Shoulder Dystocia Injuries in Weston
Our Firm Can Protect Your Child's Well-Being
Although not an injury itself, shoulder dystocia is the root cause of many other birth injuries. This problem occurs during delivery, when the baby's shoulders get trapped behind the mother's pubic bones. As a result, numerous injuries can occur, including:
- Fractured clavicle
- Brachial plexus nerve injuries
- Hypoxic brain injury
- Fractured humerus
It is estimated that 20 percent of babies who experience shoulder dystocia will have a temporary or permanent injury. Shoulder dystocia is preventable, but many doctors make unfortunate mistakes that can cause or aggravate injuries to the baby. If you or your child experienced any complications related to shoulder dystocia, it is imperative that you retain a medical malpractice attorney. Our firm represents individuals throughout Weston and can ensure that your legal needs are met.
How is Medical Malpractice Linked to Shoulder Dystocia?
Certain factors can increase the likelihood of shoulder dystocia, such as maternal obesity, post-term pregnancy, and operational vaginal delivery. When these factors are present, obstetricians must be especially aware of the possibility of shoulder dystocia. Negligence by the medical staff is serious and can lead to permanent injuries caused by shoulder dystocia.
In instances of shoulder dystocia, medical malpractice can occur in the following ways:
- Failure to respond to complications in time
- Failure to deliver the baby quickly enough, causing hypoxia
- Excessive pulling or twisting of the baby
- Lack of pre-birth planning
Many shoulder dystocia injuries resolve themselves, but others permanently impact the child's health. Whether your child's injuries are temporary or permanent, you should not have to bear this burden alone. Compensation from the responsible parties can help to cover medical bills and lost wages, among other necessary items.

I can’t thank David Rash enough for everything he has done for me! Not only did he go out of his way to make sure I got everything I deserved, David was very caring and polite. He went out of his way to keep me informed and just to check in on my health. He’s a good guy and very very good at what he does! A+! If you want someone that actually cares, go with Rash Mueller. Thanks again David.- Jordan
When I say..you’ve reached the right people..ur lucky to be in contact with them!! Although they couldn’t help me with my case..Leading up to the decision lori kept in contact, showed empathy, was straight forward with all detail! Lori told me more than my own drs or the hospital did..I have closure because of HER! So I still won! My case was complicated to move forward due to other reasons..but she ain’t never let me down when speaking to her! She speaks to you as if she knew you forever! I appreciate this firm so much because before they say NO..they try, the listen and the put work in!!! Thank you guys so much for everything!- Adrian B.
From the first phone conversation with Lori, to the first time meeting with David and Jeff, all the way through and to the conclusion of my case, I felt as if these people truly cared about what happened to me. They didn’t just see a potential “case”. They were upset with my situation. They wanted to help. Through the years that this whole process takes, I have gotten to know them a bit better, and they have gotten to know me. I now consider them less “my legal team”, and more a part of my extended family, whether they realize it, or like it, or not. I so appreciate their kindness, genuine compassion, and “got my back” attitude. I hope you are never in a situation to need these folks, but if you ever are, I highly recommend talking to them and seeing if it’s a right fit for all.- Joel F.
