Cincinnati, Ohio, Birth Injury Lawyers

If you were told that your newborn has a brachial plexus injury, it means that the baby's shoulder was injured during labor and delivery. Specifically, the nerves in the shoulder become stretched or torn, usually when the shoulder is caught on the mother's pelvic bone. In this type of birth injury, damage to the nerves causes partial or complete paralysis of the arm. Brachial plexus injuries are sometimes caused by negligent actions by medical providers, including physicians, nurses, midwives and anesthetists.
