12/01/1998
Client:

Defendant Obstetrician-Gynecologist

Outcome:

Defense Verdict

Synopsis:

Plaintiff alleged that her obstetrician/gynecologist failed to diagnose and properly attend to her incompetent cervix, and as a result, she went into premature labor and lost a fetus at 22 weeks gestation.

The plaintiff contended that a cone biopsy of the cervix performed by the physician several years before the subject pregnancy caused structural damage of the cervix.

Plaintiff sought $1 million. The jury returned a defense verdict.
