Brachial Plexus & Erb’s Palsy
Columbus Birth Injury Lawyers Helping You Pursue Compensation
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 negligence at the time of birth, you can seek justice and financial compensation that covers any recovery and hospital costs. Contact our Columbus birth injury attorneys at Rourke & Blumenthal today to get started.

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 which 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.
