Shoulder Dystocia with Brachial Plexus Injury - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical exhibit depicts a left-side shoulder dystocia injury of an African-American infant during delivery. The first illustration shows a mid-sagittal cut-away view of the mother with baby's head crowning through the birth canal. The remaining two graphics illustrate the injury to the infant's brachial plexus nerves in the neck as the baby's shoulder catches on the mother's pubic symphysis during vaginal delivery. The brachial plexus is shown being pulled and stretched as the head is delivered.
"The illustrations have consistently been well documented, accurate and
timely. Most important though is that the illustrations demonstrate to
juries and claims people the persuasive power of visual communication. Our
firm has achieved multiple eight figure settlements and verdicts over the
past ten years... Medical Legal Art has been there with us on every case."

"I have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning
of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the
defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It
is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."

"For modern audiences, it is absolutely essential to use medical
demonstrative evidence to convey the severity and extent of physical
injuries to a jury. Your company's high quality illustrations of our
client's discectomy surgery, combined with strong expert testimony, allowed
the jury to fully appreciate the significance of our client's injuries.
We are very pleased with a verdict exceeding $297,000.00, far in excess of
the $20,000.00 initially offered by the defendant. The medical demonstrative
evidence provided by Medical Legal Art was an asset we could not have
afforded to have been without."
