Brachial Neuritis Injury Lawyer, Laws and Compensation
Brachial neuritis is an injury caused by the inflammation of one or more of the nerves in the arm. It can be extremely painful and may require medical treatment and even surgery to correct. If you've suffered a brachial neuritis injury caused by someone else's negligence, it may be possible to file a lawsuit against them and seek compensation for your damages.
What is a Brachial Neuritis Injury?
Brachial neuritis typically occurs when there is damage to the brachial plexus—the bundle of nerves that runs from the neck down the arm through the shoulder area. Several factors, such as trauma, physical strain, or an infection, can cause this type of nerve damage. It can also occur due to medical malpractice, such as improper injections or other treatments involving pressure on these nerves.

Cheryl suffered SIRVA (shoulder injury related to vaccine administration) following a flu shot. Her vaccine injury claim was filed in the VICP by vaccine lawyer Max Muller where she obtained a settlement for her injury, lost wages and out of pocket expenses.
What Are the Symptoms of Brachial Neuritis?
Brachial neuritis can cause a wide range of symptoms, including severe pain, weakness, and numbness in the affected area. It may also cause difficulty with movement or coordination and muscle spasms. In some cases, swelling or discoloration may occur in the area where the nerve is damaged.
Common Brachial Neuritis Side Effects
Brachial neuritis, also known as traumatic brachial plexus neuropathy, is a disorder that affects the arm's range of motion, causing stabbing pain and muscle weakness. Although this condition can be debilitating, treatments are available to help manage the symptoms. Common side effects from brachial neuritis can include:
- Burning pain in the shoulder and upper arm muscles
- Twitching or tingling in the fingers and hands
- Diminishing grip strength in the affected arm
- Becoming fatigued after using certain muscles
In some cases, patients may also experience numbness or loss of sensation along their affected nerves. To get the necessary support and treatment, you must speak with your physician if you experience any of these symptoms.
Diagnosing and Treating Brachial Neuritis
Diagnosing and treating brachial neuritis is a complex process. It involves accurate identification of the condition, assessing its severity, tracking the progression, and providing appropriate treatment.
Diagnostic procedures typically include medical imaging such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for identifying nerve damage. Electrodiagnostics such as electromyography and nerve conduction studies are useful in confirming the diagnosis.
Treatment can vary depending on the severity and may include pain management, physical therapy to restore range of motion, or even surgery to treat complications such as compartment syndrome. Patients can benefit from follow-up sessions with specialists to monitor symptom progression, review treatments, or make adjustments.
Ultimately, promptly and comprehensively diagnosing and treating brachial neuritis can help alleviate pain and complications, so it's important to consult with a doctor immediately if experiencing symptoms.
