Shoulder Dystocia Injuries
Dedicated Birth Injury Lawyers Serving St. Louis & Nationwide
Shoulder dystocia is a very serious obstetrical complication that occurs during delivery. When this happens, the doctor must take immediate action to deliver the baby safely. If not properly assessed, shoulder dystocia can result in fractures, nerve damage, paralysis, and lack of oxygen, often leading to the development of Erb’s palsy.
