Baby Shoulder Dystocia

Has your newborn suffered from baby shoulder dystocia? Simply put, baby shoulder dystocia is when a newborn's shoulder gets stuck during birth in the mother's pelvic area. It is a doctor's responsibility to take the necessary action to ensure safe delivery of the baby. Unfortunately, some doctor's fail to do so and injury to the nerves and shoulder occurs. Our birth trauma lawyers can help get compensation that is needed for treatment if this happened to your baby.

Do you or does someone you know need legal assistance regarding baby shoulder dystocia? Shoulder dystocia treatment may be needed! Contact our birth trauma lawyers regarding your baby's shoulder dystocia and receiving treatment today.

It is hard to tell when a baby might be at risk for shoulder dystocia, but the following are factors that may indicate a greater risk of shoulder dystocia in a baby:

  • Diabetic mothers
  • Large infants
  • Abnormally small birth passage
  • Failure to perform certain tests

Even though large babies are at a greater risk, normal weight babies are at risk for baby shoulder dystocia as well. If you feel that your baby's shoulder dystocia is due to the doctor's negligence, our birth trauma lawyers can help receive the compensation that is needed for treatment.

Usually when a shoulder dystocia occurs, a common question is raised is why wasn't a c-section performed? C-Sections are usually recommended by doctors for certain circumstances, one being that the anticipated size of the infant is very large. Not suggesting a c-section to a mother who may be giving birth to a very large infant can be negligent if the newborn ends up suffering from shoulder dystocia and may require costly treatment. If this happened to you, contact our birth trauma lawyers.
