Wichita Brachial Plexus Injury Attorney

Even with today’s modern technology, births are not always easy. One of the most common complications happens when a baby’s shoulder gets wedged against the mother’s pubic bone. This complication is called shoulder dystocia, and is a problem that requires training and a delicate touch to solve. Unfortunately, some doctors panic and resort to force to free the baby, resulting in injuries to the baby’s fragile brachial plexus nerves.

The brachial plexus is a bundle of nerves controlling sensation and motor functions in the limbs and face. Damage to the brachial plexus can cause any one of several conditions such as Erb’s Palsy (paralysis of the arm or shoulder), Klumpke’s Palsy (paralysis of the hand or forearm), or Horner’s Syndrome (partial facial paralysis).

If the brachial plexus is only minorly injured, a child can recover fully or over time with therapy and surgeries. With more serious damage, however, a child may permanently lose all function of the afflicted limb. If your child suffered any damage at all due to a doctor’s negligence, contact a Wichita injury attorney as soon as possible.
