Top New York Settlements of 2012

Once again, the Law Office of Todd J. Krouner has achieved one of the top settlements of the year for LASIK malpractice.  According to Verdict Search, in 2012, our $975,000 recovery for a Staten Island housewife with ectasia was among the largest medical malpractice settlements, and the only reported recovery for a LASIK surgery mishap.

According to a report by Ophthalmic Mutual Insurance Company, the average recovery for successful LASIK surgery negligence claims is less than $100,000.[1] Consequently, choosing a knowledgeable attorney, with experience handling LASIK, and related eye surgery, malpractice cases, is critical to not only having a successful outcome, but also to obtaining full compensation for vision threatening injuries.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a doctor, you should promptly contact an attorney with experience in medical malpractice.  The Law Office of Todd J. Krouner has a proven track record of helping patients injured by LASIK (and other forms of medical malpractice) all over the country.  To determine if you have a strong case, contact us for a free consultation at (914) 238-5800.
