You may be eligible to make an Oculentis claim with our No Win, No Fee representation as part of the action for compensation that we’ve launched.
If you’re one of the hundreds of people who have been affected by the Oculentis recall, you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Patients who are suffering with opacification (bling spots / cloudiness in the vision) may be required to have further surgery. The corrective procedure is to replace the previous lens.
Any need for further surgery as a result of a medical device can allow a patient to claim personal injury compensation. As an area of law, we have helped many people in the past with these very problems, and we’ve already launched legal action following the Oculentis recall.
Eligibility for an Oculentis claim
If you have been fitted with a particular type of intraocular lens manufactured by Oculentis, and your vision has suffered, you may be able to make an Oculentis claim for compensation.
Even if you don’t have to pay for the costs of the corrective procedure, you can still claim personal injury compensation. The need to have further surgery as a result of the lens will likely mean you suffering with pain and loss of amenity. You may also need time of work and may lose earnings, and you may have to pay for other medical costs too.
As part of an Oculentis claim for compensation, you could claim damages for having to undergo further surgery, and you could claim back losses and expenses as well.
