Looking for an injury lawyer in Lyneal
Most people who have laser eye surgery to correct refractive errors with their sight do so through private clinics and therefore, have to pay for the pleasure of being operated on. The NHS will only provide laser eye surgery free at the point of delivery for conditions that if left untreated, could result in loss of vision. If you’ve been to a laser eye surgery clinic, it’s likely your treatment will not have been cheap and whilst you’ll typically have been asked to sign some form of disclaimer or consent form before you went under the laser, you may well still be able to take action against your surgeon if he messed up your operation.
Eye surgery injury lawyer action
If a laser eye surgery procedure has left you with worse sight than you had before or has caused damage to your eye that would make it difficult for you to undergo further procedures, you may be able to use an injury lawyer to win compensation from the clinic that operated on you. Depending on the nature and severity of the damage that was done to your eye, you could win many thousands of pounds.
Before your operation, the clinic that performed your surgery should have made sure you were over 21 years of age, were in good health and had healthy eyes. As a rule of thumb, if you had particularly bad sight in one eye, a reputable laser surgery clinic would not operate on your other one if it was healthy. If your surgeon failed to follow these guidelines, your case for compensation may be stronger.
Finding a no win-no fee solicitor
You should launch a case for compensation if a laser eye surgery clinic has made a mess of your operation not only for any pay-out you might win, but also for other patients who may have the misfortune to be operated on by the same shoddy surgeon that caused your problems. Using an injury lawyer to take action could result in a dodgy doctor being removed from practice, thus ensuring that others do not have their sight damaged in the same way that yours was.
When it comes to making a compensation claim your first thought may be to seek the help of a local injury lawyer in Lyneal. However, in many circumstances you are better off using the services of a national provider like Accident Advice Helpline. Their service offers many benefits that a local injury lawyer in Lyneal cannot compete with.
