Pittsburgh Shoulder Dystocia Injury Lawyer
Serious Injury Caused to Newborns and Doctor Negligence
Shoulder dystocia is an obstetric complication that stems from an inability for a child to be delivered naturally without the assistance of additional medical maneuvers. Often in shoulder dystocia cases, a shoulder is trapped behind the mother’s pelvis. In the worst cases, shoulder dystocia can result in permanent brachial plexus injury or mental impairment. At Hal Waldman and Associates in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, our attorneys will take a strategic approach, analyzing the facts of your case and preparing evidence to succeed in your claim.
