Houston Infant Shoulder Dystocia Attorney
Your Baby Shouldn’t Suffer From Shoulder Dystocia
Shoulder dystocia occurs when a baby’s shoulder gets caught against the pelvic bone after its head has emerged from the birth canal. Doctors have a number of maneuvers they are able to perform to dislodge the baby’s shoulder in this situation.
However, if they fail to execute these maneuvers properly or if they fail to recognize the problem and put more pressure on the baby’s neck in trying to move it through the birth canal, this can result in serious problems such as Erb’s palsy, a broken arm or collarbone, or lack of oxygen, potentially resulting in cerebral palsy. If you believe your baby’s shoulder dystocia was caused by doctor error, you need to consult with a Houston lawyer familiar with this type of medical negligence.

Potential Issues Involving Shoulder Dystocia
Shoulder dystocia may occur when the mother has diabetes, is overweight or when the baby is larger than can easily move through her birth canal. It can also occur as part of the birth process when none of these factors exist. If doctors fail to act or react properly, your baby’s life may be permanently affected.
Our attorneys consult with medical professionals to determine whether your baby’s injury was caused by medical negligence. We put all of our resources into helping right the wrong that was done to you and your family.
