Shoulder Dystocia Injuries Resulting from Delivery Shoulder Dystocia Lawyers NYC

A shoulder dystocia related injury can result from stretching of the shoulder area during delivery. When a baby becomes stuck on the mother’s pelvis during a delivery in which a complication occurs, the medical staff may opt to use force in order to remove the baby from the mother’s birth canal. The use of excessive force in this process has often resulted in significant injuries for the baby following birth.

Shoulder dystocia can significantly raise the risk of the baby developing Erb’s Palsy. The more severe the shoulder dystocia, the more likely that the baby’s brachial plexus nerves may be damaged. Erb’s Palsy resulting from this injury can be a life-long sentence resulting in paralysis or reduced mobility.
