Our client (now aged 67) was unhappy with treatment she received at hospital. There was an administrative delay in providing a three-month follow-up appointment. As a result of the delay, her pre-existing viteromacular traction in her right eye progressed to a full thickness macular hole requiring a vitrectomy. This caused damage to her eye, resulting in deterioration of her eyesight.
It was our case that, as a result of this delay, her final visual outcome was worse than it would have been. The hospital accepted that the care fell below an acceptable standard but disputed the clinical negligence claim and level of harm caused. Our no win no fee solicitors acted for this client in 2015.
S. J. Edney solicitors obtained compensation of £20,000 for this client during 2015
