Medical Malpractice Trial Involving Robotic Surgery Ends in Settlement Against Doctor

Posted by Jared Green on November 17, 2013

Attorney Eva Bleich had just blogged about this medical malpractice case a few days ago and now  the jury has found for the plaintiff in the robotic surgery trial involving Dr. Daniel H. Laury. 

The verdict against Dr. Laury included a jury award to Michelle Elsey of $10,500 in medical expenses and $100,000 as compensation for physical pain and mental anguish.

The Mail Tribune wrote, "A prominent gynecologist committed malpractice when he removed a patient's healthy ovary and left a piece of plastic in her body after a 2007 robotic surgery.

Dr. Daniel H. Laury, formerly of Medford, is liable for more than $100,000 in a lawsuit filed by Michelle Elsey and husband Toby Elsey, according to a verdict announced Thursday in U.S. District Court. Jurors convicted Laury of medical malpractice after hearing two days of testimony from the plaintiffs and seven physicians, including Laury."
