Franklin County, Kansas. Defense Verdict
This matter involved the stillbirth of a full term infant as a result of a uterine rupture during an attempted vaginal birth after a previous cesarean section (“VBAC”). Plaintiffs alleged that our client, a family practice physician, failed to adhere to the applicable standard of care in that he did not adequately inform the patient of the risks associated with VBAC delivery, failed to perform a C-Section on the plaintiff in a timely manner and that Oxytocin was inappropriately used on this patient. A verdict was returned in favor of our client and he was found to have met the applicable standard of care.
