    Partial blindness claim


    Partial blindness claim

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we can help you to make a partial blindness claim compensation, as we have done this for thousands of others. If you’ve been left with eye damage by an accident or poor conditions that were somebody else’s fault, you could be entitled to claim. You can call our staff at any time of the day or night to find out more.

    How bad does my eyesight need to be?

    If you’ve had an injury within the past three years that has left you with eye damage, it is highly likely that you will be able to claim. Even if your problems are only minor, you should still be entitled to compensation for your suffering. If your eye damage developed slowly after a long period of being exposed to poor conditions at work, you may be given special permission to claim even after the three-year limit. Anyone whose eyes were damaged when they were children can claim any time up until their 21st birthdays.

    Even minor eye damage is taken seriously by the legal system, although the amount of compensation you will receive is likely to depend on how severely your injury affects you. This may depend to an extent on professional and lifestyle factors. If you used to work as a photographer, for example, or you have a young family to support, you would be likely to receive a higher payout than an older person, or someone who is still able to work as well as they did before.

    Making a claim

    If you decide to make a partial blindness claim, our advisors can put you in contact with a solicitor who has the right kind of expertise to help you. Exactly what this is will depend on the cause of your partial blindness. Most of your communication with your solicitor can be done by phone, so if you can’t drive and struggle to use public transport then we can work around the problem. If you need to read over and sign documents, we can arrange for them to be in large print or make other arrangements as required.

    Most of the paperwork will be dealt with directly by your solicitor and it will be up to you how closely involved you want to be. We realise that everyone’s needs are different. We work on a no win no fee basis, so you won’t need money to begin your claim and we won’t take a fee if you lose.

    How compensation could help

    Money may not seem to be much of a help when your sight is damaged, but in fact it could make your life a lot easier. It could pay for equipment, such as a screen reader to help you to communicate; it could pay for specialist training to help you get around more easily; it could pay for counselling to help you adjust to your situation emotionally. Consideration will be given to your particular needs when a settlement is reached. This is all about helping to make your life easier.
