Clay Edwards and Joshua Davis successfully defended an Evansville gynecologist in a medical malpractice case. Plaintiff alleged that a hysterectomy and oophorectomy were performed without her informed consent. Plaintiff also alleged that the gynecologist’s recommendation of a hysteretomy was a deviation from the standard of care. Plaintiff’s experts, including a unanimous medical review panel, argued that results from a vaginal, instead of cervical, colposcopy would have precluded a recommendation of hysterectomy. This marks the 7th unanimous defense verdict for O’Bryan, Brown & Toner in Evansville since 2007.
