Shoulder Dystocia occurs in less than 1% of all births according to some studies. This can lead to increased complications for the baby and the mother. You're probably suspecting negligence and asking:
  • How did this happen to my child?
  • What went terribly wrong?
  • Who will pay for all of the medical expenses?
Shoulder Dystocia is when a baby's shoulder gets caught behind the mother's pelvic bone during delivery. In this position, the baby runs the risk of stretching and potentially ripping nerves that connect the shoulder, arm, and hand to the spinal cord. This can also stop a baby from breathing - and a lack of oxygen has been known to cause brain injury.

If your child was injured during delivery from a shoulder dystocia and you think the doctor was at fault, you will need to speak to a medical malpractice attorney about the possibility of filing a claim for compensation through the courts. Cases are not clear cut as certain injuries to the baby during birth, possibly due to your condition at the time and the severity of the Dystocia, are unavoidable.
