Los Angeles Shoulder Dystocia And Erb’s Palsy Attorney
When problems during childbirth result in a serious birth injury, many people try to identify mistakes during the delivery that led to the injuries. In reality, effective prenatal care should identify potential issues and risk factors that may lead to problems such as shoulder dystocia and Erb’s palsy.
At the Law Offices of Michael Oran, A.P.C., we represent families in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California that have suffered because of a:
- Failure to diagnose gestational diabetes
- Failure to treat gestational diabetes
- Failure to offer and/or perform a C-section
Failure To Diagnose Or Treat Gestational Diabetes
Women who suffer from gestational diabetes during pregnancy typically show no visible signs of the problem. Gestational diabetes — a pregnancy complication involving elevated blood sugar levels is detected by a properly performed oral glucose tolerance test.
When gestational diabetes is not diagnosed or treated, women are more likely to deliver larger babies. The risk of complications when delivering larger babies vaginally increases substantially, and it puts the mother and baby at risk for complications.
When attorney Michael Oran represents families in shoulder dystocia and Erb’s palsy cases, he starts by reviewing the prenatal care that was given. If a mother had too much glucose in her system, the OB-GYN may be held responsible for failing to diagnose and treat gestational diabetes and for failing to order or perform a cesarean section.
