Shoulder dystocia is one of a number of birth injuries that can be easily prevented. While there are situations in which injuries from shoulder dystocia are unavoidable, many of them are caused by negligence on the part of the obstetrician, nurses or other medical staff. If your child has suffered due to shoulder dystocia, the negligent parties should be held accountable.
At Drazin and Warshaw, P.C., our Red Bank, NJ medical malpractice attorneys have handled many shoulder dystocia cases. Our law firm has more than 70 years of experience in medical malpractice cases and many verdicts and settlements to our name. We use the in-depth medical knowledge we have acquired over these years to clearly explain the long-term effects these injuries have on the child, as well as the family, to the defense or to a jury should your case go to trial.
Our firm has the necessary resources to put toward every case we handle. Our lawyers build lasting relationships with our clients and gain a full understanding of how all family members are affected by the injury to their child.
Because we only bring legitimate claims of negligence against the New Jersey medical establishment, our cases are taken very seriously by the opposition. This can potentially have a positive effect on pretrial negotiations. However, if we feel that our clients are being unfairly treated, we have no fear of bringing their cases to court.
Shoulder dystocia happens when an infant’s shoulders are caught behind the mother’s pelvic bone during delivery. In order to avoid damaging the baby’s brachial plexus nerves, a doctor should perform Zavanelli’s maneuver, McRoberts’ maneuver or Wood’s screw maneuver. Failure to recognize shoulder dystocia or properly execute one of the these maneuvers can result in Erb’s palsy, cerebral palsy, Klumpke’s paralysis, brain damage and other complications. Our attorneys scrutinize the actions of doctors and identify negligence associated with shoulder dystocia and birth injuries.
We feel that fighting giants will never go out of style. Not only do you and your child benefit, forcing doctors and hospitals to evaluate their procedures, training and equipment may also prevent this tragedy from happening to other families in the future.
