Infant Shoulder Dystocia Lawsuit

Shoulder Dystocia is Preventable

When the shoulder of an infant is lodged against the mother´s pelvic bone after the head has come through, the baby may suffer from shoulder dystocia. Your medical professional should be well-trained to release the baby´s shoulder by using a variety of techniques.

Unfortunately, sometimes the techniques are used incorrectly or the doctor does not identify that there is an issue and increases pressure on the baby´s neck in an attempt to pull it through. This can cause severe complications such as Erb´s palsy, broken bones or the baby may suffer from a lack of oxygen causing cerebral palsy. If your baby has suffered shoulder dystocia due to a negligent mistake, an experienced Houston attorney can assist you with your potential lawsuit.
