Summary

Largely through the efforts of some physicians and plaintiffs' attorneys, progress has been made in representing children with head compression birth injuries and in actually getting the obstetrical community to take steps to help minimize the risk of this preventable event. Predictably and unfortunately the response by a segment of the leadership of the obstetrical community has been to once again create questionable literature to make proving causation more difficult. This has resulted in numerous Daubert motions throughout the country.

This lecture will attempt to provide an update on the status of the law as it relates to this issue as well as the current state of the literature. It is imperative that anyone handling this type of case be fully familiar with the current state of the law and research so that we do not allow bad appellate law to be created.
