A Primer on Erb's Palsy for the Lay Person
We have been prosecuting Erb's Palsy and Birth Trauma cases for over 40 years, with a proven track record of great results.
The Law Offices of Mark R. Bower is the only firm in New York to ever win summary judgment for the patient in an Erb's Palsy case, meaning liability was established just on the legal papers, without the need of a trial, resulting in a prompt settlement. ("Roser v. Benedictine").
Together with co-counsel, we also won a national landmark precedent that precluded the defense from using the usual "natural forces of labor defense" that attempts to blame Mother Nature, or the mother's anatomy or contractions, for the Erb's Palsy. ("Muhummad vs. Fitzpatrick"). This terrific precedent was affirmed on appeal, and quickly followed by courts in two more of our Erb's Palsy cases in NY, driving favorable settlements, and has generated great interest nation-wide in the malpractice bar.
Mark R. Bower has attained national prominence, lecturing on "precluding the natural forces of labor defense" for the American Association of Justice and the Academy of Trial Lawyers of the State of New York, is a 30-year member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a Regular Guest Commentator or Court TV, and is one of the few attorneys in the country who are Board-Certified in Medical Malpractice (American Bd. of Prof. Liability Attorneys) and an Associate of the American College of Legal Medicine. Mark is the past Co-Chair of the Medical Negligence Info. Exchange Group of the American Association of Justice.
