Annapolis Brachial Plexus Birth Injury Lawyers

Brachial plexus can occur when an obstetrician exerts too much pressure on a baby's head or neck during delivery. This can result in reduced mobility in the child's arm. Most brachial plexus injuries are accompanied by a condition called shoulder dystocia, in which a baby's head becomes stuck on the mother's pubic bone during delivery. This can result in oxygen deprivation and possible brain damage.

Was Your Child The Victim Of A Delivery Room Error?

Sadly, many birth injuries do not have to happen if only obstetricians provided the expected standard of care. A simple sonogram can reveal the size of a baby's head, providing an indication of potential trouble during delivery. If the mother has diabetes, a dietitian could provide blood sugar monitoring or prescribe insulin treatment to reduce the size of the baby's head.

If your child suffered a brachial plexus injury, shoulder dystocia, Erb's palsy or another injury during birth, he or she may be entitled to compensation. You should discuss your child's case with an experienced birth injury lawyer.
