Compensation for failure to diagnose eye problems including cataracts

As one of our main views on the world, our eyes are perhaps one of the most crucial and important parts of the body and as such it’s very important that we take care of them in the best possible way. Whether it’s wearing protective eyewear or simply taking care of your eyes when you need to, they are one part of your body which requires the utmost attention and if you want to continue to have a good range of sight it’s essential that you do care for them when you need to.

If you have been to see the doctor as the result of problems that you have been having with your eyes, and they have failed to treat you in an appropriate manner, you could look to make a claim for compensation to cover any costs that you have incurred.

WHO MIGHT I LOOK TO CLAIM AGAINST IN THIS SITUATION?

If you have been the victim of a failure to diagnose your injury then you could consider making a claim directly against your GP to cover any costs that you have incurred as a result. It is the responsibility of any healthcare professional to ensure that they provide you with the appropriate medical treatment to meet your needs and if you feel that they have been negligent in this situation then you could consider a compensation claim against them to cover any costs that you have incurred.

WHAT ARE SOME INJURIES THAT I COULD SUSTAIN AS A RESULT?

There are a number of injuries and situations where you may look to make a compensation claim. Some of these include:

  • Claims where a doctor or GP has been negligent towards you
  • Claims where you have developed further symptoms after negligence
  • Claims where you have developed chronic eye problems
  • Claims for a mis-diagnosis
  • Claims for a missed diagnosis
