13. Loss of sight compensation
What are eye injury claims?
Eye injury claims are a type of personal injury claim for financial compensation after an accident causing injury to the eyeball, the eye socket, or the muscles and ligaments surrounding the eye. Eye injury claims can be made if your eye is injured in a wide range of different accidents, ranging from sporting accidents to the use of toxic substances in the workplace, or even due to medical negligence.
When you make an eye injury claim for financial compensation, the amount of compensation that you are entitled to will vary depending on the type of injury and its severity. Throughout this page, our no win no fee solicitors explain eye injury claims in more detail, and discuss how to make a no win no fee eye injury claim today.
How to begin an eye injury claim:
If you are looking to make a no win no fee eye injury claim, and obtain the financial compensation that you deserve for your injuries, then the first step is to get in touch with an expert no win no fee injury solicitor specialising in eye injury claims, such as MG Legal. Here at MG Legal, our eye injury solicitors have over 30 years’ experience in eye injury claims, and are here to help you obtain financial compensation.
Common Eye Injury Claims:
With the eye and the eye socket being such a complex and delicate area, our no win no fee solicitors know that there are a number of different injuries that can lead to eye injury claims being made for financial compensation by our injured clients.
Some of the most common types of eye injury claims that our injury solicitors work on include:
Damaged cornea eye injury claims- Whether it was at work, during a beauty treatment, or in any other way, if a small amount of debris is in the eye, or a piece of equipment pokes the exposed eye, it is very easy for the cornea to become scratched. This can be painful, and can affect the sight if it is not medically treated in due time, as well as increasing the risk of infection due to the bacteria in the eye. If you have a scratched cornea or damaged cornea that was caused by the negligence of someone else, you could be eligible to make a no win no fee eye injury claim with our solicitors today.
Chemical substances eye injury claims- With so many chemicals in cleaning products, beauty products, and other products used in day -to -day life, it is not uncommon for clients to approach our personal injury solicitors to make eye injury claim after they have been injured by a chemical getting into their eyes. Depending on the type of chemical that has been splashed in the eye, this could lead to permanent sight damage, and requires immediate medical attention. If you were at work, in a public place, or anywhere else where your safety was in the hands of another person or company, then you could be eligible to make a no win no fee eye injury claim for your injuries, on the basis that this other party had a legal requirement to prevent injury to you at the time.
How much is my eye injury claim worth?
As is the case with all types of personal injury claims, the amount of financial compensation that you will be entitled to, and your claim will be worth depends largely on what category of severity that your injury falls into. All personal injury claims are different, and so it is impossible to accurately estimate an exact number that your injury could win until the claim process begins. It is also important to remember that any estimation of predicted financial compensation covers only the injury, or general damages, itself.
This amount does not take into account added compensation that your claim could include, such as any loss of earnings, potential loss of future earnings, or any medical and care costs. Our specialist injury solicitors have put together the Judicial College’s guidelines for general damages alone for some eye injuries in the table below:

What can I claim for in an eye injury claim?
When you make an eye injury claim for financial compensation, your claim will be broken down into two different sections. The first part of your eye injury claim, known as special damages, will be worked out on an individual basis, based on the extent to which your daily life has been impacted by your injuries, as well as your ability to work and any extra costs you have experienced. Special damages can include a number of things, including lost earnings, medication, travel costs, and care costs. This financial compensation aims to put you in the financial position you would have been in had the eye injury not happened.
Here at MG Legal, our no win no fee solicitors go above and beyond to always ensure that our injured clients receive the total amount of compensation they deserve. The other part of your eye injury claim, known as general damages, is compensation for the pain and suffering that your injuries have caused. When you choose to work with MG Legal's solicitors on your eye injury claim, and we accept your NO WIN NO FEE eye injury claim, you will be assigned a designated personal injury solicitor to your claim, who will go above and beyond to accurately calculate the value of your claim, and win the maximum amount of financial compensation that you, quite rightly, deserve.
