Shoulder Dystocia-Erb’s Palsy Jury Verdict
Posted on behalf of Goldberg Finnegan, LLC on Feb 17, 2011 in Medical Malpractice
Yesterday our good friends David Kopstein and Barry Leibowitz obtained a verdict in a shoulder dystocia case in Manassas Virginia (Prince William County, VA). The Virginia jury verdict in this shoulder dystocia case was in the amount of $2.55 million. The case involved a 5-year-old Hispanic boy with a 5-level injury. We congratulate the family for having the courage to pursue the lawsuit and for the lawyers in obtaining a fantastic verdict. The challenges that a family with a severely disabled child with cerebral palsy or Erb's Palsy from shoulder dystocia face are long-term and, quite frankly, unimaginable to those who have not ever had to face these challenges. The best part about a shoulder dystocia/Erb's Palsy verdict in a case like this is that the child will have the money needed to obtain medical care to maximize his chance to live a more productive life. The lawyers at Goldberg Finnegan are available to review birth injury cases including shoulder dystocia cases and cerebral palsy cases. We have two attorneys who are also registered nurses.
