  • Praxis: A partial tear or stretching of the nerve.

Medical malpractice and Klumpke’s Palsy

One of the most common causes of Kumpke’s Palsy on newborns is the medical negligence of the practicing physician, nurse or midwife during the delivery process. All too often individuals assisting the birthing process fail to recognize the presence of shoulder dystocia (when the shoulders of the child become lodged behind the pubic bone of the pregnant mother). Some common danger signs associated with shoulder dystocia which the practicing physician should be aware of during the delivery process include, large size of the child, prolonged labor, overweight mother, advanced maternal age, and diabetes in the mother. Instead to taking preventative measure in dislodging the child the practicing doctor will pull on the head of the fetus resulting in the stretching of the shoulder neck and upper back regions resulting in damage to the surrounding nerves and spinal column.

Common Sign and Symptoms of Klumpke’ Palsy

After the birth of a child the nurse practitioner is charged with the responsibility of testing the general heath of the newborn including testing for motor factions. In instance nurse in hospitals will attempt to downplay the magnitude of the harm your child has sustained during delivery. In many hospitals will fail to inform parent of the injuries caused by the medical malpractice of the obstetrician. In such instances it is vital to understand the common sign and symptoms associated with Klumpke Palsy. Some signs and symptoms of Klumpke Palsy are as follows

DTLA Client Review

“I honestly cannot say enough good things about Farid. I never even truly became his client, as in I never paid him a single cent, and he helped me get my case settled with my current lawyer. I had accidentally contacted Farid’s firm in an attempt to contact my lawyer, who had ignored me for months. Farid contacted me himself within minutes of me talking to a live representative of theirs online (and this was really late at night, too).”
