New Jersey Eye Injuries Lawyers

New Jersey Lawyers Serving Eye Surgery Patients

There have been numerous advances in eye surgery in recent decades. For example, Lasik surgery has corrected the vision of millions of Americans. Lasik and other procedures are touted as convenient and relatively free of complication. For most people, Lasik surgery, cataract surgery and other procedures go without incident. A small minority of cases go tragically awry due to errors in the care provided by the ophthalmologist. As a result, patients can suffer total or partial vision loss, as well as other serious conditions. If you or someone you love has been harmed by the negligence of an ophthalmologist or other professional, a lawyer can be instrumental in helping you recover appropriate damages for everything you have lost.

Britcher Leone, LLC, in Glen Rock and Parsippany, represents clients across New Jersey in a wide range of complex medical malpractice lawsuits, including claims involving severe eye injuries.

When Medical Malpractice Causes Vision Loss

Most of us rely on our sense of sight more than our other senses. Therefore, avoidable injuries to the eyes are particularly tragic. Ophthalmologists and other eye care professionals are trained to provide care according to accepted standards. When mistakes happen, the results can be devastating.

Our law firm is able to take on a wide range of eye injury lawsuits, including claims involving:

  • Lasik eye surgery: Lasik eye surgery was introduced in the mid-1990s. Since then, millions of Americans have undergone Lasik surgery to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness or other problems. Lasik surgery errors can cause vision impairments, intolerable glare, permanently dry eyes and other severe complications.
  • Cataract surgery: Nearly half of Americans over the age of 80 have a cataract or will have one. Therefore, cataract surgery is a relatively common event. Although these surgeries are performed frequently, there are still complications, some of which constitute malpractice. Failure to recognize complications during and after cataract surgery can lead to retinal detachment and other severe conditions.
  • Glaucoma: Untreated glaucoma can lead to total vision loss. When patients present with symptoms of glaucoma, physicians must make appropriate decisions as to the patient's care.

Our attorneys will make a full investigation of your case while developing your claim. In order to prove liability, we will work closely with medical experts who will help us prove that your physician deviated from the generally accepted standards of care. One of our partners is also a doctor. This gives us insight into the technical issues involved in these cases.
