Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello: Please know the advice I can give you is general information for education purposed in accordance with the terms and conditions of this web site. From the information you have provided it appears that you and your wife may have a claim for medical malpractice against the clinic and staff that inappropriately treated your wife and caused her to have permanent eye damage. In these types of cases a medical malpractice attorney is the type of attorney you need. This attorney will review the records that you have and will usually hire an expert to review them as well. The time to file these types of law suits in many states is not long (around 1 to 2 years) so it is best if you contact a medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible. Many of these attorneys take these cases on a contingent fee basis vs. you paying for hourly legal fees. You should discuss this with the attorneys you interview. If you do not know of an attorney in your area you can contact your local bar association and ask for lawyer referral and specify a medical malpractice attorney. You can of course also go online to do this and you will see many advertisements as well as sites like AVCO and Martindale Hubble. I hope this has answered your question.
