Brachial Plexus Injuries Resulting in Paralysis and PainBrachial Plexus Lawyers NYC

A brachial plexus injury is an injury that can impair the function of the network of nerves that controls movement and sensation for the upper limbs. This type of injury typically results from trauma and can be caused by accidents, gunshot wounds or stab wounds. A brachial plexus injury may also be caused by birth when excessive pressure is put on the baby’s shoulder, resulting in the stretching or tearing of the brachial plexus nerves.

In the majority of birth complication cases, hospital staff members make the right decisions during difficult deliveries. However, in certain cases, the actions of these individuals may result in brachial plexus injuries, which can lead to the development of Erb’s Palsy. Erb’s Palsy is a devastating condition that can mean a lifetime of paralysis or limited mobility for the affected patient. In less serious cases, this type of injury causes a lifetime of shoulder pain in the victim that likely won’t improve.

Even if the patient is treated right away following the injury, there is little hope for recovery. A patient that has been injured as a result of negligent medical staff can expect to face long-term medical challenges.
