How does a Brachial Plexus injury occur?

The brachial plexus refers to a leash of nerves that stems from the base of the neck, leading across the shoulders and into the arm.

A brachial plexus injury can occur to these nerves during childbirth if the baby’s shoulder becomes stuck behind the symphysis pubis during an obstetric emergency. Since the baby’s chest is compressed in this situation, its ability to breathe is restricted.

Midwives and obstetricians have a window of up to 10 minutes (or fewer, for a distressed baby) to deliver the child before their risk of sustaining brain damage or dying becomes serious.

If the baby’s head is pulled too hard during this time, then the nerves of the brachial plexus could become bruised, stressed or completely torn, which can cause significant problems in the future, requiring surgery or physiotherapy to fix it.

If you or a loved one has suffered brachial plexus injury as a result of substandard medical treatment involving obstetric negligence, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim.
