Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Robert L. Green and Darryl D. Gresham, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Leon Dickson, Sr.

Attorneys 2:

Karen S. Koplon and Hugh Francis, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellee, Sidney H. Kriger, M.D.

Judge(s): MCBRAYER

Patient brought a health care liability action against his eye surgeon, alleging that the surgeon’s negligence in performing a LASIK procedure resulted in several eye injuries. The trial court granted a directed verdict for the surgeon, finding the patient failed to present evidence establishing the standard of care and causation. Because we find the evidence was sufficient to create an issue for the jury, we reverse and remand to the trial court.
