WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF BRACHIAL PLEXUS INJURIES?
Families look forward to having a child; they look forward to a beautiful experience resulting in a healthy baby. However, sometimes birth injuries occur, marring what parents hoped would be a joyous occasion and changing their lives forever. When a birth injury is caused by a needless medical error or medical negligence, you need to consult an attorney for a thorough evaluation of what actually happened (not what the doctor told you happened) and discuss the options available to you and your family moving forward. At Stecco Law, P.C., we advocate for families who are dealing with birth injuries caused by medical malpractice or neglect.
A brachial plexus injury results in substantial weakness or loss of control or movement of an affected arm that was injured during the birth process. The brachial plexus is a bundle of nerves running from the neck down to the shoulder. This birth injury often occurs as a result of shoulder dystocia during childbirth. This is when the fetus’ shoulder gets caught under the mother’s pelvic bone while it is in the birth canal and the doctor continues to try to pull the baby out causing permanent damage instead of converting to a C-section. It can also occur during breech presentation, when instead of the head presenting first which is normal, the feet emerge first from the birth canal, and there is increased pressure on the baby’s arms during delivery. This type of birth injury is more common with large babies and small mothers.
INFANT BRAIN DAMAGE RESULTING FROM BIRTH INJURY
According to Healthgrades.com, seven per 1,000 births in the United States involves a birth injury, but when it is your baby that has suffered irreversible and permanent brain damage secondary to medical malpractice or medical negligence, statistics mean little. The lifetime financial needs of a brain damaged infant or child are staggering. You need justice for the wrongdoing and financial compensation to help with the staggering life time expense. The responsible medical providers must be held accountable for the negligence that resulted in permanent injury to your baby; it is important not only in your case, but also to deter future malpractice. At Stecco Law, P.C., we have the experience and knowledge to help.

BALTIMORE, WASHINGTON, DC AND PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY CEREBRAL PALSY LAWYERS
Cerebral Palsy is a brain disorder that affects motor skills. Some Cerebral Palsy cases develop in utero of natural causes, others are caused by severe illness or infection, and some are caused negligently by oxygen deprivation or other avoidable injury during the childbirth process. Cerebral Palsy affects the nerves that control the muscles, so those that suffer from it have various kinds of permanent disabilities, including impaired fine and gross motor skills, speech and vision difficulties, learning disabilities, seizure disorders and lifetime cognitive impairments.
When the parents of a child receive the devastating diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy (CP), the parents are eager to learn if the child was born with the condition as a natural consequence of birth or if the disease was caused as a result of a medical mistake during the birth process. That is, if this life threatening condition was totally avoidable with proper obstetric and medical care. At Stecco Law, P.C., we know how devastating a birth injury is and we are prepared to sit with you, review the records and figure out what happened. We stand by our clients and guide them through the complicated process of obtaining fair and reasonable compensation for these devastating injuries and many times the work we do and the results we obtain are the difference between financial ruin and a comfortable future for the child and family.
