Brachial Plexus Injuries
Seek Experienced Legal Representation from Our Weston Medical Malpractice Attorney
Our brachial plexus is an important bundle of nerves that extend out from our spinal cord, which controls the neurological functions in our hands, arms, and shoulders. When these nerves are damaged, it impairs the muscles which lift and bend the arm or straighten and bring the arm down. If your infant suffered brachial plexus injury during birth, it is possible that it was caused by medical malpractice.
With 40 years of collective legal experience handling medical malpractice claims of all types and levels of severity in Weston, Rash Mueller is committed to helping you recover your child’s entitled compensation. Our Weston medical malpractice attorney can review your case and determine all of your legal options in order to get the results you deserve.
How Can Brachial Plexus Be Caused By Negligence?
During delivery – on occasion – a baby’s shoulders become stuck, defined as shoulder dystocia. This can occur due to various circumstances, such as placing too much pressure on the infant’s head during delivery or failing to prevent the shoulder lodging. Sometimes, these circumstances cannot be avoided or anticipated. While your doctor may not cause harm on purpose, there may be precautions which weren’t taken, when they should have been.
The following are common causes of injuries by healthcare providers:
- Failure to recognize unusual fetal positioning
- Failure to note a child’s size in the uterus
- Failure to recognize or attend to the umbilical cord being compressed or entrapped
- Failure to order Cesarean section in a timely and prompt manner
- Misuse of labor-stimulating drugs
- Poor care and resuscitation of a newborn after birth
