Reached during trial for our client, a newborn. Approximately 45 minutes prior to delivery, a hospital resident determined that the delivery should be performed via cesarean section and called the attending physician (since the resident was not allowed to perform a cesarean section). The attending physician denied ever receiving the call. The infant was delivered vaginally and during the delivery, the baby’s shoulder became stuck. We claimed that excessive traction (pulling) was used to deliver the infant, resulting in an injury to her brachial plexus. She now suffers from Erb’s Palsy and has limited use of her arm.
