Causes of Injury

The brachial plexus is the set of nerves extending from the spinal cord to the neck, shoulders, and arms. When these nerves are damaged during birth, it may cause a baby to lose range of motion and even suffer partial paralysis. An infant is especially at risk of suffering brachial plexus injury during shoulder dystocia or a breech birth. In these instances, the actions a doctor takes can be a critical turning point in the health of your child during delivery.

Common causes of brachial plexus injury include:

  • Failure to react to fetal distress
  • Delayed caesarean section
  • Failure to prepare for a breech birth
  • Excessive pressure to the infant's head or neck
  • Other inadequate procedures

Damage to the brachial plexus will heal within 3 months to 2 years, and a proper recovery often requires therapy. If your doctor failed to provide proper care in any way, including those described above, you may be able to seek damages to compensate for therapy and other costs. An Atlanta attorney from our firm can help you understand your options as you face a potential medical malpractice claim.
