Compensation for failure to adequately treat a cataract

Our eyes are perhaps one of the most important parts of the human body. Small, fragile and incredibly complicated, they do play an important role on the way that we see things – and the way that we perceive them – and as such they go a long way to allowing us to perform a whole range of day to day tasks.

Cataracts are small parts of tissue which develop in the eyes over time, usually caused by ageing, and left untreated they have the potential to grow and become increasingly serious – potentially leading to blindness or severe eyesight problems developing, and as a result it’s crucial that any potential issues are identified. If you have recently been to see a medical practitioner who has failed to identify a cataract and you have been left suffering as a result, you could look to make a claim for compensation.

Where could you look to make a compensation claim?

A number of different situations here could lead to you making a compensation claim. Some key examples of this include:

·         Failure to accurately diagnose a cataract

·         Failure to provide adequate treatment for early stages of a cataract

·         Failure to identify a cataract

·         Failure to adequately test for a cataract

·         Failure to provide a long-term treatment plan for a cataract.

Who might be responsible for your injuries?

In general if you are the victim of a cataract injury then chances are that it will be due to the failure of your healthcare professional to adequately identify a cataract or to provide you with the right treatment plan and in this situation you might look to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred as a result of their negligence.
