Shoulder Dystocia Attorneys in Dallas

When a Failure to Perform a Timely C-Section Results in Nerve Damage

Shoulder dystocia occurs when poor fetal position or negligent delivery room error places enormous pressure on the baby's shoulder over an extended period of time. Shoulder dystocia is the mechanism by which children suffer brachial plexus injury and the resulting nerve damage.


Shoulder dystocia often occurs because of a preventable delivery room error, such as failure to perform a timely Cesarean section, complications of vaginal birth after C-section (VBAC) or when a doctor fails to appreciate the risks presented when the mother's birth canal is unusually narrow.


When a newborn suffers shoulder dystocia or another traumatic injury due to a deliver room error or other medical malpractice, the capable attorneys of Miller Weisbrod can offer sound legal advice, caring support and experienced legal representation for the family. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation and detailed case evaluation.

Understanding Shoulder Dystocia

Of all forms of medical malpractice and negligence, mistakes during labor or childbirth can lead to some of the most long lasting and devastating consequences. Simply applying too much pressure on forceps or the improper use of a vacuum extractor can result in lifelong consequences for the child and the family.


The trial lawyers of Miller Weisbrod fight for maximum compensation for victims of shoulder dystocia and other birth injuries nationwide. Our focus is on obtaining honest answers and real recovery for families whose lives have forever been altered by a preventable medical error.
