We've got your failure to diagnose claim covered
Being one of the most fragile and important organs of our body, it is crucial that the eye is looked after correctly, and any problems or conditions are diagnosed as soon as possible to prevent any other issues arising further down the line.
If a medical professional fails to diagnose an eye condition early enough, this can have severe ramifications for the health of your eye in the future potentially even permanent blindness. This responsibility may fall to your General Practitioner, optician, or an eye specialist if you have been referred to one. If you feel that a delay or failure to diagnose has left you with further problems, you may be eligible to make a claim.
Common eye conditions may include:
- Sun damage
- Macular degeneration
- Disease of the retina
- Detachment of the retina

Avoidable damage to your eyesight
If your eyesight has been affected by negligent treatment, perhaps because of a failure to diagnose a condition or disease, then it’s your right to seek compensation for a failure to diagnose your eye condition.
Damaged eyesight can have a lasting impact on your physical capabilities and can also result in some debilitating symptoms, such as chronic headaches and migraines. Conditions such as detachment of the retina and cataracts that have occurred as a result of negligent treatment can also impact your life negatively in the long-term.
Furthermore, a failure to diagnose an eye condition that could have been prevented is an incredibly frustrating and upsetting experience.
Rest assured, when you consult a medical negligence expert such as Patient Claim Line in your corner, you can pursue a claim with confidence.

Head of Medical Negligence
Christian is Head of Medical Negligence at Patient Claim Line and has specialised in clinical negligence claims since qualifying in 1998; having dealt with a wide variety of claims throughout his career. He is also featured in the Legal 500 as a recommended claimant solicitor in the North West.
Christian qualified as a solicitor in 1998, specialising in clinical negligence. From 2010 onward he has had a particular interest in gynaecological and urogynaecological claims, having represented several hundred claimants in the George Rowland Litigation against the Liverpool Women’s and Aintree Hospitals. This investigated the treatment given to women in the Merseyside area over several decades, and in particular focused on the introduction and development of mesh into the UK in both the treatment of stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. The development of this area involved pursuing claims under a unique ADR protocol with the NHS and also looking to develop the current thinking on the valuation of compensation for complex urinary symptoms. He has successfully recovered hundreds of thousands of pounds in compensation on behalf of my clients.
Christian was also involved in setting up and chairing a Claimant Support Group for those involved in the Rowland litigation, which provided a discussion forum for the many women who were left isolated and damaged by negligent gynaecological treatment. He now co-ordinates the firm’s mesh claims and has delivered training and commented extensively on the medico-legal implications of urogynaecological / mesh complications. He is a member of APIL, Liverpool Law Society and Legal 500 recommended.Email me

"Now we have peace of mind"
My husband, Nick, went back and forth to the doctors for a long time and tried everything the doctor recommended. But his illness got worse, to the point that he was in agony.
In the end we got so desperate that we asked for a referral. The doctor was reluctant, so we had to consult a private hospital. That’s when we found out there was a tumour. It took years from the onset of his illness to finally start cancer treatment.
He used to be a man with a lot to live for, but in the end he was in so much pain that he withdrew from the family. He became angry that nobody had helped him sooner, and the legal team were able to give him the validation that he was desperately seeking. The NHS confirmed if they had done more, Nick would still be alive today.
