One of our Partners negotiated a settlement of £340,000 on behalf of a baby with Erb’s palsy. Our client was a large baby weighing more than 4.5 kg. After his head was delivered the midwife realised that shoulder dystocia had occurred. An obstetrician was called and completed the delivery. However, the obstetrician failed to perform any manoeuvres to free the shoulder and merely pulled on his head to deliver him.
