Brachial Plexus Injury
Brachial plexus injury is a type of birth injury that is sustained when the nerves extending through the neck and the shoulder into the arm are damaged, stretched or severed completely. Brachial plexus injuries may result from
medical malpractice in some cases if an obstetrician, doctor or nurse fails to provide proper treatment during the childbirth process and this causes the child to sustain this type of injury. Permanent
paralysis, weakness or paralysis in the arm are the symptoms associated with brachial plexus injury, and depending on the extent of damage and treatment options available, a child may never fully recover.
Seeking justice with the help of an Oklahoma City medical malpractice attorney will enable you to hold the responsible doctor accountable for his or her actions while seeking financial compensation that will cover your child's medical bills, surgery, physical therapy and other treatment. Because these claims have the potential to be highly technical in nature and are often complex, it is important to involve a lawyer with experience in birth injury and malpractice cases in particular.
