Weston Klumpke’s Palsy Attorney
Our Birth Injury Lawyers Can Help You Seek Compensation
During birth, several types of injuries could occur to the brachial plexus, which is a cluster of nerves that control the upper arms and shoulders. Klumpke’s palsy is a type of brachial palsy that affects newborns after the 1st thoracic nerve (T1) and 8th cervical nerve (C8) are injured before or after they have joined to form the lower trunk. This type of injury can happen during a difficult vaginal delivery and can later trigger Horner’s syndrome, which is a disruption of the nerve pathway from the brain to the face and eye on one side of the body.
If your child was injured by a negligent delivery, talk to our skilled Weston medical malpractice attorneys about your case as soon as possible. Rash Mueller can provide you with trusted and compassionate legal counsel. Our team is dedicated to helping people seek compensation from negligent and incompetent medical professionals.

Klumpke’s palsy can affect the hand’s intricate muscles and the flexors of the wrist and fingers. Depending on the type of injury, the results can be mild or severe. The most devastating physical manifestation of Klumpke’s palsy is “claw hand,” where the affected forearm tends to lie flat, and the wrist and fingers are tightened.
Other symptoms can include the following:
- Severe pain
- Drooping eyelids
- No feeling/sensation in the affected arm/hand
- Atrophy of the muscles
- Stiff joints
- Weakness or lack of ability to use specific muscles of the shoulder, arm, or hand
- Limp/paralyzed arm
- C8/T1 Dermatome distribution numbness
In many cases, a child can recover on their own with a 90% to 100% return of arm and hand function; however, in severe cases, the consequences can last for years or even a lifetime.
