On January 24, 2011, Virginia Lawyers Weekly headlined “Details scant in settlement of shoulder dystocia case,” and subtitled “987,500 Settlement”. Mr. Waterman and co-counsel resolved that medical malpractice action.

Their $987,500.00 settlement negotiated on September 7, 2010, was for “Brachial plexus injury caused by shoulder-dystocia delivery”. It was believed to be the largest settlement in Virginia for that type of medical malpractice case.
