The natural senses — sight, hearing, smell, taste — are very important to our living safe and enjoyable lives. When a patient loses one of his or her natural senses, it usually causes a significant change in their lifestyle. It may affect their ability to continue to work, or just very simple things such as going about their regular daily activities. Loss of sight, hearing or sense of smell can result from either accidents or medical mistakes. Regardless of how it happens, it is a great loss.
Over the past 30 years, the attorneys at Gismondi & Associates have successfully handled a variety of cases involving vision or hearing loss, including:
- A recovery in excess of $1 million on behalf of a young man who was made blind because doctors did not discover pressure on his optic nerve that had built up after he had surgery for a brain tumor.
- A large six-figure recovery on behalf of a child from Beaver County who lost vision in one eye as a result of a delay in diagnosing a condition known as amblyopia.
