Plaintiffs prepare to seize Ohio obstetrician’s assets to collect $9.7 million judgment against her. While the attorneys have been debating for 11 months over pre-judgment interest for this case, the plaintiff received a writ of execution against the doctor. Her personal vehicle and other personal property are all being targeted. A court hearing has been set to determine how much of doctors wages will be garnished.
With New York’s obstetricians dwindling, malpractice insurance costs skyrocketing and our extreme litigious climate, this story hits close to home. Lawsuit reform is needed to help keep doctors in our state, lower medical costs and increase New Yorker’s access to healthcare.
