$300,000 Settlement for Obstetric Brachial Plexus Injury / Erb’s Palsy

Mr. Makowicz represented a young man who sustained a brachial plexus injury at birth resulting in Erb’s Palsy. This nerve injury was caused by the delivering doctor who exerted excessive lateral traction to the boy’s neck when shoulder dystocia was encountered. The now 23 year old plaintiff suffers from limitations in movement and use of his arm.
