Wright, Newton & King Obtain Defense Verdict for OB/GYN in Med Mal Case

Mike Wright, George Newton, and Allen King obtained a defense verdict in favor of an obstetrician-gynecologist in a case alleging negligent management of a suspected ectopic pregnancy.  The plaintiff presented evidence from a board certified OB/GYN that the defendant physician breached the standard of care by performing a D&C, diagnostic laparoscopy, and in administering methotrexate to the plaintiff.  The plaintiff presented very emotional testimony from the stand concerning her mental anguish following the care and treatment and the loss of the pregnancy.  The defense called an independent expert in the field of obstetrics who testified that all of the defendant's treatment was reasonable.  The jury returned a verdict for the defendant following five days of trial.
