Eye Injury: $1.45 Million Verdict

Our client went to his doctor to treat a severe nosebleed. The doctor ordered a procedure that involved injecting medication into the patient’s maxillary artery. Immediately following the treatment, the man woke up unable to see out of his right eye. Attempts to restore his vision were unsuccessful. Our client’s blindness has impacted his ability to work, altered his lifestyle and changed his personality.

The man sued his doctor for failing to properly read his angiogram, which showed a connection between his maxillary artery and his central retinal artery. When the fluid was injected, it traveled to the central retinal artery causing our client’s blindness. A jury found the doctor completely liable and awarded the plaintiff $1.45 million.
