San Jose Law Office Settles Important Case


Morgan Hill, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/16/2013 -- The Law Offices of David Burnett announces a settlement in an important case against a medical provider for failure to diagnose proliferative diabetic retinopathy. The condition left the firm's client with limited vision, and David Burnett settled the case for $350,000. The Law Offices of David Burnett have agreed to keep confidential the name of the medical provider.

Proliferative diabetic retinopathy becomes one of the many threats to eyesight which confronts a diabetic. Retinopathy itself is defined as any disease of the eye which does have as a cause an inflammatory component. Proliferative diabetic retinopathy occurs when a lack of oxygen to the retina causes blood vessels to grow which have a thin and fragile skin. Often, this skin tears allowing blood to leak into the eyeball's clear gel and interfere with vision.

In the circumstances related to the case, David Burnett contended that the medical provider failed to monitor his client as closely as conditions would warrant. The patient was a diabetic and look-out for proliferative diabetic retinopathy would be considered standard care. The provider claimed to have provided sufficient monitoring, and regardless, that they could not have prevented the injury.
