Defense Verdict for OB/GYN After Week-long Jury Trial.
We defended an OB/GYN in a suit involving complications from a C-Section. The plaintiff had a major post-partum hemorrhage two weeks later and underwent a hysterectomy, thereby losing the opportunity and ability to have additional children. The case was defended on both standard of care and causation, the defense position being that the care was appropriate and that taking the plaintiff back to the OR carried significantly more risks in this situation. The jury deliberated for 45 minutes and found the physician not negligent.
