Eye Injury Claims


    We can assist you in filing a claim for eye injury compensation if you have lost vision as a result of an accident that was not your fault.

    Blindness, or loss of sight, is a life-altering and traumatic injury that has a significant impact on you and your family. We want to make certain that you receive the financial assistance you require to move on with your life.

    Whether you’ve lost your sight completely or partially, you’ll need assistance from a variety of professionals during your recuperation, which compensation can help you pay for.

    We can assist with the various costs associated with eye claims, ranging from lost wages to reimbursement for laser eye surgery, and we have the necessary skills to assist you in bringing a successful eye damage claim.

    What kinds of eye injuries am I able to file a claim for?

    Any major harm caused by the negligence of another person has the potential to result in a compensation claim. Because eyes are such delicate and important organs, practically any damage, whether from an object penetrating the eye, scrapes on the surface, or even damage caused by a strong blow to the head, is significant.

    The following are the most prevalent eye injuries for which we seek compensation:

    • Losing an eye
    • Blindness (partially or completely)
    • Retinal damage
    • Cornea damage

    Who is to blame if you get an eye injury?

    Unfortunately, accidents do happen, and eye injuries can happen when no one is at fault. However, they frequently occur in public places or at the workplace in the absence of adequate safety procedures.

    It is the responsibility of every employer to ensure the safety of the employees in their workplace. Injuries to the eyes can be caused by a number of things.

    The following are some of the most common causes of eye injuries in the workplace;

    • Insufficient Training
    • A lack safety equipment, personal protective equipment and eye protection
    • Faulty Equipment or tools
    • Machinery that could cause serious injury or death
    • Storage of hazardous substances incorrectly
    • A trip or fall in the workplace.

    Medical Negligence

    Eye injury lawsuits may result from medical malpractice. An eye injury that would not have occurred if treated by a competent professional qualifies as medical negligence.

    Doctors and nurses can be held responsible if they do the following:

    • Misdiagnosis of a patient, either incorrectly or too late
    • Make a blunder when treating eye disorders
    • Cosmetic eye surgery can damage the eye’s natural function.
    • Prescribe or administer medication incorrectly, resulting in eye damage
    • opt for an unsuitable candidate for laser eye surgery
    • Medical malpractice may occur as a result of inexperience on the part of a new doctor or as a result of outdated knowledge on the part of an experienced doctor. It’s even possible that it’s the result of an admin error.

    What is the maximum amount of compensation for an eye injury?

    The amount of compensation for an eye injury is determined by the severity of the injury and the likelihood of future improvement. Loss of earnings and the expense of ongoing treatment, rehabilitation, and assistance must all be factored into the financial compensation assessment.

    Significant compensation to help you adapt to sight loss and live life to the fullest can run into millions of pounds, especially if you or a loved one has lost their sight due to someone else’s negligence.

    When calculating compensation for total blindness, several factors are taken into account including age, occupation, lifestyle and aesthetic considerations.
