Houston Brachial Plexus Injury Lawyer

Attorneys Handling Medically Negligent Brachial Plexus Lawsuits

injury case examples

When any of the major nerves that run from the spinal cord through the neck or shoulder area of an infant are damaged this is known as brachial plexus palsy. Depending on how severe the damage is to these nerves, a child can experience numbness in the arms, hands or shoulders or lose complete function and motor skills in these areas.

In the most severe brachial plexus injury cases, the spinal cord is severed completely and paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia results. What parents need to understand is that brachial plexus injuries are preventable. It is physician, OBGYN and hospital negligence that are the cause of these preventable birth injuries.

Brachial Plexus Injury Lawsuits

Too often an infant suffers from brachial plexus, shoulder dystocia, Erb’s palsy and other serious birth injuries that are often completely preventable. These permanent injuries do not have to happen. Unfortunately, physicians will rush a delivery and use far too much force necessary or not properly take into consideration risk factors the mother may have for brachial plexus injuries. These risk factors include gestational diabetes, small pelvic size, age and higher-than-average weight gain during a pregnancy — all factors that a doctor can be well aware of prior to a birth.

The cost and care for a child who has suffered a brachial plexus injury is substantial. We are looking at a lifetime of doctor’s appointments, medications, physical therapy, special needs care and more. You should not have to burden these substantial costs, especially if there was negligence on the part of the hospital, doctors, nurses or staff. Our law firm is highly skilled in this area of the law, and our past verdicts and settlements show just how hard we fight for our birth injury clients.

Fantastic law firm! Getting our negligence case settled took longer than originally expected but in the end the results were well worth it. Mr. Hastings and his office were always professional, polite, and thorough in explaining my case to me. Bug thanks to him and his staff for helping me through this ordeal.

Gus Morton

We couldn’t have made a better choice by hiring the Hastings Law Firm to represent us. The staff was always professional but they showed real concern for our case and made it personal. If you need a great law firm, I would happily recommend them.

Ernie Wolford

Tommy is a great guy, genuinely concerned about his clients. This is evident in not only how he runs his firm but the fact that he chose to focus on medmal, something other attorneys have abandoned. If you’re looking for someone that will fight for you tooth and nail, he’s your man.


Tommy Hastings and his staff provided a much needed voice for us during our crisis. His attention to detail went beyond the scope of simply practicing law. He is honest, informative, pragmatic and communicated well with us from start to finish. In a sea full of competing attorneys, Tommy has cast a reputation for himself as the very best. I highly recommend his services.

Kellie Rhodes

Tommy Hastings went above and beyond during my crisis. He genuinely cares about his clients and delivered a straight-forward, honest method to resolve my issue as quick as possible. If you want the best of the best then look no further. You’ve found him.

Kendall Webb

I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued, my nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Tommy Hastings and his staff go above and beyond! I couldn’t have asked for a better law firm or attorney!

Joy Love

I can’t say enough great things about this law firm. The staff was friendly and courteous every step of the way. They kept me informed and explained all of my options. Tommy was amazing to work with and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my outcome. If I could give him 10 stars, I would. If you don’t go with Hastings, you are doing yourself a disservice. Highly recommend.

Misty Peterson

I would highly recommend Tommy and his law firm. He represented us in a case where a simple surgery left my mother permanently disabled. His staff was very professional and diligent and kept me well informed throughout the case. In the end we are happy with the settlement she received and feel lucky to have had Tommy as our attorney.

Earica Robert

My brother had an unnecessary surgery which left him with severe neurological issues. We called several attorneys but chose Hastings because of their focus on cases like this. While the case is still pending, we’ve already received a settlement offer that was very close to what we were looking for. Many thanks go out to Tommy and his great team!

Devin Schumacher

We’re blessed to have found the Hastings law firm. Tommy and Greg were outstanding! Both attorneys were very responsive, professional, and helpful with any questions we had about our case. Their entire staff went above and beyond to keep us updated and most of all, calm. My family feels as though we have been made (mostly) whole again. Thank you both for your hard work.
