Claiming for your eye injury
Can you make a claim for your eye injury?
We know that suffering an eye injury can put your life on hold. Eye injuries are often painful and they can take a long time to recover from. In some severe cases they can even cause permanent damage with life-changing consequences.
Injuries can cause you to have to take time off work and pay for travel, prescriptions or treatment that you wouldn’t normally have to pay for, leaving you out of pocket.
We believe that you deserve to be financially compensated if you’ve suffered an eye injury because of an accident caused by somebody else’s negligent behaviour.
If you’ve had an accident in the last three years, the accident was caused by somebody else and you’re suffering with an eye injury as a result, then it’s likely we can help you make a compensation claim.
What’s involved in making a claim?
We try to make the process of finding out if you can claim and starting your claim as simple as possible.
Simply put, it’s likely you have a claim if:
- You’ve been injured in the last three years
- Somebody else was at fault for your injury
If you’re unsure, you can get in touch with us on 0800 540 4258 and our legally trained advisors will be able to let you know whether they think you can claim.
During your call with us, we’ll listen to what you have to say about your experience and will ask you some questions so that we can fully understand your situation.
We’ll then let you know if we think you have a claim. If you do and you’re happy to continue, we’ll put you in contact with one of our specialist solicitors who can talk you through the claims process.
During the phone call, your solicitor will ask you some more questions about your accident and your recovery. They’ll also speak to you about our no win no fee agreement and answer any questions you have.
If you’re happy to start your claim, they’ll then get in touch with the responsible party and negotiate on your behalf so that you get the full amount of compensation you’re owed.
Have you lost your sight?
Some eye injuries result in loss of sight. This could be temporary, partial or permanent. Either way the experience of losing your sight in one or both eyes is traumatic and an experience that nobody should have to suffer.
If you’ve lost your sight in any capacity due to an accident that wasn’t your fault, then it’s likely we can help you make a compensation claim.

Are you reading this on someone’s behalf?
If you’re reading this on behalf of a friend or family member who has suffered an eye injury, we can help. We know that in distressing times, it’s often friends and relatives who think about financial compensation and support.
As the UK’s most trusted personal injury specialists we can offer you free advice about making a claim. If you’d like to find out whether you could make a claim on behalf of a loved one or you’re simply looking for advice, you can contact us on 0800 540 4258 .

Eye injury compensation
Your compensation could help to cover the impact of your injury. This includes the physical injury, the emotional impact and the financial cost to you.
This means that when your solicitor negotiates your compensation, they consider and use a number of different factors to try and secure you the maximum amount of compensation you deserve.
This includes any:
- Loss of earnings caused by taking time off work for your injury
- Future loss of earnings if you’re no longer able to work the same hours, or the same job
- Loss of earnings your loved ones have suffered because of your injury
- Care you’ve received, whether free or paid for
- Loss of ability and participation in sports, hobbies or free time activities
- Extra costs you’ve had to cover, such as travel costs and paying for prescriptions
If your injury has resulted in other costs not listed above, they’ll also be considered by your solicitor when you make your claim.
You can also get a guideline figure of how much your claim might be worth by using our compensation calculator.
