Welcoming a newborn child into the world should be one of the most joyous occasions for your family. And while dangerous complications can occur in the delivery room, doctors are trained to handle those situations. If a doctor doesn’t properly employ training and trusted techniques during a complicated labor, there can be devastating consequences for both mother and child. One of the most serious conditions that can occur in this situation is shoulder dystocia.
Shoulder dystocia occurs when, after the baby’s head is delivered, the shoulder of the infant fails to clear the mother’s pelvis. While not every occurrence of this condition is due to medical malpractice, if your child is suffering from this condition, you should contact a shoulder dystocia lawyer as soon as possible to understand your legal rights.
Our team of experienced personal injury attorneys can help you find out what went wrong in the delivery room and counsel you on whether you should file a shoulder dystocia lawsuit. If negligence was a factor in your situation, your family and your child deserve fair treatment and compensation.
