On Monday, November 24, 2014, the New York Law Journal, in conjunction with Verdict Search.com, named Todd J. Krouner in its “Verdict and Settlements Hall of Fame: Medical Malpractice.”
The Hall of Fame verdict was $5.8 million in a LASIK malpractice case, in which the surgeon was negligent in screening the patient for eye surgery. As a result, the patient developed post-LASIK ectasia, which is a vision threatening disease that impacts quality of vision, resulting in symptoms such as double vision, glare and halos. The New York jury awarded, and the appellate court recently affirmed, $3.1 million just for the patient’s pain and suffering. That pain and suffering award is the highest of its kind for an eye injury.
Together with Mr. Krouner’s previous $7.25 million verdict in Schiffer v. Speaker, Mr. Krouner has the two largest verdicts involving LAISK surgery negligence.
