Brachial Plexus Injuries

San Jose Brachial Plexus Injury Attorney

Brachial Plexus Birth Injuries: Causes, Types, and Implications

The Brachial Plexus is a system of nerves near the neck that controls movement in the arm and shoulder. Depending on the degree of the injury, damage to the brachial plexus can result in temporary pain and numbness or lasting motor problems and paralysis in the arm.

Compensation for Brachial Plexus Injuries

If you suspect that a negligent doctor or medical professional caused your child's brachial plexus injury, you may be entitled to compensation on your child's behalf. Compensation from a birth injury lawsuit can be used to cover any damages associated with the injury, such as:

  • Hospitalization
  • Medication
  • Physical Therapy

What Causes a Brachia Plexus Injury?

Any number of factors can contribute to a child's brachial plexus injury. Generally, this type of injury occurs when the child's neck and shoulder become lodged against the mother's pelvic bone during birth. This is called shoulder dystocia, and, if handled incorrectly, can damage the nerves in the brachial plexus.

Other risk factors include: 

  • Breach Births
  • The Baby's Size
  • Induced Birth
  • Use of Vacuum Extractor
  • Forceps During Delivery
