What Is Brachial Plexus Palsy?
Brachial plexus palsy is a condition that occurs when the nerves in the shoulder are damaged. This damage can occur during childbirth, and it can cause paralysis of the arm and hand. In some cases, the damage is permanent, and the victim will never regain full use of their arm.
How Does It Happen?
Brachial plexus palsy usually occurs during a difficult delivery. The baby’s shoulder can get stuck behind the mother’s pubic bone, and this can put pressure on the nerves in the shoulder. If the pressure is not relieved, the nerves can be stretched or torn.
Who Is Liable?
If your child has been diagnosed with brachial plexus palsy, you may be wondering who is responsible. In most cases, the liable parties will be the physician or medical staff who were responsible for your care during childbirth. If they were negligent in their care, they may be held liable for any injuries that occurred as a result.
