Weston Brachial Palsy Attorney
Let Us Help You Seek Justice
The brachial plexus is an intricate network of nerves located between the neck and shoulders. These nerves control the motor function in the shoulder, chest, arms, and hands, and controls feeling in the upper limbs. During some births, a child can sustain serious injury to the brachial plexus. Brachial palsy is an injury that occurs in about 1 to 3 out of every 1,000 births. The nerves of the brachial plexus can be stretched, compressed, or torn in a difficult delivery.
If your child was injured as the result of medical malpractice, give our skilled Weston birth injury attorneys a call. Rash Mueller is a firm dedicated to helping the victims of personal injury seek compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation, and pain and suffering.
How Does Brachial Palsy Affect a Child?
Injuries could occur in part or all of the brachial plexus, but damage to different areas will cause different results. The upper brachial plexus affects muscles of the shoulder and elbow, while the lower brachial plexus affects muscles of the forearm and hand. Damage to one of these areas could lead to weak or dysfunctional nerves. Some damage can even cause the child to have difficulty breathing.
Types of Brachial Palsy
These injuries are categorized according to the kind of nerve injury and pattern of nerves involved; however, there are four main types of damage.
The nerve is stretched, but not torn. This is the most common form and usually leads to recovery in 3 months.
The nerve is torn but not where it attaches to the spine. This is a relatively common injury and may need surgery.
The nerve roots are torn from the spinal cord. This happens in 10% to 20% of cases, and it cannot be surgically repaired directly. This injury can also affect breathing and cause droopy eyelids.
The nerve has tried to heal, but scar tissue is interfering with nerve function. This injury may require surgery.

I can’t thank David Rash enough for everything he has done for me! Not only did he go out of his way to make sure I got everything I deserved, David was very caring and polite. He went out of his way to keep me informed and just to check in on my health. He’s a good guy and very very good at what he does! A+! If you want someone that actually cares, go with Rash Mueller. Thanks again David.- Jordan
When I say..you’ve reached the right people..ur lucky to be in contact with them!! Although they couldn’t help me with my case..Leading up to the decision lori kept in contact, showed empathy, was straight forward with all detail! Lori told me more than my own drs or the hospital did..I have closure because of HER! So I still won! My case was complicated to move forward due to other reasons..but she ain’t never let me down when speaking to her! She speaks to you as if she knew you forever! I appreciate this firm so much because before they say NO..they try, the listen and the put work in!!! Thank you guys so much for everything!- Adrian B.
From the first phone conversation with Lori, to the first time meeting with David and Jeff, all the way through and to the conclusion of my case, I felt as if these people truly cared about what happened to me. They didn’t just see a potential “case”. They were upset with my situation. They wanted to help. Through the years that this whole process takes, I have gotten to know them a bit better, and they have gotten to know me. I now consider them less “my legal team”, and more a part of my extended family, whether they realize it, or like it, or not. I so appreciate their kindness, genuine compassion, and “got my back” attitude. I hope you are never in a situation to need these folks, but if you ever are, I highly recommend talking to them and seeing if it’s a right fit for all.- Joel F.
