In this matter, BIKLAW represented a 37 years old woman who had a dilation and curettage following a miscarriage. During the procedure, the doctor pierced a hole through not only the patient’s uterus but her large intestine as well, a known but very rare complication of the procedure. As a result, the woman had to have a temporary colostomy, and now suffers from irritable bowel syndrome. With the MICRA cap on general damages in California, the patient was forced to accept far less compensation than she would have otherwise been entitled to in other states. The defendant doctor claimed, and still claims, he did nothing wrong during the procedure.
