Can I claim compensation for my eye injury?
Common eye injuries that lead to successful compensation claims include:
- small projectiles such as stones or shards of glass entering the eye during a car accident;
- burns to the eye;
- trauma to the eye resulting in scratches, irritations or cuts;
- mistakes made during laser eye surgery
Whether you have been left with non-permanent damage to one eye, or a friend or family member has been permanently blinded, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation, assuming the accident was the result of another individual’s negligence.
Compensation awards can be anything from £1,000 for minor eye injuries to £140,000 in exceptionally severe cases, in which the accidents resulted in a total loss of sight.
