Brachial Plexus and Erb’s Palsy
Seek Compensation for Your Child’s Birth Injuries
Delivering a child requires precision, delicate hands, and absolute control.
A single mistake or act of negligence can cause the infant to suffer a serious
birth injury. When the delivering doctor pulls too harshly or in the wrong direction,
damage to the child’s arm can easily occur and lead to painful consequences
that persist for the rest of their life.
If your infant has arm-related injuries due to
medical malpractice at the time of birth, you can seek justice and financial compensation
that covers any recovery and hospital costs.

Different Forms of Arm-Related Birth Injuries
There are various forms of injuries that could afflict your infant’s
arm if the birthing procedure is not handled appropriately. Understanding
the wound or disorder that is affecting your child could be critical in
winning your case. When the medical staff acts negligently, your child
could suffer from:
Brachial plexus: Harm to the upper portion of the arm that can cause weakness, muscle paralysis,
and a chronic burning sensation.
Erb’s palsy: Harm to the nerves of the upper arm that can lead to loss of feeling,
general weakness, or even total paralysis of the arm
Klumpke’s palsy: Harm to the nerves in the lower arm, mainly affecting the fingers and
wrist, and possibly twisting the hand permanently into a claw-like shape.
