Shoulder Dystocia – Birth Injury Attorney in California
Shoulder dystocia refers to a scenario where the baby’s head is delivered while the remainder of the baby’s body is trapped inside the mother. This is because the shoulders of the baby are stuck inside the body of the mother. For many different reasons, this situation can happen, including:
- Larger baby than normal (macrosomia)
- Mother pregnant with more than one baby
- Similar delivery problems in past
- Pre-existing medical condition for mother, including:
Experienced doctors know how to recognize such warning signs and take corrective action to protect the health and well-being of the mother and child. That’s why many doctors choose to deliver the baby through a cesarean section (C-section) instead of vaginal birth.
Unfortunately, some doctors disregard such warning signs and do not conduct a C-section or other medical procedures that might have prevented your child from getting an injury to the shoulder dystocia.
You have the right to demand more money from the doctor or hospital that delivered your child than the offer you are likely to receive. If they refuse to cooperate, you can file a lawsuit against them and bring them to court.
