Medical Malpractice Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Booth, George


AC38224 - Wilkins v. Connecticut Child Birth & Women’s Center (Medical malpractice; "In this medical negligence action, the plaintiff Kristin Wilkins appeals from judgments in two cases, which were consolidated for trial, in favor of the defendant Women's Health Associates, P.C. On appeal, she argues that the court abused its discretion in submitting a threshold jury interrogatory and in framing its answer to a question from the jury regarding that interrogatory, and, therefore, the jury verdict, returned in the defendant's favor, should be set aside and a new trial should be ordered. We disagree and, accordingly, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.")
