The brachial plexus is the network of nerves responsible for controlling the upper limbs. When damage to the brachial plexus occurs, a variety of temporary or permanent injuries can affect the neck, shoulders, arms, hands, and fingers.
While brachial plexus injuries may occur in various personal injury accidents, brachial plexus injuries are among the most common types of injuries caused by birth trauma and malpractice during childbirth. If your newborn or infant was negligently injured by a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional, you have the right to take action against those responsible.
