Negligence Leads to Removal of Eye

Seven Figure Medical Malpractice Settlement

rlp-eye-exam-settlement.jpg

Our client underwent a pars plana vitrectomy -- a removal of the vitreous gel from the eye -- to correct a hemorrhage. Two days later, our client awoke with pain and decreased vision in the eye that had been operated on. Our client called the ophthalmologist's office and left three voicemail messages. Although our client was undergoing a true emergency, the doctor scheduled her for an ocular examination the following day.

When our client presented for her appointment the next day, she was diagnosed with endophthalmitis, an inflammation of the internal coats of the eye, and needed her eye removed. Our lawyers argued the ophthalmologist should have recognized our client was facing a true ocular emergency and ensured that she was seen the day her symptoms began. Our client's eye may have been salvageable had she been immediately seen. Rosen Louik & Perry settled this case for seven figures.
