Have you suffered from Eyelid Surgery?

If you have suffered an injury to your eyes during surgery you could be entitled to make eyelid surgery claims. It is distressing and disorienting to suffer long-term injury after visiting medical professionals for a diagnosis, medical treatment or surgical procedure. Although in the vast majority of cases you will come away from a medical procedure with no issues at all, in some cases you can suffer illness or injury due to the failure of the medical professional to correctly diagnose an issue, to offer the wrong type of treatment or medication, or where medical negligence during surgery has caused complications.

At Hampson Hughes we have experience in helping those individuals who have suffered injury or illness as a result of poor medical treatment or medical negligence during surgery. Eyelid surgery claims can often be complicated, and we will do everything in our power to build a medical negligence compensation claim including sitting down with you at the very start of the process in order to ascertain the exact story, and to acquire all necessary evidence that can make a difference between a successful compensation claim and eyelid surgery claims that do not win.

  • What is Eyelid Surgery?

    Before understanding the process of eyelid surgery claims, it is important to understand the surgery itself. Blepharoplasty is eyelid surgery that is most often undertaken in order to combat the signs of ageing. Around the eyes is where the skin becomes more elastic as we get older, with the muscles loosening up and the lower eyelids beginning to droop. During eyelid surgery the fatty tissues underneath the eyes are removed, the muscles are tightened around the eye and crow’s feet in the corners of the eyes are smoothed over.
  • What Problems can You Experience with Eyelid Surgery?

    In order to perform surgery general anaesthetic is administered and the operation can sometimes be lengthy. Along the natural lines of the eyes the surgeon will make incision to remove the skin and fat. It is here that many problems can take place.

    Of course, after any surgery the patient is likely to experience discomfort and some pain in the following days and weeks. This can include swelling, watery and itchy eyes, irritation and other small complications. If, however, you experience any of the following symptoms post surgery you could be entitled to seek eyelid surgery claims for compensation:

    • Ectropion (Drooping of the lower eyelid)
    • Ptosis (Drooping of the upper eyelid)
    • Corneal damage
    • Partial blindness
    • Complete blindness
    • Blurred or impaired vision
    • Lagophthalmos (Difficulty in closing your eyes)
    • Uneven or asymmetrical eyes
    • Depression, anxiety or low moods

    For many people, eyelid surgery is undertaken in order to boost levels of self-esteem and confidence, and for some it is required surgery after an accident or other incident. The psychological impact on someone when eyelid surgery goes wrong can be devastating and long lasting. Add to that the financial impact, medical treatment, rehabilitation for both physical and mental problems, as well as the cost of any lost earnings and you can see how negative it can become.

  • Who Can I Make Eyelid Surgery Claims Against?

    If you have suffered injury or illness due to medical negligence during eyelid surgery you can may be able to make a claim for compensation. If the surgery took place within an NHS hospital or medical facility your eyelid surgery claims will be against the NHS R (NHS Resolution). For claims against private medical facilities the insurers of that facility will handle the case.
  • Is There a Time Limit on Making a Compensation Claim?

    As with all other types of medical negligence compensation there is a time limit for you to make eyelid surgery claims for compensation. You have three years from the date of the surgery, or three years from the date you realised your injuries were a direct result of the surgical procedure.
  • How Much Will it Cost me to Make Eyelid Surgery Claims?

    The cost of making an eyelid surgery claim might seem prohibitive and a stumbling block at first, but we are here to make sure you have all the help you need. Give our team a call and we can talk through all available funding options for you including any relevant insurance policies that will cover the cost of a legal claim. In the majority of cases we can act for you on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis in the form of a CFA (Conditional Fee Agreement). A CFA ensures that, should your claim for eyelid surgery compensation be unsuccessful, you will not pay a penny towards the associated costs.

  • Where do I Find Medical Negligence Solicitors?

    At Hampson Hughes we have represented many clients who have suffered illness and injury as a result of poor medical treatment and medical negligence. If you have suffered injury to your eyes after cosmetic surgery you could be entitled to seek eyelid surgery compensation. When instructing our experienced eye injury specialists, you can rest assured that you will receive friendly and experienced representation from solicitors who have helped countless individuals recover maximimum medical negligence compensation over the years.

    With our expert assistance your eyelid surgery claims can help you to recover the compensation that can contribute towards rehabilitation, medical costs, travel expenses, general damages for the injuries and distress suffered, as well as any other costs linked to loss of earnings both now and in the future that occurred as a result of your injuries.

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!!
