John Phillips and Katie Watts received a unanimous defense verdict in Paducah for a Bowling Green ophthalmologist accused of medical malpractice by his former cataract patient. The Plaintiff claimed that the Defendant-Doctor committed an array of breaches of the standard of care involving the evaluation, performance and follow-up of a complicated cataract extraction. Mr. Phillips argued that the Defendant-Doctor adequately evaluated the patient for surgery, properly reacted to unforeseen conditions intra-operatively that complicated the surgery, and was appropriately assessing and treating the patient’s complications in follow-up until the patient elected to discontinue his treatment. The Plaintiff had asked the jury for over $3,000,000 in compensatory damages.
