Description

Tom Carlock and Eric Frisch successfully defended an obstetrician at trial against allegations that one fraternal twin received an in utero brain injury related to weight discordance, pre-eclampsia, and low amniotic fluid levels. The Floyd County, Georgia jury returned a defense verdict in less than 5 hours, after hearing evidence that the twin pregnancy was managed appropriately and that the most likely cause of the injury was genetics.
