Congratulations to John Lyddane, Steve Lavietes, Melissa Andrieux and Diane Kennedy for another successful trial. A unanimous verdict on all claims was rendered in favor of our clients last week in Supreme Court, Nassau County. The verdict came after six years of litigation, one trip to the Appellate Division, and eleven days of trial.
The underlying case involved four surgical procedures between 1999 and 2012, and a claim that the patient suffered a loss of useful vision in the right eye due to improper LASIK surgery performed in 2001. Although consent forms and preoperative test results had been lost in the intervening years, a jury of six women decided that there was no merit to the claims of malpractice or lack of informed consent.
Great Job Medical Malpractice Defense Group Team!
