Donald Brown and Michael Dailey successfully defended a prominent Lexington, KY gynecologist against allegations of medical malpractice. Plaintiff maintained that the Defendant failed to obtain an adequate informed consent prior to performing surgery which Plaintiff maintained was unnecessary. The defense team countered the allegations of the Plaintiff arguing that the Plaintiff was counseled extensively prior to agreeing to undergo the operative intervention in question and defended the physician’s judgment in carrying out the gynecologic procedure. Plaintiff claimed an entitlement to a significant sum of monetary damages. After hearing the case, the jury awarded the Plaintiff nothing and returned a verdict in favor of the Defendant.
