Mechanism of Shoulder Dystocia - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical illustration depicts the mechanism of shoulder dystocia, or brachial plexus injury, during a vaginal delivery. It features a mid-sagittal view of the mother's pelvis and abdomen and shows the birth of a baby with it's shoulder trapped by the pubic symphysis. The fetal head has been delivered but the one shoulder is stuck and cannot be delivered. The brachial plexus is highlighted in red to indicate the area of injury.
"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled
[my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after
the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they
really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing
with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude
in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without
difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain
that this contributed to our successful result."

"I would like to thank all of you at Medical Legal Art for all the

"Thanks, and your illustrations were effective in a $3
million dollar verdict last Friday."
Joseph M. Prodor Trial Lawyer White Rock, British Columbia
"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."
