A chain of South Florida medical clinics is liable for more than $13 million after a patient’s cataract surgery resulted in blindness. A surgeon who was an independent contractor for Leon Medical Centers INC. injected dozens of patients’ eyes with a toxic solution, not knowing how highly concentrated it was, according to a consolidated complaint filed on behalf of 14 of the patients.
A jury found Dr Jonathan Leon-Rosen acted as an apparent agent of the medical center when he gave surgery to one of the patients , 80 year old Miguel Diaz (represented by the Law Firm of Friedman & Friedman). The finding put the company on the hook for the damages even though the jury also found Leon Medical Center s itself was not negligent.
