$2,625,000 – Erb’s Palsy Resulted from Improper Baby Delivery

Mother diagnosed with gestational diabetes and a 9 lb., 6 oz. fetus. A vaginal delivery was attempted and the baby’s shoulder became stuck behind the mother’s cervix. Rather than perform a c-section, the obstetrician utilized an improper delivery technique and a brachial plexus injury known as an Erb’s Palsy resulted. The settlement reflects both a structure and cash payment to the infant.

This case was settled in The Bronx, New York.
