Houston Brachial Plexus Injury Attorney
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.
