New Jersey Brachial Plexus Lawsuit

nurseryEvery new parent looks forward to a child’s birth with excitement and sometimes a little anxiety. No one expects the nightmare of a child being injured during the birthing process. A brachial plexus injury is among the most common delivery-related injuries reported among newborns, and can range from mild to severe symptoms. Some injuries are permanent, and require several surgeries and lifelong physical therapy. Even some temporary injuries may require surgery to remove scar tissue.

If your child has been injured while being delivered, you should speak with us about your rights and legal options. We offer free consultations, and can review your newborn’s medical records and advise you about whether the injury is related to medical error. We work with professional medical experts and have years of experience.

If the injury resulted from a doctor’s error, we can work with you to file a New Jersey brachial plexus lawsuit and attempt to get the compensation you deserve. You shouldn’t have to suffer financial ruin and emotional trauma because of someone else’s medical error. If doctors and nurses follow accepted, standard procedures, most cases of delivery-related brachial plexus nerve damage can easily be avoided.

During difficult deliveries, Shoulder Dystocia can cause a number of serious complications, including injury to the brachial plexus (bundle) of nerves. This condition results from a child’s shoulders becoming stuck during the birthing process. These nerves control sensation to muscles in the shoulder, arm, wrist and hand muscles. Four different types of injuries can affect this bundle of nerves, resulting in temporary to permanent injuries that are mild to severe in nature. In cases where the nerves are torn or torn away from the spine, the injuries are permanent and could require multiple surgeries and a lifetime of physical therapy. Additional complications include associated arthritis and loss of sensation in the arm.

Young parents shouldn’t agonize over the injury of a newborn, especially when it’s the result of medical error by a doctor or nurse. You should empower yourselves and protect your child’s health by asserting your legal rights. If the injury was caused by medical negligence, our skilled and experienced litigators will work with you in filing a New Jersey brachial plexus lawsuit. We will work hard in our attempt to procure the compensation you deserve for your suffering and your child’s injuries.
