Attorneys Representing Clients Who Have Suffered From Optical Malpractice
Eye doctors and other medical professionals who focus on optical issues are trusted with one of our most important senses: sight. Unfortunately, medical errors and mistakes by opthamologists and other eye care physicians do happen. Patients injured by eye doctor malpractice suffer from blindness, pain and other debilitating conditions.
The lawyers at Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder, PC, are experienced medical malpractice personal injury attorneys who help injured clients understand their rights. We have won millions of dollars in financial compensation for people who have been harmed by medical malpractice in Connecticut. Contact us today to discuss one of the eye issues listed below or any other conditions that may have been the result of medical malpractice.
Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP)
Babies who are born prematurely may suffer from an eye disease known as retinopathy of prematurity, which is a disruption in the normal development of the blood vessels in the eye. Without proper monitoring for this potentially devastating eye disease condition and without treatment for the disease, a child can develop scar tissue in the eye, the retina can become damaged and the child can become permanently blind. Doctors are required by the standard of care to properly evaluate children for this eye condition. Doctors who fail to monitor and treat children for ROP can be held liable in a malpractice lawsuit.
Laser Eye Surgery
The advancements in technology have allowed more and more people to undergo laser eye surgery to treat myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) or astigmatism. While patients expect to get the clear vision they were promised, many procedures do not go as planned as the result of error or malpractice by the eye doctor. Individuals can be left with permanent eye injury, including blindness. We handle personal injury and medical malpractice cases stemming from all types of laser eye procedures, including LASIK and other refractive eye surgeries like LASEK and PRK.
Eye Injury and Optical Malpractice
Whether it occurred in a car accident, during a children's soccer game or other situation, our firm can handle all types of eye injuries and optical malpractice that happen as the result of someone else's negligence. We can get to the root of the eye injury and determine who is responsible for the losses you and your family have suffered.
