Baltimore Birth Injury Lawyer for Brachial Plexus
Fighting for Your Rights
Infants are extremely vulnerable to a number of infections, illnesses, and ailments, one of the most common being a brachial plexus injury. In the most severe cases, a traumatic brachial plexus nerve injury is permanent--making it one of the most catastrophic birth injuries possible. If your child has suffered from a brachial plexus injury and you fear it is because of the negligence of a medical professional, look no further than Brown & Barron, LLC for Baltimore birth injury lawyers who will treat your case with the urgency, compassion, and dedication it requires.
Brachial plexus injuries are complicated to treat, and they generally occur due to negligence, excessive force, or carelessness during the labor and delivery process. Primarily affecting the baby’s nerves in his or her shoulder, arm, wrist, hand, fingers and spine, this injury occurs when these vital nerves are stretched, compressed, or torn from their roots. Victims of a brachial plexus injury will encounter a lifetime of physical and emotional challenges and difficulties, including a number of repair surgeries and associated hospitalizations, as well as lengthy rehabilitation efforts involving various treatments and therapies.
Doctors and nurses who fail to treat a baby with care during childbirth, or otherwise fail to schedule and perform a timely C-section in an effort to prevent a traumatic and permanent brachial plexus injury, are generally held responsible for these avoidable injuries. Brachial plexus injuries may also be due to a lack of fetal monitoring during the course of labor and delivery, as well as the improper use of forceps or a vacuum. Our legal team can investigate the circumstances surrounding your child’s birth injury in detail, ensuring that we get all of the information necessary to hold at-fault party responsible for their negligent treatment and care.
