Highest medical malpractice verdict in Santa Clara County in 11 years


Our client was in her mid-eighties living in her own home and acting as the primary caregiver to her husband who suffered form Parkinson’s Disease. She care for her garden, drove a care, shopped for groceries and cleaned her own home. In a word, she was independent. Over the course of several weeks her doctor failed to address persistent complaints of headaches and blurry vision. A short time later, she became totally and permanently blind. Her doctor had failed to diagnose her condition, temporal arthritis, which is an inflammation of the arteries that supply blood to the eyes. Evelyn went to a layer who took the case and then after months of no progress, dropped it. She consulted other lawyers who were not interested in her case. They said she was too old to get a large verdict and winning medical malpractice cases was too hard anyway. Finally, she came to us, and we agreed to represent her. She received the highest medical malpractice verdict in Santa Clara County in the previous 11 years! Click here to return to home page.
