Texas Brachial Plexus Injury Lawyers
Attorneys Handling Medically Negligent Brachial Plexus Lawsuits
Brachial plexus palsy is a spinal cord injury caused at infancy when one or more of the major nerves running from the spinal cord along the neck or shoulder area is injured. This type of injury can result in numbness in the arms, hands or shoulders or, if more severe, a complete loss of function and motor skills in these areas.
In the worst cases, the spinal cord is severed completely resulting in paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia. Tragically, brachial plexus injuries result from medical negligence of the physician or OBGYN and are entirely preventable.

Brachial Plexus Injury Lawsuits
Tragically, infants suffer far too often from absolutely preventable birth injuries such as brachial plexus, shoulder dystocia and Erb´s palsy. These injuries are severe and permanent and should not occur. Sometimes, a mother may be at a higher risk for brachial plexus injuries due to factors such as gestational diabetes, a small pelvic size, age and higher than average weight gain during pregnancy. Often medical practitioners perform deliveries without informing themselves of the mother´s risk factors. Other times, deliveries are performed far too quickly and with too much force.
The costs of ongoing care and provision for a child who has a brachial plexus injury are significant. The child may require doctor´s appointments, medication, physical therapy and general living care for the rest of his or her life. If the cause of the injury is medical negligence, these costs should not be your burden. Our firm has a wealth of experience and knowledge in this highly complex area of law. We have a strong record of obtaining successful verdicts and settlements for our clients.
