$1.2 Million Settlement Obtained for Cataract Surgery Malpractice

By Steven M. Levin and John J. Perconti


A $1.2 million medical malpractice settlement was reached for a woman who lost the vision in one eye due to complications resulting from negligently performed cataract surgery. The damage to the patient?s eye occurred when the surgeon attempted to inject anesthesia at the state of the operation, through what is known as a peribulbar block. The medical error occurred when the needle was misdirected. This was caused by inadequate preinjection anesthesia which caused the patient to feel the injection and move.
