Failure to Diagnose Conditions and Diseases

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
  • Cataracts

 

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.
