Shoulder dystocia occurs when the baby's head passes safely through the birth canal, but the shoulders are stuck or lodged behind the pelvic bone. Resulting side effects can be broken bones, delayed delivery, or a more serious shoulder damage caused by compression to the nerves.
At Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., we understand that few things are more devastating than to learn that your healthy child was injured during delivery. When negligence or physician error contributes to that injury, we are committed to holding the responsible party accountable.
