In brief: Can be bad
Traumatic brachial plexus injuries such as those from motor vehicle accidents cause severe weakness and paralysis of the upper extremity.
In it's worst instance, the nerve roots can be avulsed from the spinal cord causing this condition. It can require nerve transfers and complex nerve repair surgery by a specialist in this type of injury.

In brief: Brachial plexus
Mostly relates to baby inability to grasp and holds objects.
It is rarely permanent and could relate to trauma during negotiation of birth canal. Rarely is associated with obstetrical maneuvers. There is more and more scientific data suggesting that this injuries occur while in the birth canal.
