Daniel's Case 

Claimant: Daniel Timothy

Solicitor: Daniel Clifford

Defendent: Optical Express

Case type: No win no fee medical negligence claim

Injury:  Eye loss following laser eye surgery

Outcome: Optical Express found negligent resulting in the loss of an eye following laser eye surgery at the Optical Express clinic in Brentford High Steet in 2016

Settlement: £500,000

Statement by Daniel Clifford:

I am delighted for my client that this decision brings a successful conclusion to this awful situation, no amount of compensation could ever replace the loss of an eye, however it can help fund continuing treatment, care and provide financial security.

Thousands of people undergo laser eye surgery in the UK each year on the understanding that it is safe, and yet this is not always the case.  I can only hope that the media attention given to this case can provide awareness to the public about the dangers of laser eye surgery and help others from suffering a similar fate.
