    Eye Injury Compensation


    Eye Injury Compensation

    Taken for granted

    There are many things that we take for granted in our lives: the ability to watch our children play in the park, the joy of reading a book or surfing the net, the chance to drive a car, the gift of good eyesight, etc.

    Eye injuries can have a catastrophic effect on a person, taking away so many of the small pleasures of everyday life and leaving someone anxious, isolated and potentially housebound.

    Eye injuries can range from temporary sight impairment in one eye to permanent blindness in both. If you have suffered an eye injury as a result of an accident or someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to make an eye injury compensation claim.

    So how much is an eye injury compensation claim worth?

    The value of your eye injury compensation award will be based on the severity, impact and duration of your injuries. The eye is a very complex organ and the impact of eye damage can be very different depending on which part of your eye has been injured and how badly. Temporary sight loss in one eye may result in an award in the low thousands, but permanent blindness can, understandably, result in an eye injury compensation award of over £170,000, reflecting the need for major adjustments and alterations to your home and work life and the pain and suffering you may endure.

    What should I do next?

    If you are thinking about making an eye injury compensation claim, you need expert advice. Eye injuries are not straightforward and can therefore be difficult to assess – specialist support can make sure that the full impact of your injury is assessed and considered in terms of compensation.
