Every second counts when it comes to providing the victims of an auto accident with effective medical care. Unfortunately, in the case of 42-year-old Randolph Hinz, a doctor’s error resulted in the patient’s permanent vision loss. After a 2006 car crash, Hinz was rushed to a local hospital, where surgeons immediately operated on a broken leg he sustained in the crash. However, due to loss of blood after the accident, Hinz’ optic nerves were irreparably damaged, causing him to go blind. In a lawsuit Hinz later filed, he claimed that the doctors should have stabilized his blood loss before attempting the surgery. A jury agreed – to the tune of more than $1.75 million.
