Shoulder Dystocia Legal Services in Cleveland Over the Last Two Decades

A childbirth event like shoulder dystocia is an often-catastrophic birthing complication in which the infant's head is delivered but the shoulder is caught below the mother's pubic symphysis or pubic bone. Shoulder dystocia often causes fractures, Erb's palsy, Klumpke's palsy and fetal asphyxia.

Recent Cases Illustrate Our Effectiveness in Handling Shoulder Dystocia Cases

  • Our client's child became stuck in the birth canal when her shoulder wedged behind her mother's pubic bone. Misuse of forceps and other improper delivery techniques during the delivery resulting in permanent neurological damage, including Erb's palsy. Our client's child has had multiple surgeries and will require medical and psychological care into the indefinite future. Our representation resulted in a settlement amount of $850,000.
  • Our client carried excessive pregnancy weight gain for her gestational age. Though a large baby was consequently anticipated, and though our client experienced a protracted second stage of labor, no C-section was offered. Instead, the delivering practitioner called for the McRoberts' position with suprapubic pressure and did not call for assistance. Due to delivery errors, our client's child was born with permanent neurological damage including both Erb's and Klumpke's palsies, and required attendant surgeries and the need for lifelong care. Our representation resulted in a settlement amount of $1.1 million.
