Columbus Shoulder Dystocia Attorneys

There are many things that can go wrong during childbirth. Obstetricians and the medical professionals who support them are trained to identify and respond to those risks. One of the risks is shoulder dystocia.

Shoulder dystocia occurs when the child's shoulder or shoulders become stuck behind the mother's pelvis during delivery. The pressure on the shoulders can cause serious damage to the brachial plexus nerve bundle that runs through the shoulder and controls the movement of the arm.

When shoulder dystocia is detected, the physician must respond promptly or risk creating a lifelong injury such as:

  • Erb's palsy
  • Klumpke's palsy
  • Complete brachial plexus injury

Those who suffer from injuries to the brachial plexus that occurred during childbirth have the right to be compensated for those injuries and the impact they have had on their lives.
