Compensation for nerve damage from obstetric malpractice Wisconsin childbirth lawsuit nets $1.4 million dollar settlement amount
Are injuries during childbirth considered malpractice?
In some cases, a doctor's medical malpractice can cause either mother, baby or both to be injured before or during the birth of the baby. If this has happened to you, contact a personal injury attorney to win the maximum compensation for your injuries. Warshafksy won a $1.4 million dollar settlement for a childbirth malpractice case that left a baby partially paralyzed.
Personal injury lawyers hold doctor responsible for baby girl’s nerve damage
The birth of a baby is a joyous occasion. Families are filled with excitement as the due date approaches. Many parents hope for a healthy, happy child while feeling anxious something will go wrong. With modern medicine and technology, the risks associated with childbirth are much lower than they once were. However, medical complications and doctors’ mistakes can still cause injury and other problems.
If you or your baby were harmed during childbirth because of a doctor’s mistake, you deserve compensation. An injury sustained at birth can impact a child’s whole future, such as their overall health, emotional well-being, social life, and ability to pursue the career and hobbies they’re interested in. Money can’t change what happened to your child, but it can help you provide a better future.
Medical negligence lawsuit against Wisconsin physician for injuring child during delivery
A pregnant Wisconsin woman went to the hospital in labor, ready to finally give birth and meet her daughter. After hours of labor, the baby was almost there, but her right shoulder became stuck behind the mother’s pubic bone. This problem (known as shoulder dystocia) can be dangerous, as it can cut off the baby’s oxygen supply.
Doctors have a variety of techniques to reposition the baby and free the shoulder, such as adjusting the mother’s position, pressing on her stomach, or, in extreme situations, performing a C-section. However, instead of trying the appropriate maneuvers to free the baby’s arm and shoulder, the obstetrician pulled forcefully on the baby’s head. The nerves running from the baby’s neck were stretched and torn, resulting in permanent damage to her right shoulder, arm, and hand.
Infant girl suffers lifelong nerve injury
The mother was furious and felt betrayed by the doctor she trusted to deliver her baby safely. She had heard of Warshafsky’s reputation for high settlements and successful trials. She called for a free consultation, and we started to build her case. Our medical malpractice attorneyshave experience with injuries caused by doctors during childbirth. It is a tragedy when a newborn experiences any kind of suffering, particularly at the hands of the doctor or midwife who is supposed to provide care and safety. If nerve damage or other injuries are caused during labor, it could affect the rest of the baby’s life.
When a case like this appears, we see an opportunity for a Society Changing Judgement—along with achieving the greatest possible compensation for our client, we also change societal standards to make the world safer for everyone. When doctors face medical malpractice accusations, hospitals begin to take a closer look at all their doctors to ensure similar problems don’t occur again.

We prepare your case for trial from the moment you call to show insurance companies we’re ready to take them on. Our goal is to secure the greatest settlement or jury award possible, even if it means full litigation.
