Brachial Plexus Injuries

Advocating for Birth Injury Victims

The brachial plexus is a complex network of nerves located in the arm/shoulder area. Medical research indicates that brachial plexus injuries occur about 1.03 out of every 1,000 live births. There are a variety of reasons for these types of birth injuries. For one, babies that have a larger weight at birth could be more susceptible to this type of injury because they are more likely to get stuck in the birth canal. This would require applying force to a baby's arm, shoulder or head that could result in an injury. Brachial plexus injuries can also result from a doctor using an improper delivery method that does not meet standardized procedure.

Brachial plexus injuries can also be associated with Erb's palsy, a condition that results from dystocia (abnormal or exceptionally difficult labor). In head-first deliveries, the doctor may excessively pull on the infant's shoulders, causing this type of nerve damage. Erb's palsy is arm paralysis that potentially could heal but may also require additional surgery or rehabilitative treatment to cure. If your child suffered a brachial plexus arm or shoulder injury during birth, bring your case to a San Diego medical malpractice attorney at Bostwick & Peterson by calling us today.
