Phoenix Brachial Plexus Injury Attorney
When a baby is born there are many birth injuries that can occur. One type is a brachial plexus injury that if severe enough can cause brachial plexus palsy, also known as Erb’s palsy. It occurs in about 2 in every 1,000 births. Brachial plexus is an injury that is caused by the baby’s shoulders becoming stuck against the mother’s pelvic bone and then being stretched away from the head during birth. When a baby’s head is pulled up away from the shoulders it can severely affect the surrounding nerves within the head, neck and shoulder region resulting in a lack of movement to the arms, shoulders and hands or paralysis, also known as avulsion.
