Birth injuries such as shoulder dystocia can stem from negligence

Although giving birth can be an exciting time, it can also be nerve-wracking in Illinois. Unfortunately, sometimes the doctor who an expectant mother trusts to deliver a child fails to exercise a reasonable degree of care during the process. This can lead to serious birth injuries, with one of them being shoulder dystocia.

$5 million awarded in fatal birth injuries case

The birth of a new baby is typically an exciting time in many Illinois homes. In addition to setting up the nursery and attending showers, the parents-to-be must decide specific details regarding the child's birth. Decisions regarding whether to have a natural birth or an assisted birth are normally part of the process. For some, there is also the decision of whether to have the baby in a hospital or with the assistance of a midwife. Recently, a family in another state was awarded $5 million after their son died as a result of birth injuries while being delivered by a midwife in a birthing center.
