Nerve Injuries Caused by New York Medical Malpractice


Common Types of Nerve Injuries Due to New York Medical Malpractice

There are many different types of nerve injuries that could be caused by New York medical malpractice.  These injuries range in the type, severity, and usual patient that it occurs.  Some of these injuries are very devastating but only temporary.  Whereas other injuries are catastrophic and usually permanent.  These can result in serious personal injuries and completely prohibit a patient from returning to the same employment and even customary and basic daily activities.  

Some common examples of nerve injuries caused by New York medical malpractice include the following:

Brachial Plexus injuries – Commonly caused to newborns during the birthing process of labor and delivery, a brachial plexus injury is an injury to the nerves from the neck extending through the shoulder and all the way down the arm.  Damage here can cause a loss of sensation or motor inability of the arm.  These injuries can also occur to adults during shoulder or arm surgeries which cause damage to the brachial plexus nerves in the arm.

Facial Nerve injuries – Also common with newborns due to excessive pressure during the brighting process, improper use of forceps or vacuum extractor, or other negligent conduct, facial nerve injuries can be caused by New York medical malpractice where the improper cuts, pulls, stitches, or other procedures are performed to the face or head which severe nerves.
