Atlanta lawyer wins million dollar verdict in Fayette County medical malpractice case

A Henry County woman was awarded $1.05 million in a medical malpractice suit against a Fayetteville surgeon for a botched surgery.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution has the story.

Cynthia Bennett, who is a Henry County nurse, claimed that she almost died when her surgeon injured her bowel during surgery. Bennett and her attorney also argued that the surgeon failed to diagnose and properly treat the injury.

The jury verdict of $1.05 million was against the Fayetteville surgeon JuDonn Adams and New Millennium Obstetrics and Gynecology LLC. Bennett had originally filed the suit back in December 2003. One of Bennett’s attorneys was Brandon Hornsby, an Atlanta trial lawyer.
