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.
