SAKG Team Achieves Defense Verdict for Local OB/GYN

The plaintiff, a minor, was delivered by cesarean section on February 18, 2019.  Plaintiff claimed that during the delivery, performed by the Defendant OB/GYN, the child suffered a severe laceration to the eyelid, canalicular system, and conjunctiva through the Defendant’s negligent use of a scalpel while making entry into the mother’s uterus.  Plaintiff alleged excessive force was used while making the incision, and the Defendant erred in entering the uterus with a scalpel, rather than in a blunt fashion.  Permanent and progressive scarring and disfigurement were alleged.
