Brachial Plexus Injury

Atlanta Brachial Plexus Injury Attorney

Brachial Plexus Birth Injuries in Atlanta

The brachial plexus is a network of nerves which extend from the spine to the shoulders, arms and hands. A baby who suffers injury to this area of the body during birth may require invasive surgery and physical therapy, while others are left with a lifetime of full or partial disability. If an obstetrician's negligence is at fault for your child's brachial plexus injury, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. The Tolson Firm, LLC represents families who seek compensation for medical malpractice, and we invite you to our office for an in-depth consultation with an Atlanta medical malpractice attorney who can advise you of your legal options and help you begin work on a claim. In over 17 years of practice, we have successfully litigated dozens of multi-million dollar cases on behalf of our clients, and are dedicated to achieving the best possible results.

Shoulder dystocia is a leading cause of brachial plexus injuries. It occurs when the child's shoulders become stuck against the mother's pubic symphysis, requiring maneuvers to dislodge the baby's body. Injuries to the brachial plexus may occur due to errors in performing such maneuvers, as well as during normal delivery if the doctor uses excessive force in pulling the baby out.

Brachial Plexus Injury Lawyer in Atlanta

Brachial plexus injuries may involve a stretch in the nerve fiber, as well as tearing from the spinal cord or along the nerve channel. Even when the injury heals, the scar tissue may disrupt nerve signals from the brain to the affected limb. The child may suffer paralysis as in Erb's palsy, leading to a future of disability, reduced earning power and loss of ability to enjoy life. Do not hesitate to seek our help if you believe that your child's birth injury could have been avoided. We will fight to help you recover the largest settlement possible.
