Seven-figure recovery — A young man in his early 20s from Allegheny County was recovering from surgery to remove a brain tumor. During follow-up visits with his doctors, he mentioned that he was starting to experience changes in his vision, but those complaints were ignored over a period of several weeks until tragically, he was permanently blind. It turned out that his blindness was caused by pressure on the optic nerve that should have been discovered and treated when he first started to complain about vision changes. We filed a medical malpractice claim, and attorney Gismondi obtained a seven-figure recovery to compensate him for suffering permanent blindness as a young, single man.
Recovery well into the six figures — A retired maintenance man from Shaler, Allegheny County, lost the vision in one eye as a result of a mistake made during a medical procedure. A recovery well into the six figures was obtained on behalf of this gentleman.
Large six-figure recovery — A young boy from Beaver County lost the vision in one eye as a result of a delay in diagnosing amblyopia. A large six-figure recovery was obtained on behalf of this boy, and the money was safeguarded to be available to him during his adult years.
Large six-figure award — An elderly woman from Pittsburgh suffered complete loss of vision in her left eye as a result of an injury she sustained during a lens implant surgery. We filed a medical malpractice action against the ophthalmologist who performed the surgery and were able to prove with the assistance of independent consultants that improper surgical technique led to the injury. We obtained a large six-figure award for this woman.
