Eye Injury Victim Sues Eye Doctor

Posted:

A lawsuit has been filed against an eye doctor after a teenage boy was injured as the result of a firework. The teenager from Bakersfield was hit and injured in the eye after a Roman candle went off. The lawsuit has been filed against an eye doctor who is accused of purchasing the fireworks.

The incident occurred when the seventeen year-old and some of his friends were playing around in a vacant parking lot. While playing with the fireworks a Roman candle went off and injured the teenager, Steven Rogers, in the eye. A lawyer for the plaintiff claims that he could lose the eye and has still not regained sight in it.

The lawsuit alleges that Dr. James Schuler purchased the fireworks in Wyoming, a state where they can only be sold to adults. The report goes on to state that the doctor sold some of the fireworks to one of Rogers’ friends when he returned home, although they were illegal in California.

However, the doctor has denied purchasing or selling any fireworks, and that the lawyer for the plaintiff must have his facts wrong.
