Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in peripheral nerve injury Mr Tom Quick provides an insight into brachial plexus injuries in the context of spinal cord injuries and discussed whether damage to the nerves can come about after primary trauma.

Interviewed by Emma Lyons, Personal Injury Senior Associate at Stewarts.

He examines how injury to the brachial plexus is often overlooked, what the main symptoms are and what treating clinicians, case managers, carers and family members need to look out for. Mr Quick also covered the treatment that is currently on offer (and in development) for injuries to the brachial plexus.
