Compensation for blindness because of failure to correctly treat diabetes
Diabetes can be one of the most difficult diseases that a person may ever have to deal with, especially if they become dependent on insulin injections which often need to be administered several times a day. Although there are many problems associated with the development of diabetes, one of the biggest problems with the disease is that if it isn’t appropriately treated then you could be left with serious injuries.
If your diabetes has not been treated appropriately then it could lead to the development of a number of different medical health issues and one of the biggest of these is blindness – which can leave you permanently without sight. If you are the victim of negligence in this case and you have been left blind, you may consider a compensation claim.
WHO COULD I CONSIDER A CLAIM AGAINST FOR A FAILURE TO CORRECTLY TREAT DIABETES?
In general if you have suffered negligence in this situation then you could be eligible to claim against anyone who you feel has been directly negligent towards you. This could be your doctor if you feel that they have failed to treat you in the way that they should have, or perhaps your GP if you feel that they have failed to refer you to a specialist when the situation required it.
IF I SUFFER FROM NEGLIGENCE, WHAT HEALTH PROBLEMS COULD I SUSTAIN?
There are a number of different health problems that you could sustain through negligence in this situation and these include:
- Development of temporary blindness
- Development of partial blindness
- Development of total blindness
- Development of potential eye problems including cataracts
- Eye injuries which left untreated could spread to surrounding facial tissue.
