Obstetrics / Birth injury to the fetus

Shoulder dystocia & OBPI

Damage to the shoulder during delivery

Success story

Rupert sustained an obstetric brachial plexus injury (OPBI) in his left arm at delivery. It was alleged that this was due to negligence in performance of the delivery. PMS Expert Report considered that the antenatal care was of a poor standard, with a failure to diagnose Rupert as a very large baby despite having a scan at 35 weeks. The delivery was indeed performed negligently, with a failure to recognise shoulder dystocia, leading to a failure to perform the right movements to safely deliver him. The case was settled, and Rupert was compensated.
