CG&P Secures Dismissal of Claims Brought Against North America’s Largest LASIK Provider

In an action asserting medical malpractice, vicarious liability, and lack of informed consent, plaintiff claimed that he suffered permanent visual complications to both eyes as a result of the alleged negligence of CG&P’s client - the leading LASIK provider in North America. At the conclusion of discovery, the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of Queens, 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 indisputably demonstrated that the LASIK facility was not negligent in its care and treatment of the plaintiff. The Court further found that the facility could not be held vicariously liable for the co-defendant physician’s alleged malpractice and that the lack of informed consent claim was inapplicable. The case was handled by CG&P Partner Michele Levin and CG&P Associate Christopher Rogers.
