How do I make an eye related medical negligence claim
A compensation claim would usually be bought against an NHS Trust when eye surgery has gone wrong, or an optician if there was for example a delay in diagnosing glaucoma or against an individual practitioner or company in laser eye surgery cases.
There is usually a three-year time limit from the date of the alleged negligence within which you can make a claim. In some circumstances this can be extended but you should be aware that these can be complex, lengthy and demanding cases. The first thing to do is to contact an expert law firm like Access Legal, which specialises in this sort of work.
It is important that your chosen law firm has relationships with the appropriate medical and other experts who can assess your immediate health needs and suggest what treatments you may urgently require. Their input will be absolutely crucial to getting advice as to what treatment you may need and the success of your compensation claim.
