What is Blindness or Loss of Sight due to Negligence?

Blindness or loss of sight due to negligence is when an individual's vision has been impaired or lost as a result of the failure of another person to take reasonable care. This can include accidents and medical malpractice.

As a firm, we see many clients who have been deeply affected by medical malpractice from an ophthalmologist, with some even losing sight or going blind as a result of this kind of incompetence. That's why, here at Forbes Solicitors, we offer legal support for those who need the expertise of those who have experience with these kinds of cases.

What is a Loss of Sight Compensation Claim?

When a medical practitioner is supposed to perform a procedure on the eye, and they make a mistake it can sometimes cause severe problems for the patient in question. Either because it exacerbates the initial diagnosis or causes additional problems, it can sometimes lead to a significant loss of sight or blindness.

In this case, a person who has experienced this would be able to make a claim against the ophthalmologist who performed the surgery and with enough evidence that it has significantly affected their day-to-day life, could seek compensation.

John Bennett at Forbes has been patient, supportive and understanding. From the outset I felt that my case was in safe hands. Throughout the process I have found that John is happy to explain terminology and procedures so that I have felt reassured and comfortable.

Causes of Blindness Negligence

Causes of Blindness Negligence

There are a number of reasons why a patient may become blind as a result of negligence on the medical practitioner's behalf. Two of the main reasons are:

The surgery is performed poorly and leads to additional problems for the patient, or it means that the initial condition is not treated and allowed to advance further.

The patient is misdiagnosed, which means the wrong treatment is provided and the actual condition is allowed to advance which then leads to blindness.
