Articles Tagged with shoulder dystocia injuries’ ‘lawsuit against expert witnesses

Kenneth Levine of Kenneth Levine and Associates of Brookline, Massachusetts has filed a fascinating lawsuit against the authors of an article on brachial plexus injuries and the publication that printed the article.

Levine alleges that the article, "Permanent Brachial Plexus Injury Following Vaginal Delivery Without Physician Traction or Shoulder Dystocia ", was published in 2008 in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and is being used by defense experts to defeat brachial plexus injury claims.  The article claims to report the  "first unambiguous  case of a baby born vaginally  without  physician traction, and even without the occurrence of shoulder dystocia, that resulted in a permanent brachial  plexus  injury."
He further alleges that the  case report of the delivery contains false information and the individual defendants knew the data was false when it was published.  The Complaint states that the corporate defendants were later made aware of the falsities and have refused to retract the article.
