Shoulder dystocia stems from complications during childbirth, often when a child’s head emerges but the shoulders require additional maneuvers to complete the delivery. If your child, or that of someone you love, has been diagnosed with shoulder dystocia, it is possible to obtain compensation for the birth injury. The Oklahoma City shoulder dystocia attorneys at Hasbrook & Hasbrook can help you get every penny you deserve.
In the United States, shoulder dystocia occurs in 30,000 deliveries each year. Medical malpractice and/or negligence is not involved in every instance. When it is, however, the malpractice or negligence typically involves using improper steps or excessive force to dislodge the shoulders. The sad truth is that medical professionals do make mistakes, and the results can be catastrophic for the victim’s loved ones, not just emotionally, but financially as well. Caring for a child with shoulder dystocia is expensive. If the shoulder dystocia was caused by improper and negligent actions taken by the medical professionals and/or hospital responsible for delivering your child, you deserve justice and financial compensation.
