Birth Injury

We represented a young woman who arrived at a District of Columbia hospital for what she thought would be a normal delivery of her baby. She did not have any known symptoms or risk factors for a shoulder dystocia presentation. Unfortunately, the physicians failed to take appropriate action upon encountering the shoulder dystocia and the child suffered a brachial plexus injury (Erb’s Palsy) during delivery. There was very limited evidence of what happened in the delivery room and all the treating physicians claimed that they had acted appropriately. We filed suit and were able to obtain a recovery of $525,000.
