Patient Claim Line have formed a team of specialists to investigate medical negligence claims made against surgeon Mr Prashant Jindal. It has been alleged that Mr Jindal allowed colleagues who were unqualified to undertake corrective laser vision surgery on two of his patients, who later went on to develop further complications.
The two patients in question, were treated at Accuvision clinics. In one instance, one patient had received a partially successful laser surgery at Accuvision’s Solihull clinic. Following this treatment, he made complaints about be overcharged for the surgery he received as well as questioning the accuracy of his keratoconus diagnosis.
In the case of the second patient, they received an advanced surgery at the company’s Fulham clinic. After the treatment, the patient reported that they suffered constant pain, photophobia, blurred vision, and further complications following their photorefractive keratectomy procedure.
Mr Jindal has admitted signing consent forms as well as carrying out the treatment and completed surgery reports which indicated he was the surgeon for both patients. Yet, allegations have been made that unqualified colleagues conducted the procedures.
