and Erb’s palsy injury
  • Failure to release the impacted shoulder correctly: During vaginal delivery, if healthcare professionals do not use proper manoeuvres to release the impacted shoulder, it can increase the risk of Erb’s Palsy.
  • Using excessive force: During vaginal delivery, when there is shoulder dystocia excessive pulling can cause Erb’s Palsy
