    Blindness claim advice


    Blindness claim advice

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we fully understand the devastating effect that the loss of sight can have on someone’s life, especially if the individual suffered the misfortune through an accident or incident through no fault of their own. That is why our experienced and sympathetic solicitors and staff are able to offer blindness claim advice.

    If you, a friend or a loved one has suffered loss of sight after being involved in an accident or incident, the key to making a claim is that you or the person suffering the blindness did not bring about their own misfortune. Any claim will be made against the person, people or body responsible for the unfortunate event.

    Unless those that are responsible admit liability, making a claim could be fraught with problems. That is why seeking legal advice is always crucial when pursuing compensation. We will not only provide blindness claim advice, but provide representation if necessary.

    If we are to provide blindness claim advice, we will need to know the circumstances surrounding the event. This is to help prove that the claimant is the innocent party and exactly who was liable. Our advice in these circumstances is to find as many witnesses to the event as possible. Their statements could be crucial. Also, if the police were involved for example, if the blindness was the result of a criminal assault or road traffic accident, then a statement from the investigating officer could also back up the claim.

    We will also seek a medical report on your condition. The report may help a court to decide the amount of damages to be awarded if the claim is successful. The compensation may also include any future expenses likely to be incurred because of your blindness.

    Many things can cause blindness. It could be caused by an injury that was sustained carrying out your job. If this happens, we will pursue an industrial injury claim against your employer. If your blindness was the result of an assault, we will claim against the guilty party. If your loss of sight was the result of an accident, we will help you to make your claim against the person or party responsible. The same applies if your blindness was the result of a road traffic accident.

    Some people are deterred from seeking expert legal advice because they fear they will be faced with legal costs that they would find difficult to pay if the blindness claim were unsuccessful. You should not have any such fears when enlisting our services here at Accident Advice Helpline. Our advice is free, and if we decide your case is strong enough to pursue a claim, we will represent you on a no win no fee basis. This means you do not have to pay us for our representation. If the claim is successful, we claim our fees and expenses from the other party. Even if the claim is lost, you still will not have to pay us anything.

    If you do win compensation for your blindness claim, our fees can usually be recovered from the losing side. Call us today on 0800 689 0500 to get started on your claim.
