Strong Representation in Brachial Plexus Injury Cases
What is shoulder dystocia? It is a complication that can develop during birth involving difficulty delivering the baby when his or her shoulder becomes stuck behind the mother's pelvic bone. There are specialized techniques that every delivery room doctor learns to handle these types of situations. All too often, however, the delivery is mishandled and the child suffers as a result.
The primary concern in these cases is getting the child delivered as soon as possible. Failure to do so can deprive the child of oxygen that could result in permanent brain damage. But delivery must be done correctly in order to avoid other injuries. If the doctor does not take the correct steps to dislodge the child's shoulder, it could result in a brachial plexus injury that could leave the child without the use of his or her arm for life.
In either case, the child is almost certainly facing a lifetime of hardship. If your child has suffered any kind of injury due to the doctor's mishandling of shoulder dystocia, you should seek the advice of an experienced Texas birth injury lawyer as soon as possible.
