Brachial Plexus Injuries
Fighting For Children With Brachial Plexus Injuries

The birth of a child is a joyous occasion filled with love and hope. Unfortunately, this precious moment can take a sad turn when complications arise. Birth injuries are particularly trying for parents and families.

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid in Naperville help parents after injuries occur. With ample knowledge and experience, our firm helps parents seek compensation and justice after their children are injured at birth.

What Is Brachial Plexus?

The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that extends from the spinal cord. These nerves are important, as they are responsible for delivering messages from the brain to the arm, hand and shoulder. An injury to the brachial plexus can result in issues with movement and sensation.

What causes a Brachial Plexus Injury?

Brachial plexus injuries commonly happen during birth when baby’s shoulder gets stuck in the birth canal and the doctor negligently applies too much force and traction to the baby’s head during delivery. When that happens, the nerves become stretched, damaged or even tear. Brachial plexus injuries typically involve a large baby because they are more likely to get stuck during delivery. There are four main types of brachial plexus injuries, which can occur in different parts of the nerves.

The four main types are:

1. Neuropraxia: This is the most common type of brachial plexus injury, and is a stretch injury that results in a shock to the nerves.

2. Neuroma: This injury occurs when the nerves stretch and often results in scar tissue.

3. Rupture: This occurs when the nerve tears. It does not typically heal on its own.

4. Avulsion: This injury occurs when the nerves tear directly away from the spinal cord.

Dedicated to Assisting Parents

Brachial plexus injuries can have a long-term impact on your child. The severity of the injury will determine the treatment options and possibility to recover. We charge no fees unless we take your case and earn positive results.
