Will I have to pay anything?
No Win No Fee means you won't have to pay anything up front, so there's no risk to you, as we only take a fee if we win compensation on your behalf. This is a very popular way of doing things, which is why we handle around 98% of our cases as No Win No Fee claims.
Will I have to have a medical for my eye claim?
Yes, but that's a good thing. Your eyes are really important, so seeing an eye expert to check how bad the damage may be, is in your best interest. It's also the best way for you to help us claim every penny of the compensation you deserve.
Will I have to go to court for an eye claim?
In most cases, eye injury claims are settled between lawyers. So apart from going to see an eye expert at our expense, most cases like this are dealt with over the phone, or you can visit one of our lawyers' offices near where you live if you prefer. Some eye injury claims do mean having to go to court, but this is very, very rare. In any case, hearings like this are mainly held in small offices, not big courtrooms.
Can I claim if laser eye surgery went wrong?
Absolutely. And it doesn't matter if you signed a form beforehand to say that the laser surgery clinic wasn't to blame if something went wrong. If you went in for laser eye surgery to improve your sight and it has been made worse, or your eyes have been damaged, the clinic is almost certainly at fault.
What can I claim for?
Where you have been injured and someone else was to blame, you may be entitled to claim compensation for all sorts of things, including:
- Loss of earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of sight
- Special glasses
- Future medical treatment
- Necessary changes to your home
If any or all of these things are relevant to your claim, they will all be added together to make up a ‘full and final' settlement of your eye injury claim.
Who's to blame for my eye injury?
We all have a responsibility not to hurt other people, whether we're in the street, at home, or at work. So if someone has caused you an injury - by accident or on purpose - you may be entitled to claim compensation. Most eye injuries happen in the workplace, due to unsafe equipment or a lack of safety glasses. But you can get eye injuries in all sorts of ways, including from slips, trips and falls. These are some of the most common types of eye injury:
- Workplace injuries: caused by faulty equipment or a lack of safety goggles
- Clinical negligence: through laser eye surgery or another operation
- Car accidents: where glass has entered your eye
But however you got an eye injury, you may be entitled to compensation. Talk to one of our friendly advisors now on 0800 175 7900.
