Sweeney & Sheehan partner Louis J. Vogel, Jr. recently obtained summary judgment on behalf of a licensed optometrist and his practice for claims of professional and medical negligence in the New Jersey Superior Court, Law Division, Essex County. Plaintiff alleged that the defendants deviated from the standard of care in diagnosing and treating a retinal detachment, resulting in permanent vision loss, multiple surgical interventions and substantial loss of income. After briefing and argument, the Court agreed with the defendants that the plaintiff had failed to meet their burden of proof.
