Brachial Plexus

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.

Contact an experienced birth injury lawyer at Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA now if your newborn or child suffers from any birth trauma or brachial plexus injury, including:

  • Klumpke’s Palsy
  • Erb’s Palsy
  • Shoulder Dystocia
  • Neck, Shoulder, Arm, Hand, or Finger Weakness

Infant limb pain, loss of feeling, and weakness are often the result of birth trauma and medical negligence.  If you believe your child may have suffered a brachial plexus injury, call us now to discuss your rights and potential claims.

Brachial Plexus Treatment

Treatment for brachial plexus birth injuries can vary depending on injury type and severity.  Treatments may include physical therapy, pain medication and management, and corrective surgery.  In addition to treatments, families of infants with brachial plexus injuries often must spend significant time and financial resources providing care to correct doctors’ and nurses’ mistakes.
