Experienced Optometrist Lawsuit Attorneys – File Your Claim Here
A lot of people don’t know this, but medical errors are the third leading cause of mortality or death in the United States. The vast majority of these deaths are preventable, making these negligent acts utterly reprehensible and unforgivable. Your eyesight is your crowning jewel as without it you wouldn’t be able to navigate the world without help, or enjoy a richer life experience given the role sight plays in the human experience. To this end, optometrists are required to make sure that your eyesight is not only 20/20, but that any eye issues are treated in a timely manner. Optometrist malpractice occurs when these specialist physicians do not follow an accepted and pervasive standard of care when treating their patients, exposing them to negligence that can harm their eyesight and potentially change their lives forever. If an optometrist made a mistake that was due to carelessness or recklessness, you as the patient have every right to file a legal claim in order to recover compensation, and we’re here to help with that.

It is important to note that in order to have a valid optometrist malpractice lawsuit, there needs to have been a patient-doctor relationship at the time of your injury, as this will establish something called duty of care, and that if the physicians breached this duty of care on account of negligence causing you harm or damages that are legally compensable, then you may have a case. Do you believe that your optometrist’s negligent actions led to your eye complications? Give us a call NOW at (773) 985-5139 to find out if you have a valid claim.
