Substantial award of damages for lady who lost vision in eye due to medical negligence


Posted in News on Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

Karen Kearney and the Medical Negligence team in Cantillons Solicitors acted on behalf of this client in a medical negligence claim against the HSE, prosecuted in the High Court in Dublin.

 

The claim related to our client’s doctors’ failure (in a HSE run hospital)  to appropriately treat and manage difficulties in her left eye (uveitic glaucoma)  between 2010 and 2014 and which ultimately led to significant loss of vision in her left eye.  The loss of vision had a hugely adverse effect on our client’s working, social and personal life.

 

The case was fully fought by the Solicitors for the HSE until a week prior to the case commencing in the High Court.    An earlier admission and, indeed, an apology, could have helped alleviate some of the stress suffered by our client, not only because of the injuries she sustained due to the Defendants’ negligence, but also due to bringing the case against the HSE and the ever-present worry that her case could fail and costs be awarded against her.

 

The substantial settlement achieved for our client has brought her  peace of mind  knowing that her future needs will be met out of the damages received.
