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.
"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury
case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We
downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard
copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been
happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left
shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.
The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for
our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."
Needle Gallagher & Ellenberg, P.A.
"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's
injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a
good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you
Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the
conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to
prevent bed sores..."

"The Doe Report is a visual feast of medical information for personal injury
Aaron R. Larson, Esq. President ExpertLaw.com
"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what
happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where
people are used to getting information visually, through television and
other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.
I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.
Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."
