Birth Injuries Causing Serious Injuries: Shoulder Dystocia
Shoulder dystocia is an extremely serious and even life-threatening injury that can occur during the birthing process. If the baby is unable to pass through the birth canal and the shoulder becomes compressed, the baby may only have seconds before an injury occurs. Injuries can also occur because of the high level of pressure on the umbilical cord. If your child has been injured, we are here to provide the legal assistance your need.
Holding Doctors Accountable
In many instances, these injuries could have been prevented. Doctors and medical staff are held accountable for monitoring a fetus and ensuring that if the fetus is in distress, that the proper medical treatment is administered. Attorney Adam Zayed is very experienced in the area of medical malpractice law, specifically with birth injury cases. He has been successful in representing families in birth injury cases involving cerebral palsy, brachial plexus and shoulder dystocia. We will take an aggressive approach to representing you and your family through the legal process and work to secure the maximum amount of compensation on your behalf.
