Brachial plexus is the area where neck joins the shoulder. This area is comprised of a bundle of nerves that provide for movement and sensation to the arm, hand and fingers. If the baby’s shoulder becomes stuck on the mother’s pelvis during delivery, the nerves can be torn, stretched, or otherwise injured. Often medical malpractice may occur if the doctor employs improper maneuvers or techniques during delivery. Erbs Palsy is frequently foreseeable and preventable. Erbs Palsy can cause paralysis or loss of feeling in the arm, hand, and or shoulder.
There are a number of Erbs Palsy or Brachial Plexus injuries:
Neuropraxia/Praxis Injury – occurs when the brachial plexus nerves have been stretched or damaged but not torn. Swelling, bruising, compression, and stretching are common types of injuries. Depending on severity, the injury can resolve with time or remain permanently.
Neuroma – refers to scar tissue around the injury that prevents the nerve from interacting properly with the muscle, thus preventing normal movement and muscle control.
Rupture – means the brachial plexus nerves are torn but remain attached to the spinal column. The damage is usually permanent and surgery is needed to repair the injury.
Avulsion – the most serious injury when the nerve is actually torn and detached from the spinal column. The entire arm may be paralyzed.

This small law firm was very helpful and friendly. The car accident lawyers treat their clients very well.

When it came time to go to court, the trial attorney was aggressive fighting for the most possible. Overall excellent.
