$1.9 Million Awarded in Medical Malpractice Suit

Published July 29, 2010 by Scott Gottlieb, Injury Law Attorney

A Virginia woman was awarded a $3 million medical malpractice verdict against a local gynecologist after her hysterectomy went terribly wrong. Due to a state law capping such awards, the judge reduced the award to $1.9 million.

According to the lawsuit complaint, the patient was badly injured when a hysterectomy performed by Winchester, Virginia physician Katherine Averill in 2007, resulted in her vagina being stitched to her rectum. The patient required several additional surgeries to correct the problem, including a colostomy procedure.

The doctor’s practice closed in November, 2009.
