Obstetrical Medical Malpractice Settlement

The plaintiff mother gave birth to a young girl with shoulder dystocia. Plaintiff mother claims that she requested a C-section delivery but the hospital claimed that she had progressed to far and that a vaginal delivery was safe. Plaintiff mother had a prior C-section birth due to complications and hospital should have known that a vaginal delivery presented risks that could have been avoided by C-section delivery. During vaginal delivery, doctors placed excessive pressure on the baby’s shoulder and the child sustained a brachial plexus injury and resulting Erb’s Palsy. Plaintiff girl had severely limited use and development of her right arm as a result of hospital’s failures.
