Injuries To The Brachial Plexus Can Be Debilitating

The brachial plexus is a bundle of nerves that emanates from the cervical spine. Injury to the brachial plexus can result in lifetime disability and pain and suffering. When that injury results during birth it is known as shoulder dystocia. The cause of a brachial plexus injury can often be traced to a physician’s failure to recognize or respond to known risks, such as:

  • Macrosomia (large babies)
  • Previous dystocia
  • Maternal obesity
  • Advanced maternal age
  • The use of vacuum extraction or high forceps delivery

Often, medical malpractice claims arising out of a brachial plexus injury hinge on the issue of informed consent. When a doctor fails to inform a mother of the risk of shoulder dystocia and brachial plexus injury, malpractice may have occurred. You will need to contact an experienced birth injury attorney to weigh out your options and see if you have a case.

Brachial plexus injury cases, such as those involving a diagnosis of Erb’s palsy, have become more difficult to win in recent years, but victims should not give up without a fight. An experienced attorney can conduct an in-depth investigation into the medical records pertaining to obstetrical care during a mother’s labor and a baby’s delivery. This investigation may reveal the point in the birthing process that medical negligence occurred. If negligence is found, it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side.

As is often the case, failure to monitor fetal condition and position can often be pinpointed as the exact cause of a serious birth injury. At The Lancione Law Firm, we believe our clients who suffer from the lifelong effects of cerebral palsy or other birth injuries deserve answers. If a birth injury was caused by medical negligence, we will fight for compensation for you, your family, and your future.
