Jennifer Smitrovich and Caitlyn Spencer won a defense verdict on behalf of their client, a plastic surgeon, in a medical malpractice case tried in King County.  The plaintiff alleged that the surgeon negligently left a piece of sterile gauze in her breast following a breast augmentation surgery and that the gauze caused capsular contracture and resulting injuries.  The defense admitted a standard of care violation but disputed causation and damages.  Following a two week trial, the jury rendered a defense verdict and found that the gauze did not cause any injuries and was an incidental finding.
