A brachial plexus injury, (Erb’s Palsy, Klumpke’s Palsy) is an injury to the large network of nerves within the body called the brachial plexus running from the spinal column to the muscles in the shoulders and arms, causing the arm and hand to move. Parents often believe that their child’s brachial plexus injury was unavoidable or was a congenital birth defect. However, Erb’s or Klumpke’s Palsy is often the result of medical malpractice or medical negligence that occurs when a baby is too large and obstetricians neglect to deliver the baby via Caesarian section. Brachial Plexus Injury is often the result of shoulder dystocia in childbirth, or the lodging of a baby’s shoulder behind the mother’s pubic bone. In other cases, where medical malpractice has occurred, doctors can use too much force to deliver the baby, which results in nerve damage. Many children with Erb’s or Klumpke’s Palsy may suffer partial or total paralysis of these parts of the body.
