When An Accident Causes A Detached Retina
Vision loss is a major injury. When it is the result of auto accidents, medical malpractice or other acts of negligence, victims have the right to pursue full, just and fair compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other costs associated with the loss.
At Jacobs & Dow, LLC, our Connecticut eye injury lawyers have been protecting the rights of accident victims for more than 60 years. We help victims of complete vision loss in one or both eyes, as well as victims who have suffered injuries that have led to a partial loss of vision, a narrowing range of vision or damage to depth perception.
Medical Malpractice And Vision Loss
While many vision-loss cases involve eye injuries suffered in motor vehicle accidents, a significant number are the result of doctor errors. Sometimes, the two may work together to cause vision loss. For example, an auto accident victim may go in for surgery and, due to medical negligence, suffers a stroke during surgery, which causes loss of vision. Loss of vision may also be the result of errors during cataract surgery or eye surgery of any type.
Vision loss may also be the result of misdiagnosis. If a doctor fails to diagnose glaucoma in a timely manner, the patient could suffer vision loss that might have been prevented had the doctor diagnosed the condition and started treatment immediately.
Our attorneys understand that vision loss can lead to serious financial concerns, which is why we handle all accident claims on a contingency basis. If we do not recover for you, there are no attorney fees.
