Birth Injury

We represented a pregnant woman who felt unusual pain shortly before going into labor. Her doctor refused her a Caesarean section. In the process of delivering the child a shoulder dystocia was encountered. The physician failed to properly deliver the child or diagnose the shoulder dystocia. As a result, the child suffered a brachial plexus injury or Erb’s Palsy. We filed suit against the attending physician and despite his contention that he had not departed from the standard of care, we recovered $400,000 on the child’s behalf.
