Eye Injury Compensation Claims
If you have suffered an eye injury and it was caused by somebody else’s negligence, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation. Our solicitors can provide you with the expert representation required to ensure your claim is successful.
We have worked with many people who have suffered an eye injury by helping them get the compensation they deserve. We believe it is important to claim sufficient compensation to cover the physical, emotional and long-term problems your injury will cause.
How JMW Can Help
Our personal injury solicitors are dedicated to helping you achieve the best possible outcome. We have worked on many major cases, securing millions of pounds in compensation for people who have been injured due to somebody else’s negligence.
The basis of your claim is formed by the severity of your injuries. Our solicitors will arrange a medical examination as part of the claims process as well as establish the exact cause of your eye injury. This will help us to understand the likely cost of any medical treatment you have needed or may require in the future, as well as take into account care, rehabilitation and equipment.
Types of Eye Injuries
The most common eye injuries we have dealt with include:
- Blunt force trauma
- Chemical burns
- Cuts and scratches
- Fractures and breaks
- Foreign objects entering the eye
- Exposure to bright lights
- Laser eye surgery negligence
Regardless of how you have been injured, if it was caused by someone else through no fault of your own, you will be able to make a claim for compensation. Our solicitors will be able to advise you on the likelihood that your claim will be successful.
How Much Compensation Can I Claim for an Eye Injury?
The consequences of eye injuries can be complicated and the issues they cause can vary greatly from person to person. For example, an adult may have to change their career if they are able to work again as a result of their injuries, whereas, for a child, the lifetime implications of living with an injury or damaged eye could become problematic as they grow older.
The amount of compensation you can claim for an eye injury depends on the severity of the damage. This can range from:
|Total blindness||In the region of £124,210|
|Loss of sight in one eye with severely reduced vision in the other||£76,510 to £143,270|
|Loss of sight in one eye with moderately reduced vision in the other||£50,870 to £84,510|
|Total loss of one eye||£43,710 to £52,360|
|Total loss of sight in one eye||£39,270 to £43,710|
|Serious impaired vision in one eye||£18,880 to £31,320|
|Minor permanent impaired vision in one eye||£7,270 to £16,720|
|Injury to both eyes||£3,150 to £6,960|
|Injury to one eye||£1,760 to £3,150|
Please Note: Figures shown are approximate, based on experience and previous settlement amounts attributed to an individual's pain and suffering. Final settlement awards may be worth more or less than the stated amount, depending on the injury and individual personal circumstances.
An eye injury you have sustained could be the fault of an organisation. We have seen cases where the management of leisure facilities, such as group sports, have been negligent in their provision of safety facilities or failed to provide sufficient warning of risks.
Compensation can also be claimed from the management of public places, individuals or manufacturers if a faulty product is involved.
