    Compensation Claim Tedburn St Mary


    Our eyesight is something that the vast majority of us are fortunate enough to take for granted, even if it isn’t strictly “perfect” 20/20 vision.

    Loss of sight compensation claim in Tedburn St Mary

    Losing your eyesight is a devastating experience, one most of us are fortunate enough to never experience.  Loss of eyesight can be temporary or permanent, partial or complete (resulting in total blindness).  It is a totally life changing event and if your eyesight loss has been caused by an accident or injury you may want to investigate making a compensation claim in Tedburn St Mary.

    Accidents that can cause loss of sight

    There are a vast majority of incidents that can result in either full or partial loss of eyesight.  For example:

    • Chemicals – exposure to certain chemicals through splash-back and spillages can result in blindness.  These sorts of accidents usually (but not always) occur within a work environment, in which case your employer has a duty of care to ensure such accidents do not occur.
    • Bright lights – exposure to bright lights, certainly over a prolonged period of time, can cause blindness.  These are also often associated with work environments.
    • Trauma – if you have been involved in an accident, perhaps a road traffic accident, where you have sustained a significant head trauma there is a chance the injury will have been so severe as to cause blindness. If the accident was not your fault you might be entitled to make a compensation claim in Tedburn St Mary.
    • Sharp objects – your eye(s) might have been injured as a result of a sharp object penetrating them. This could happen in a variety of situations including a road traffic accident, in the work place or in a public place if proper health and safety guidelines have not been followed.
    • Clinical negligence – you might be left blind as a result of clinical negligence, for example, if laser eye surgery has gone wrong, incorrect prescriptions for contact lenses and/or medication, or even a misdiagnosis of a disease/condition that, if recognised and treated earlier, would not have resulted in either partial or full loss of eye sight.
