New York Blindness or Hearing Loss Attorney

At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm, we provide legal representation to people who have sustained eye injuries or hearing loss as a result of an accident. We can even come to you at your home, hospital or on the job. If you don’t have a doctor to treat you for your injury, we may well be able to find doctors that can treat you without you paying them until the end of the case, and we can keep insurance adjusters from calling you. These injuries could be caused by medical malpractice, a motor vehicle accident, or a slip, trip and/or fall, an accident at a construction site, among others, and may involve negligence or wrongdoing on the part of the person or people responsible.

eye injuriesOur firm brings these medical professionals, construction site owners, property owners and managers and vehicle owners to trial in appropriate cases. We will not settle your case unless it is in your best interest to do so, and you approve. Click here to see more verdicts and settlements. In one case, we represented a man who was on a ladder using a nail gun and a nail hit his eye because he was not given protective eye goggles. He suffered a loss of vision, but he was still able to see well enough to drive a car. We were able to sue someone other than his employer (boss) and we recovered $795,000 for him. The other side (the defense attorneys) fought bitterly against us, yet we proved liability without a trial. The other side (the defense attorneys) appealed that decision and we won in the appellate courts also. The case was settled during trial for $795,000.

LASIK Surgery Lawsuits

One of the most common eyesight lawsuits is that filed against doctors for misdiagnosis of candidacy for LASIK surgery. While LASIK is an advanced technology that can seemingly perform miracles in terms of eyesight, it is not safe for everyone.

Doctors should inform their patients of inherent risks and they must give each patient a comprehensive eye exam to learn of any factors or underlying conditions that may put the patient at greater risk.

When my daughter was burned in an accident, my husband and I looked for a good lawyer who specialized in burn cases. My husband found Mr. Kenneth A. Wilhelm, and we called him and met with him. He told us he would do whatever he could for our daughter, and he did! We were very pleased with the work Mr. Wilhelm did for our daughter, and we are glad we chose such an excellent lawyer. We would choose his services again if we had to, and I would recommend his services to my family, friends, or anyone who has need of a lawyer. My daughter is doing well because of him.read more

My son was born prematurely, and I trusted the doctors and hospital to get him through the first few weeks and out of danger. The doctors made some mistakes in their procedures and my son is now injured for life because of their mistakes. I didn't know what to do. I hired Ken Wilhelm's law office because I heard from someone that Ken Wilhelm is the best. He and his attorneys held the hospital responsible for their errors. We received a very large settlement. It doesn't fix my son's suffering but I feel that my attorneys helped me get what my family deserved for our hardship.read more
