A jury awarded a woman nearly $3 million from a medical malpractice suit she had filed against a physician group for a bowel leak during surgery that was to remove a cyst on her ovary. The leak was not discovered until 10 days later although the doctors should have seen it earlier through images taken of her uterus.

The woman’s medical malpractice attorney said the judge will reduce his client’s jury award due to malpractice caps in their state.
