Most people are used to visiting their optician regularly for a check-up, and you can expect to receive the same expert treatment and care as you would from a doctor. That high standard of care applies whether you have received your treatment privately, or through the NHS.

Most people are used to visiting their optician regularly for a check-up, and you can expect to receive the same expert treatment and care as you would from a doctor. That high standard of care applies whether you have received your treatment privately, or through the NHS.

Usually most people just expect to come away from their optician with a new prescription for glasses or contact lenses, but during your eye-test, opticians should also be looking out for signs of more serious conditions. Conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, retinal detachment and brain or optic nerve tumours.

If they fail to diagnose these conditions the consequences can be very serious – often resulting in permanent damage or loss of eyesight. Claims arise where opticians or optometrists fail to identify key symptoms and refer patients to specialist professionals for treatment.

We are experienced in dealing with all types of ophthalmic and optician negligence. We can help you to prove that the care you received was negligent, so that you have the best possible chance of recovering the compensation that you deserve.

If you believe that your optician or ophthalmologist has been negligent, please get in touch to discuss your case with one of our experienced lawyers.

Accident and Emergency

Our Accident and Emergency departments provide an invaluable and often lifesaving service. With an estimated 21 million admissions to A&E departments every year, occasionally things do go wrong. A&E staff are often under pressure to make prompt diagnosis in circumstances which can be very challenging. When there are failures of care, the impact can be devastating for patients and their families.

Medical errors in accident and emergency medicine can arise in many ways. We have experience of handling a wide range of cases relating to A&E negligence, including those involving patients treated by paramedics, as well as A&E hospital doctors and nurses.

We will fully investigate the circumstances of your case and aim to make the process as easy as possible, guiding you through every stage. We know that often you want to understand why the A&E system failed you, to ensure the same thing doesn’t happen to someone else.

If you have suffered an injury or illness because of poor management, misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose you may be able to recover compensation.

Get in touch with our friendly, expert team for a free initial chat to discuss your case.
