Blindness, Loss of Sight Negligence Compensation Claims

SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS

together

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.

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.

Blindness Compensation Claims

If you believe that your surgeon did not perform a surgery correctly due to negligence, then our team at Forbes Solicitors may be able to help get you compensation for the effect that it has had on your day-to-day life and the stress you have had to endure.

Going blind or losing sight as a result of medical malpractice or negligence is a serious claim and one that you can receive large amount of compensation if proven to be legitimate by a court. We understand how devastating an injury to the eye can be, and how suddenly going blind can have a severe impact on a person's life.

Our solicitors are skilled in helping those who have been a victim of medical malpractice and operate on a no win, no fee basis which ensures there is no financial risk to you in the unlikely event that your compensation claim is unsuccessful.
