Birth Injuries

The lawyers of Paulson & Nace have worked with dozens of families who have been victims of obstetrical or neonatal negligence. If you or your child has suffered serious injuries related to the failure to timely perform a cesarean section, vaginal operative deliveries (vacuum or forceps), improper induction of labor or Cytotec induction our experienced legal team may be able to help. We have successfully resolved many different types of birth injury case, including shoulder dystocia, Cytotec induction, ectopic pregnancy, vaginal birth after cesarean section (VBAC), cerebal palsy, and failure to perform a timely cesarean section. Most recently, Paulson & Nace was able to obtain a confidential settlement for our clients in a Cytotec induction case.

Paulson & Nace also represents mothers who were seriously injured in the birthing process. Paulson & Nace obtained one of the two largest individual jury verdicts in the District of Columbia for a mother who was the victim of medical negligence during the birthing process.
