In an action asserting medical malpractice, negligent hiring, and lack of informed consent, plaintiff claimed that 7 months after undergoing LASIK surgery, he was diagnosed with a hereditary degenerative condition known as retinitis pigmentosa. Plaintiff alleged that his complaints associated with this condition were caused or accelerated by the LASIK surgery and the alleged negligence of CG&P’s client - the largest LASIK provider in North America. At the conclusion of discovery, the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York, held that CG&P established that its client was entitled to summary judgment and dismissed all claims against the LASIK facility. The Court found that CG&P demonstrated that the LASIK facility was not negligent in its care and treatment of the plaintiff and that all other claims were inapplicable. The case was handled by CG&P Associate Christopher Rogers.
