To determine if you have a claim for medical malpractice, including from LASIK surgery, it is not enough that you have a bad result.
First, a qualified medical expert needs to review your medical records, including color copies of color images (such as color cornea topographies or Orbscans), and confirm that your doctor departed from the standard of care.
Second, the expert needs to be able to say that the doctor’s negligence caused your injury, as distinct from a pre-existing disease process.
Finally, you need to demonstrate damages, which can include loss of income, medical expenses, and pain and suffering, including loss of life’s enjoyment.
Often LASIK victims wonder if their claim is worth pursuing. The best way to find out is to consult with an experienced attorney, who has a proven track record of successfully litigating LASIK and related eye injury cases.
