Nerve Damage / Paralysis


No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing

Nerve Damage and Paralysis

Pregnancy and childbirth are traumatic for a woman’s body. But, with modern medicine, permanent injuries are rare. Unfortunately, a doctor’s negligence during delivery may cause the mother severe nerve damage with devastating results.

Instead of enjoying your child’s first few days of life, you may experience excruciating pain and disability. Your injuries may keep you from caring for your newborn and may force you to undergo surgery. At its worst, you may never recover your full health.

Searcy Denney understands the heartbreak of birth-related injuries to the mother, child and entire family. Our medical malpractice attorneys work aggressively to hold health care providers responsible for nerve injuries and other birth-related injuries. Our Florida paralysis attorneys have the resources and knowledge to fight corporate hospitals that failed to facilitate a safe childbirth. Drawing on over 40 years of experience, our firm helps you get the funds for medical care and assistance with daily living to aid in your recovery. We consult with our extensive network of experts and we calculate the long-term consequences of your injuries.

Femoral Nerve Dysfunction

Debilitating nerve damage may result from prolonged pressure or entrapment on the femoral nerve during vaginal delivery. The femoral nerve signals the leg muscles to move the hips and legs. Injury to the nerve can hinder the ability to walk and cause numbness in the leg and foot. Some women may require a wheelchair or walker for weeks or months after labor.

Lumbosacral Plexus Injury

An improperly placed epidural during a C-section or vaginal birth can cause injury to the lumbosacral plexus, which is the network of nerves that control movement and sensation in the legs. Damage to these nerves can cause weakness, numbness, tingling and burning as well as shooting or stabbing pain.

Pelvic Floor Damage

If the mother is particularly small or the baby too big, excessive pressure can overstretch the genital tract and the pelvic floor muscles. As a result, women may suffer urinary incontinence and genital prolapse, a condition in which the vaginal canal protrudes from the vaginal opening.

Perineal Tear

A negligently performed episiotomy may fail to protect the mother from serious perineal injury. Superficial tearing of the vagina is common during delivery and may cause only minor, temporary problems. Third and fourth-degree perineal tears, however, can result in devastating nerve and muscle damage. In the most severe cases, the tears penetrate the anal sphincter, causing incontinence, sexual dysfunction, numbness and pain.

Recover Compensation for Nerve Damage

Childbirth is typically an exciting, happy time. Sadly, an obstetric mistake during labor can cause irreversible harm. Learn more about recovering damages for nerve damage that you or your baby suffered during childbirth.
