Our sight is one of our most precious senses. We understand how devastating an eye injury or damage to your vision can be, which is why our solicitors will fight to claim you compensation that not only reflects your pain and suffering, but also the ongoing impact on your life.
How To Make An Eye Injury Claim
Speak to our team on
0800 056 4110. Our personal injury specialists will take you through a free initial consultation, during which they’ll ask you how it happened, who you believe to be responsible and how your life has been affected.
If we think you have a claim, we’ll approach the person or organisation you believe is at fault. If they accept responsibility, we’ll negotiate a compensation settlement for you that takes into account your pain, suffering and the impact on your life.
If we think you have a claim but the other party doesn’t admit responsibility, we’ll still fight for compensation for you – all the way to court if necessary.
Our specialists can help you with:
Loss of eye
The effects of an eye injury may be temporary or life-changing. Our teams strive to secure you compensation not only for the immediate physical damage, but for the long-term impact on your life.
How Long Do You Have To Make An Eye Injury Claim?
Generally speaking, you have three years from the date of the injury, or the date you realised your sight was being affected, to make a claim. There are some exceptions to these time limits however, for example if you suffered a criminal assault, in which case the time limit is two years.
No matter how your injury happened, you should contact us as soon as possible. Contacting us early makes it easier for us to gather evidence and gives your claim the best chance of success.
How Much Compensation Can I Claim For An Eye Injury?
Compensation amounts will vary from case to case as every claim is different. Our aim is to get you the compensation you deserve, which we’ll strive to do by assessing:
The severity of the damage
Loss of earnings
The effects on you and your loved ones
Whether or not you’ll need ongoing treatment.
In more serious cases, for example injuries resulting in blindness, the settlement will be substantially higher. We’ll assess both physical and psychological damage.
Where applicable, we can also help you with interim compensation payments. These are paid before your final settlement to cover ongoing costs such as travel expenses to hospital, and are deducted from the final compensation.
No Win No Fee Eye Injury Claims
The majority of our eye claims are ‘no win, no fee’. This means that yours and your opponent’s legal fees are covered if you’re unsuccessful*. If you’re successful, your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any costs not paid by your opponent will be deducted from your final settlement.
