Anderson v. Defendant Obstetrician


Defendant Obstetrician


Defense Verdict


On May 5, 2009, DBMS obtained a defense verdict in a jury trial in Lake County.

Plaintiff had alleged that a defendant physician was negligent in continuing a prescription for a hypertension medication which allegedly led to a premature delivery and in utero damage to the child, including chronic kidney damage which would eventually require dialysis and transplant.

The plaintiff asked the jury to return a verdict between $4.6 and $6.3 million dollars. After deliberating for more than five hours, the Lake County jury returned a defense verdict in favor of the physician.
