Medical Malpractice - Retrobulbar Anesthetic Block - Hemorrhagic Choroidal Detachment

Dennis Vandenberg and his team successfully defended an anesthesiologist in a medical malpractice case in Palm Beach County, Florida wherein the Plaintiffs chose to voluntarily dismiss their case one the eve of trial and after 2 years of litigation.  The case involved an alleged perforation to the Plaintiff’s left eye during a retrobulbar anesthetic block which resulted in a hemorrhagic choroidal detachment and eventual blindness.  Based on careful review of pre-operative ultrasounds, the defense successfully demonstrated that the hemorrhagic choroidal detachment actually began 2 days prior to the administration of the retrobulbar anesthetic block.
