Injuries that impact the senses can be distressing and painful to work through. Whether you have suffered an eye injuries at work or suffered injury due to medical negligence or other cause, you do have the right to seek eye injury compensation.
Eye injuries can cause long-term damage to the individual who has suffered, affecting the ability to work, to perform daily tasks and to live the same standard as of life as they previously did.
At Hampson Hughes we understand that every single case and person is different to the next. One person may be seeking fractured eye socket compensation after an accident in the workplace, where another person is asking ‘how much is the compensation for an eye injury?’ after suffering medical negligence during treatment. Our friendly team of professional eye injury lawyers are here to listen to your story. We can help you to recover eye injury compensation that can make a real difference to your life moving forward.
There are a few different scenarios where eye injuries can occur, and we have split these into areas below so you understand who you can make eye injury claims against, should you have suffered injury such as blindness, temporary sight loss, and permanent eye disfigurement.
Accident at Work – If you are injured in the workplace you can claim work injury compensation from your employer. If they have failed to maintain safe systems of working practice, safe machinery and equipment, failed to provide adequate facilities for training, supervision and workplace instruction leading you an accident that has caused your injury, you are may be entitled to claim.
Car Accident – If you have been involved in an accident on the road that was not your fault you could be entitled to claim road traffic accident compensation. You can claim eye injury compensation from the owners of the other driver or vehicle, if they were partially or fully at fault for the accident that caused your eye injuries.
Injury on Someone Else’s Property – The owners of property (whether public or private) have a duty of care to protect people entering their land from injury or illness. This can be preventing slippage on flooring, or debris from a building site or other hazards that are not well signposted or warned.
Medical Negligence – If a misdiagnosis, delayed treatment or a negligent medical procedure has led to problems with your sight or injury to the eyes you can claim compensation. This will be against either the NHS Resolution or the insurers linked to a private medical institution, depending on where you were treated.
With most personal injury compensation the claim has to be submitted within three years of the incident taking place, or three years since you discovered the injuries linked to the incident (whichever date is later). For children under the age of 18, the date is three years from their 18th birthday.
We are happy to discuss a ‘No Win, No Fee’ Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) with you regarding your eye injury compensation claim and we can also discuss other relevant insurance policies and funding avenues that will help you cover your legal costs. If your claim is unsuccessful you will not have to pay a penny. Contact us today to discuss our No Win, No Fee funding options that are available for any eye injury compensation claims.
There are a few things that we can advise you on as your eye injury lawyer. One of those is the amount of eye injury compensation you are entitled to. This figure will vary from case to case as medical negligence leading to blindness is a very different case to a fractured eye socket compensation case for instance. The variables that help to decide the figure include:
The severity of the injury;
The age of the claimant;
The health of the claimant prior to the incident;
The lifestyle of the claimant pre-incident;
Occupation of the claimant;
Likely impact of the incident on the rest of the claimant’s life.
Your eye injury claim will be investigated thoroughly by our team, and there are several things that you can claim as part of your compensation and expenses. These include:
General Damages – compensation for pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused as a result of medical negligence
Medical Expenses – covering the cost of specialist care, future rehabilitation costs and private healthcare –

Travel Expenses – including all transportation between hospital and home, and the birth injury solicitors office and home

I would like to say huge thanks for all staff from Hampson Hughes Solicitors for the Services which I received during my claim. I highly recommended to others and consider to use again in future if need it. You very professional and polite and helpful.
Great service from start to finish. My solicitor was always happy to explain what was happening and in the end, he got me more compensation than what the insurance company were going to offer me. Glad I used them to look after my claim and I've just had my cheque earlier than expected today!!
Fantastic service, the attention to all the details was super impressive. They kept me updated throughout the whole process and got my case solved really quickly. I can't recommend them highly enough!
