One of the happiest moments in a parent's life is the birth of a child. However, if there has been a complication during the delivery process, this special moment can quickly turn into a lifelong struggle for the affected child and parents. The definition of a birth injury is damage or injury caused to a child's body in which occurred immediately before, during, or shortly after birth. Brachial Plexus is one of the most common types of birthing injuries. The brachial plexus is a group of nerves that send movement and sensory signals to the arm, hands, and shoulders. Brachial Plexus birthing injuries usually occur due to the infant's neck being pulled to one side during a difficult delivery. Oftentimes, this can then prohibit your child from being able to move, or sense anything through their arm, hand, or fingers.

Patients bringing medical malpractice claims face a daunting challenge. Medical malpractice litigation is highly complex and selecting a skilled attorney to represent your claim is important in reaching a successful resolution.
Because of the complexity of medical malpractice actions, it is important that they are pursued as soon as possible after the negligent conduct. Medical records and bills have to be gathered and reviewed by an expert to confirm the existence of negligent conduct. A lawsuit and expert report must then be filed. Of course, these things take a great deal of time, energy, and resources. Therefore, it is important for anyone who believes they have a medical malpractice claim to have their case reviewed as soon as possible.
