Loss of eyesight compensation claims

eye claim

A claim for loss of eyesight compensation will usually be classed as a serious injury compensation claim, which is what we focus on when it comes to personal injury cases.

Pay-outs and valuations for this type of claim can be substantial. We need to take into account the significant loss of amenity caused to you, as well as financial losses from being unable to work in the same capacity as you previously have (where applicable). It’s our job to prove that you’re entitled to make a claim for compensation and then to maximise the amount you receive using expert evidence.

Read on for more advice about when you can be eligible to make a claim and how we can help you with No Win, No Fee representation.

Can you claim loss of eyesight compensation?

You may be eligible to make a claim for loss of eyesight compensation if your vision has been adversely affected through no fault of your own and where the blame is with someone else.

With how important your eyesight is, making a claim in these kinds of circumstances is incredibly important.

Scenarios where you could have a claim can include:

  • Medical negligence: such as a surgical error, or a delayed / missed diagnosis that could have prevented damage;
  • Work accidents: not being provided eye protection at work when it’s necessary, or where defective or dangerous machinery (such as unguarded machinery) causes an injury;
  • Product claims: defective surgical lenses, or dangerous / defective products used in or around the eye area.

Of course, there could be other scenarios, which can include road accidents and slips, trips and falls. Ultimately, if your eyesight has been affected in an accident, you may be able to claim

How we value an eye injury claim

We assess and value loss of eyesight compensation claims using expert medical evidence that we arrange for you.

The expert will be able to confirm that the injury occurred as a result of the act we believe is negligent, and they can also provide a prognosis for recovery and the future for the injury. We can then value the claim based on the extent and severity of any ongoing injury and loss to you.

This report is the key evidence that should hopefully help to prove your entitlement to compensation.
