OMW Secures Defense Verdict for an OBGYN in a Medical Malpractice Jury Trial

November 04, 2016

Jeremy Willett and Mike O’Neill successfully defended an OBGYN in a jury trial in Lake County Superior Court, Crown Point, Indiana. The Plaintiff alleged that negligent prenatal care and negligent obstetrical maneuvers resulted in the paralysis of the baby’s left arm and brachial plexus injury. At the trial, the defense brought an OBGYN member of the Medical Review Panel, who explained that the Defendant managed the pregnancy and birth appropriately. Furthermore, the OBGYN testified that that the events were unpredictable and unpreventable given the limitations of medical technology. The jury heard five days of evidence between October 31 – November 4, 2016 and then returned a verdict in favor of the Defendant OBGYN.
