What is a Brachial Plexus Injury Lawsuit?

by | Apr 26, 2023 | Birth Injuries, Medical Malpractice | 0 comments

A brachial plexus injury lawsuit is a way to seek justice and compensation on behalf of a child who was harmed due to medical negligence. Brachial plexus injuries include damage to the nerves that run from the spinal cord, along the neck, and to the shoulder. Our firm has decades of experience with brachial plexus injuries and can assist you through the legal process.

How Do I Know if Medical Malpractice Caused Brachial Plexus Palsy?

If a healthcare professional used too much force with their hands when delivering your baby or they used forceps with too much force and that caused your baby’s brachial plexus palsy, then you could have a medical malpractice lawsuit on your hands. Additionally, if you needed a C-section and the healthcare professional didn’t perform one or waited until it was too late, and then delivered the baby by force, then it might qualify as medical malpractice.

How Much Will I Receive from a Brachial Plexus Palsy Settlement?

If medical malpractice did occur, then you could receive a settlement for your baby’s brachial plexus palsy. You could win damages for:

  • Medical bills
  • Loss of companionship and enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Future medical care
  • Loss of earning capacity
