Ann Arbor Brachial Plexus Attorneys
Brachial plexus injury, more commonly known as Erb’s palsy, often occurs in newborns when nerves in the shoulder and neck are ruptured or torn during birth. This can be as a result of doctors pulling on baby’s arms during birth or creating stress while the child’s shoulder is impacted. The damage suffered as a result can be temporary, or it can create a permanent physical disability.
At the law office of Bredell & Bredell, our attorneys work with Michigan families to pursue compensation when a doctor’s negligence or malpractice causes injury. Many brachial plexus injuries could and should have been avoided.
If you and your child have unnecessarily suffered, we can put experience on your side.
Knowledgeable And Reliable Birth Injury Lawyers
Medical professionals should heed warning signs that can indicate an undue risk of injury to the baby and mother during labor and delivery. Ignoring those warning signs, failing to act in a timely fashion or delaying a c-section for too long can have serious consequences for the mother and child.
Brachial plexus injuries most often occur in:
- Children over nine pounds
- Babies who are in the breech position
- Mothers who have pregnancies exceeding 40 weeks
- Mothers who have developed gestational diabetes
- Mother who have gained significant weight during pregnancy
If your child was born without the proper use of an arm or with serious nerve damage because of delivery negligence, you need to know your rights and options. Recognizing the warning signs of undue stress on mother and baby is vital, and if a birth injury is suffered because a medical professional failed to act, you may be entitled to compensation.
Our lawyers have extensive experience handling personal injury and birth injury cases. We offer a caring approach and proven record of success. If your infant has suffered nerve damage during birth, shoulder dystocia or a brachial plexus injury, Bredell & Bredell can put our knowledge and resources behind your case.
