The basics of brachial plexus palsy
The brachial plexus is a system of nerves that sends signals from the spinal cord to the shoulder, arm and hand. Similar to Erb’s palsy, brachial plexus palsy refers to a condition in which these nerves are damaged, resulting in loss of feeling or paralysis in a particular arm. This condition is caused by a difficult childbirth, most commonly when the shoulders do not pass through the birth canal soon enough after the head.
Brachial plexus palsy can result in the following complications that can worsen if your child doesn’t receive the proper medical treatment:
Focusing on birth injury law as one of our areas of practice, our Tulsa personal injury lawyers can help to alleviate these issues by pursuing liable parties and holding them accountable.
Our lawyers get your child the care they need
Since many cases of brachial plexus palsy result from medical malpractice, we diligently research the facts of your case to identify the causes of the injury and to determine whether standard care of duty was performed. Our ultimate goal is to hold medical professionals accountable for injury. We fight to ensure that you get the money necessary for:
- Medical care. You will most likely be responsible for a lifetime of medical expenses for your child. We persevere to get you this compensation to improve your child’s ability to cope with the condition.
- Emotional damages. Most parents and children will suffer some form of emotional hardship as a result of the condition. We secure these damages to help compensate for your suffering.
Our experienced Oklahoma City personal injury attorneys are devoted to providing you with the best service possible for a brighter future. We also offer legal services for birth injuries causing Erb’s palsy and cerebral palsy.
