Ophthalmologists typically have a high success rate of treating eye conditions, with (surgical or medical) treatment such as cataract, glaucoma, diabetic eye disease and retinal and corneal disorders. However, when things go wrong, or eyesight is affected, attorneys typically reach out to a consultant ophthalmologist expert witness for an expert opinion of whether malpractice exists.

Expert Ophthalmology Witness

Many attorneys turn to our office to consult an expert ophthalmology witness during malpractice cases. Having the opinion of an expert is important when a judge or jury is trying to determine whether any malpractice occurred during an eye surgery or other treatment. An expert witness not only saves time, but also money for the attorney and client represented.

When a case is brought forward by an attorney, our expert witness’ testimony during the deposition and the trial cannot be overlooked. This expert opinion can actually be the key to getting a settlement or winning the trial case itself.
