Birth Injury Paralysis Leads To Lawsuit

Comments Off

DC InjuryBoard blogger Kevin Goldberg brings my attention to the story of a young girl who suffered a birth injury when her arm was paralysed during delivery. The girl, now 8, had a condition known as shoulder dystocia which prevents an easy delivery.

Her parents filed a malpractice lawsuit against the doctor but didn’t want any of the $1.1 million award. They wanted all money to be paid to their daughter.
