Medical Negligence In Laser Eye Surgery

Mulderrigs acted in a medical negligence claim relating to laser eye surgery.

Mrs Jenas underwent laser eye surgery in South Wales.

The first operation was successful but she was then advised to undergo a lens exchange operation.

This second procedure was carried out negligently and left her with blurred vision for several months.

Mulderrigs took on the medical negligence case against the the surgeon.

We obtained independent expert evidence from an ophthalmic surgeon confirming that there had been medical negligence.

The Pre-Action Protocol For The Resolution Of Clinical Disputes encourages the parties to settle cases without court proceedings if possible.

Once we had the expert evidence we delivered a detailed Letter of Claim to the surgeon.

The insurers for the surgeon quickly admitted that there had been some negligence.

Following negotiations they then agreed to pay our client £10,000 in compensation.

Fortunately, our client had the damage to her eye corrected and made a full recovery.
