Houston Shoulder Dystocia Attorneys

Shoulder dystocia and Erb's palsy are injuries that should never happen when medical professionals are paying attention.

Shoulder dystocia is an obstetric emergency that occurs in child birth when a baby's shoulder is stuck behind the mother's pelvic bone. Only swift action and proper maneuvers by a doctor can avoid serious complications for the newborn, especially when the baby has a high birth weight. This can usually be recognized early on. It also opens up the possibility for forcep injuries.

Erb's palsy is a nerve injury that can impair the movement of a baby's arm, shoulder and hand. This condition often occurs when too much force is applied when removing the baby from the birth canal.

When a delivery room doctor fails to detect the risk factors for these possibilities or their imminent threat and follow through, he or she can be held accountable for medical malpractice.

We know that we can't turn back the clock and undo these birth injuries. The law, however, provides the mechanism to hold medical professionals accountable while providing families compensation to ideally heal. We are ready to help you do both.
