Brachial Plexus Injuries During Birth
A brachial plexus injury is a very serious injury that can result during birth when the baby is pulled from the womb by using excessive force. In other cases resulting in this type of injury, the baby is too large to fit through the birth canal or has become stuck and a cesarean section has not been ordered. As a result of mishandling of the fetus with excessive force, a brachial plexus injury can result. This type of injury significantly increases the chances that Erb’s Palsy will develop.
Permanent Erb’s Palsy may entail full or partial paralysis of the arm. Even if the injury is treated promptly, the chances of complete recovery are slim. Almost all patients experience significant ongoing shoulder pain, in addition to, limited mobility. A patient should immediately consider pursuing a medical malpractice claim if this type of injury has occurred. Getting proper compensation to deal with the medical treatments that will likely continue for a lifetime is essential.
The litigation process for a brachial plexus injury case can be extremely complex and requires the assistance of a competent medical malpractice attorney. The hospital and doctors have attorneys to represent them in such matters and so should you.
