In April 2009, the team represented a Plaintiff who sustained injuries during the course of treatment to his right eye at Cork University Hospital on the 17th February, 2003. Not only was the initial treatment of anterior stromal puncture inappropriate, it was also negligently performed in that it punctured the central part of the Plaintiff's cornea. As a result, a significant portion of the Plaintiff's central vision has been irreparably affected by this negligent treatment.
The trial was due to commence on the 28th April, 2009 but was compromised by way of negotiated settlement on the 27th April, 2009. The Plaintiff was awarded €250,000 damages plus costs.
