John Martin and a former Cranfill Sumner Attorney won a defense verdict for an Obstetrician in a birth trauma case.   The case involved the delivery of a baby complicated by a severe shoulder dystocia. The OB performed the Zavanelli Maneuver, a rare obstetrical procedure which required him to push the baby back inside the plaintiff and quickly perform a cesarean section. Few experts have ever performed this procedure. The baby was born with a brachial plexus injury but no brain injury.

The outcome of a particular case cannot be predicated upon a lawyer's or law firm's past results.
