Need to Speak With A Brachial Plexus Injury Lawyer?

There is a bundle of nerves that sends signals to your shoulder, arm, and hand. Called the brachial plexus, this nerve network may be susceptible to injury during childbirth in the event of shoulder dystocia or other complications. With shoulder dystocia, the baby’s shoulder becomes stuck behind the mother’s pubic bone and requires maneuvering to completely travel through the birth canal. In this and other scenarios where the baby’s neck and shoulders are forcefully pulled or unnaturally stretched, the brachial plexus nerves may become stretched, damaged, or pulled completely from the spinal cord.

Paralysis and Erb’s palsy are consequences of a brachial plexus injury. If your child has suffered such harm, the Pittsburgh birth injury attorneys at Pribanic & Pribanic, LLC are here to help. We represent children and families whose lives have been forever altered by obstetrical malpractice. We are here to fight for justice and fair compensation on your behalf.

WHAT CAUSES BRACHIAL PLEXUS INJURIES?

Identifying the cause of your child’s brachial plexus injury will provide the foundation for your birth injury lawsuit. With our resources and knowledge of this complex field, our lawyers, investigators, medical experts, and support staff work together to determine and prove cause. Depending on the case, brachial plexus injuries may be caused during labor or delivery by:

  • Mismanagement of shoulder dystocia or breech presentation
  • Failure to recommend a C-section
  • Failure to diagnose cephalopelvic disproportion (CPD) or macrosomia, where the baby is too large to safely pass through the mother’s pelvis
  • Misuse of vacuum or forceps in an instrument-assisted delivery
  • C-section errors or malpractice

How to Sue for Birth Injuries & Malpractice

With today’s medical advancements and technology, one would think that birth injuries are a thing of the past. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Medical care is still administered by human beings, and though these people have undergone extensive training and education to become licensed medical professionals, they may make mistakes or act negligently. When they do, innocent children and parents are left to suffer the consequences.

WHAT CAUSES BIRTH INJURIES?

Some birth injuries are unavoidable. This means that even the most skilled doctor or nurse could not have prevented such an injury or condition from occurring. In other cases, however, birth injuries could have been avoided if a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional had provided an acceptable level of care. We often see birth injuries result from:

  • Delayed C-sections
  • Failures to recognize fetal distress
  • Delayed response to fetal distress
  • Medication errors
  • Mismanagement of childbirth complications
  • Misuse of forceps or vacuum
  • C-section errors

In these and other scenarios where a medical professional fails to provide treatment or care based on accepted standards, a child and family may be able to pursue financial compensation for the harm suffered. With birth injury cases, this can add up to tens of thousands or even millions of dollars in medical care, ongoing treatment, and therapy.
