Michigan Shoulder Dystocia Attorneys

Birth is a physically stressful event for both mother and child, which is why you rely on experienced doctors and nurses to help make sure the process is as safe as possible. But not all medical providers, not all hospitals and not all doctors are as reliable as we might hope, and sometimes the negligence or malpractice of a doctor actually causes injury.

At the law office of Bredell & Bredell, our lawyers have been working with families across Michigan since 1984 handling complex birth injury cases. We are proud to offer a reputation of proven results and respected client service spanning more than two decades.

Legal Representation for Shoulder Dystocia and Other Birth Injuries

Shoulder dystocia and other physical injuries can occur when the baby's shoulder is compacted against the mother's pelvis during birth. It is important that doctors and nurses take quick and correct action to avoid serious nerve damage or a brachial plexus injury that could result in Erb's palsy.

Our firm has the knowledge and resources to pursue cases involving:

  • Use of improper birth procedures
  • Failure to monitor
  • Delayed treatment
  • Misuse of forceps or vacuum extractors
  • Failure to recognize fetal distress

If you suspect that your child sustained birth injuries because of any kind of medical negligence, you need to consult with an attorney that is experienced at evaluating and handling these kinds of cases.
