You may be eligible to make a claim with us on a No Win, No Fee basis if you fit our eligibility criteria. In short, if you’re affected by the Oculentis recall and have required additional surgery, we can help you.
We strongly advise that you launch your Oculentis compensation claim sooner rather than later to avoid missing any deadlines to claim. In this type of action, there can be more than one deadline, and missing a deadline could result in you receiving nothing at all!
The Oculentis recall
The Oculentis recall was initially publicised in 2015, with additional Field Safety Notices issued at the end of 2017. The recall stems from surgically-fitted intraocular lenses where some patients have suffered opacification (cloudiness / blind spots in the vision).
The issue identified was that a cleaning agent that contained phosphate was previously used in the manufacturing process, which could be the cause of the calcification in the lenses. People suffering with problems may need corrective surgery.
Although Oculentis may be prepared to fund the costs of revision surgery, victims of the recall can be entitled to claim additional damages as well.
Claiming compensation as a victim of the Oculentis recall
If you’re affected by the Oculentis recall, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim as part of the legal action we’re taking.
You may be able to claim for:
- Any pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused (known as General Damages);
- Any losses and expenses, such as lost earnings from time off work during the recovery period for the revision surgery, or travel costs and other medical expenses. These are known as Special Damages.
Even if the cost of the procedure is paid for by Oculentis, you could still join the legal action we’ve launched. You can be entitled to claim for the problems associated with the need for additional surgery that should never have been required in the first place.
We’re confident that we can succeed with compensation claims that match our criteria. In fact, we’re so confident that we’re prepared to offer No Win, No Fee representation for victims of the Oculentis recall who claim with us.
So long as you meet our criteria for a case, we can help you claim.
