partial loss of sight in one eye due to retinal detachment after car accident. Pre-ex cataract surgery done in the same eye in the past. What will be value of the settlement.
There are verdict and settlement guides that may be helpful in finding value under facts similar to yours, but the value in your case comes down to: (1) what a jury (or judge if you waive a jury) decides is the value; or (2) what you agree to take in settlement and, of course, what the other side agrees to give up in settlement. These are the true measures of value in litigated cases, and they are always fact and law dependent. You may wish to talk t a few lawyers privately about your facts. Good luck!

It is not possible at this time to provide a value of your settlement because there are so many circumstances that come into play in your potential settlement value. For instance, your settlement value will depend on how bad your vision loss is and the affect that your vision loss has on your everyday life. The value of your settlement will also depend on apportionment, which is dependent upon your preexisting cataract surgery and the percentage of pre-existing injuries. An attorney will fight for you to maximize your compensation and to minimize the apportionment issue. It is important that you contact an attorney in your area in order to receive the legal care needed for this case. Also, keep in mind the two year statute of limitations period, which makes it important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. I wish you all the luck.
As statement by the other counsel your REALLY need to consult a California personal injury attorney to discuss your claim - what have you got to lose since many personal injury attorney offer a free initial consultation. This is not the type of question that can or should be answered via this public forum. Best wishe
