Louisville Brachial Plexus Injury Lawyers

Erb’s Palsy & Brachial Plexus Injuries Linked to Malpractice in Kentucky

The brachial plexus is a collection of nerves that run from the spinal cord out to the shoulders, hands, and arms. When one or more of these nerves is torn, stretched, or damaged during childbirth, the outcome is often permanent. The child may spend the rest of his or her life with a limp or paralyzed arm, numbness, or lack of muscle control.

If this personal injury was caused by negligence during birth, you have the right to seek compensation for the lifelong care your child will need. Our Louisville birth injury attorneys are dedicated to helping you get that compensation. Paul A. Casi, II has been representing the injured since 1994, and together, our attorneys have more than 38 years of combined legal experience to apply to our clients’ cases.

Do I Have a Brachial Plexus Lawsuit Case?

It is possible to sue an individual doctor or an entire hospital for medical malpractice. You may have a case of medical malpractice if your child has been injured due to the actions or inaction of a doctor or other medical professional. The brachial plexus injury lawsuit is a legal method of recovering monetary damages from the parties responsible for your child's injury.

In order to prove your Brachial Plexus case, you need to prove the following:

  1. It is important to prove that the person or facility you are suing was explicitly given responsibility for you and your child's medical care.
  2. In addition, you must prove that this person or institution committed a medical error, such as failing to perform a Cesarean section.
  3. This error must also have led to the brachial plexus injury your child now has.

What Can a Brachial Plexus Lawsuit Achieve?

Injuries to the brachial plexus may result in two things: compensation and justice. There is no reason why your child should have to live with a disability her entire life. If mistakes were made that led to her disability, someone should be held responsible.

Additionally, getting justice will protect other babies. A successful malpractice lawsuit ensures doctors and hospitals are more careful, make better decisions, and institute policies that protect children and other patients.
