Our client gave birth to a 9 pound 7-ounce baby. Shortly after delivery, the baby was noted to have a fractured clavicle as well as a limp right arm. We alleged that the doctor used excessive force to deliver the baby. The defense made no offer to settle this case as they contended that the natural forces of labor caused the injury and that the doctor used the appropriate amount of force. We were very pleased that the jury concluded that the doctor caused the brachial plexus injury to our clients’ daughter during birth. The verdict will help pay for her future medical care, surgeries, and therapy which she will require throughout her life.
