BSCR obtained a jury verdict in favor of our client, The Doctors Company, after a week-long trial. The case had been filed and dismissed on two prior occasions when BSCR attorneys were able to negate or nullify the expert testimony of plaintiffs. On the third attempt, the plaintiffs alleged that BSCR’s client was negligent for applying excessive lateral traction during the delivery of the plaintiff allegedly causing a brachial plexus injury and avulsion of the c-5 nerve root. Notwithstanding the evidence of debilitating permanent injury, the jury found the attending obstetrician not guilty of negligence and that he acted within the appropriate standard of care in his delivery of plaintiff.
