New York Erb’s palsy lawyer David Perecman applauds Adrian Clayborn of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The defensive end is playing outstanding NFL football this season even with damage to his arm caused by Erb’s palsy.
“His success in football is to be commended. He was a first round NFL draft pick despite a birth injury that put him at a disadvantage every time he played,” said Erb’s palsy lawyer in New York Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm, one of New York’s Erb’s palsy law firms.
A common birth injury, Erb's palsy can be caused by a medical mistake during childbirth or labor. New York Erb’s palsy lawyers understand that, often, the injury may have been preventable.
Erb's palsy usually is caused when too much force is applied to the baby’s head while trying to pull it out of the birth canal. Pulling on the baby's head can stretch and injure the nerves in the brachial plexus. The nerve injury can effect the movement of the child's arm, shoulder, and hand.
According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, one or two of every 1,000 babies have this condition.
