Background Check

2 Malpractice Claims
  • Settlement : 12/9/2015
    Nature of Complaint: OUT OF STATE CLAIM: FL. Patient was diagnosed with bilateral cataracts, was properly diagnosed and underwent cataract surgery. Multiple expects reviewed the matter and concluded that the patient's lenses were properly placed and the complications that occurred were known complications in the absence of medical negligence and that any condition of the patient subsequent to the cataract procedure was a result of unrelated conditions. The principal injury giving rise to the claim was related to need for subsequent surgery. It was discovered that the patient had a history of eye rubbing which likely contributed to the movement of lenses post cataract procedure. It was also concluded that the patient's vision is currently better than it was prior to cataract procedure. The patient's final visual outcomes were 20/20 OU.
