Eye surgery errors often preventable, can be very serious

| Jun 21, 2016 | Surgical Errors

Eye surgeries, such as cataracts surgery, are surgeries that some people use to try to improve their eyesight. In some cases, the surgeries should be straight forward without too many risks. That isn’t to say that there won’t be any risks at all since every surgical procedure is associated with some risks.

We know that you trust your eye surgeon because if you didn’t, you wouldn’t have allowed them to operate on your eyes. Even though you trust the surgeon, there is still a chance that you could suffer from an injury during the surgery. Interestingly, many of the errors that are made could be prevented if the surgeons would simply take their time and follow proper procedures.

Learning that you suffered an injury during an eye surgery is a difficult event that no patient should have to go through. Learning that the injury was because of an error that could have been prevented is even more difficult. In either case, you might decide that you want to take action because of the injury. One of the options that you have is to seek compensation.

We can help you to investigate the problem that led to your injury. From there, we can help you to make a plan of action to seek compensation for the damages you suffered because of the injury. If you opt to seek compensation, any financial award received can help you to pay for medical care that was necessitated by the surgical error. It can also help to cover any pay that you missed because of the injury.
