Doctor’s sometimes apply excessive force in an attempt to guide the baby through the birth canal and cause damage to the nerves that control the arm and hand. This network of nerves is called the brachial plexus. When excessive force is applied to the head and neck during birth, the brachial plexus can stretch or tear causing potential life-long injury to the child.

Avulsion Injury – The Worst Type of Erb’s Palsy

You may have heard your doctor describe your child’s injury as an avulsion injury. This is one of the worst types of Erb’s palsy injuries that a child can suffer from. An avulsion injury is when the nerves in the child’s neck and shoulder are torn from the spinal cord. These torn nerves usually occur when a doctor or midwife pulls down too hard on the baby during child birth.

The term in the medical community when handling a birth involving shoulder dystocia is to apply “gentle traction” in order to deliver the shoulders. There are documented cases, however, where such force was applied by the doctor that the child has been decapitated.
