 WHY YOU NEED AN OPHTHALMOLOGY EXPERT WITNESS

General ophthalmologists perform surgical procedures that are generally highly successful. They monitor medical conditions such as glaucoma and diabetic eye disease.  Sub-specialists such as retinal, corneal and glaucoma surgeons handle more complex situations, and perform higher-risk types of surgery.

All of these situations are difficult for anyone but an ophthalmologist to decipher and understand.  An experienced general ophthalmologist who is in active medical and surgical practice has a unique understanding of what can possibly go awry in medical and surgical situations.  The opinion of an expert is invaluable to attorneys who might be trying to determine whether actual malpractice is present.  This can represent a savings in time and expense for the attorney and client.

When a case is initiated by an attorney, the value of the Ophthalmology Expert Witness in deposition and trial cannot be overstated.  This can be the key to success in obtaining a settlement or in winning a case in trial.