Eye injury at work claims:
When you are at work, no matter the terms of your employment, your employer has a legal responsibility to ensure that a safe working environment is provided, and that the necessary safety measures are in place. This includes providing proper training on using hazardous chemicals, when to use PPE, and ensuring that adequate PPE is provided to employees at all times when using certain machinery, equipment and chemicals.
Optician negligence eye injury claims:
If you have suffered from an eye injury, whether short term or long term, due to negligent optician care, you could be eligible to make an eye injury claim for financial compensation.
Examples of optician negligence include:
inadequate examination that fails to identify a potential condition which progressively worsens and damages a patient’s eyesight over time
Prescribing the wrong strength lenses for glasses or contact lenses leading to injury
Injuries caused by faulty equipment
Detached retina compensation:
If you have suffered from a detached retina after an accident that was not your fault, or from a delayed diagnosis and treatment of a detached retina, our no win no fee solicitors are here to help. Most detached retinas can be successfully reattached with surgery and there are a number of different types of surgery available, but the longer the retina is left detached, the harder it will be to treat and the less favourable will be the outcome.
While it can be difficult to diagnose a detached retina, medical professionals should be able to suspect the condition and refer the patient for urgent assessment by a specialist. When this does not happen, it is more likely that you will experience long term vision loss as a result.
To speak to a medical negligence solicitor about making a no win no fee retinal detachment claim, and how much your claim might be worth, do not hesitate to get in touch with MG Legal’s medical negligence solicitors online here, for a free no obligation consultation with a solicitor within one working hour.
Beauty treatment eye injury claims:
Many beauty treatments, whether it be eyelash extensions, LVL lashes, eyelash tint, dermal filler, tear trough filler, eyebrow lamination, or eyebrow tinting, pose a risk of injury to the eye if proper care is not taken but the beautician, or if they are not properly trained in how to safely carry out the treatment.
If you have suffered from an eye injury after a beauty treatment, and the practitioner acted negligently in any way, you could be able to make a no win no fee claim for financial compensation. Some examples of negligence leading to beauty treatment claims include:
Failure to properly warn you of the risks involved
Eye injury in public place claims:
If you have suffered from an eye injury in a public place, the process of making a no win no fee eye injury claim can vary. Still, this will be handled by your specialist solicitor, and regardless of where liability lies in your eye injury claim, the process will be simple for you.
If you have suffered an eye injury in a location or establishment operated by a private company, such as a supermarket, gym, swimming pool, or pub, then your no win no fee eye injury claim will be filed against the owner of the establishment or the company in charge.
Alternatively, for accidents in public places maintained by the council or local authority, your no win no fee solicitor will make your eye injury claim for financial compensation against the local authority themselves. Examples of local authority claims new those that occur on public play areas, libraries, or on local footpaths. To make an eye injury claim for an accident in a public place, get in touch with MG Legal’s personal injury solicitors online here, and speak to a solicitor about your potential claim on a no obligation basis.

Teenage boy wins lifetime care and support in his medical negligence eye injury claim:
A teenage boy who has suffered from vision loss due to medical negligence as a child has won his bid to be provided with specialist lifetime care for his condition. The boy suffers from a degenerative condition affecting his eyesight which has left him visually impaired, and he has undergone over 50 operations over the years in order to try and restore his sight, however they have been unsuccessful.
Because of his condition, the boy’s family took legal action in the form of an eye injury claim with a medical negligence solicitor, and have won High Court approval regarding a financial settlement inwhich specialist lifetime care, therapies and support will be funded. Our medical negligence solicitors were saddened to hear of this serious medical negligence claim for the teenage boy, and are glad to hear of the family’s success in achieving funding for specialist lifetime care, therapies and support.
This eye injury claim is particularly serious. However, our eye injury solicitors know that medical negligence can cause eye injuries of all kinds, both serious and minor. If you or your loved one have suffered from an eye injury, or affected vision, due to the negligence of another person or company, then you could be eligible to make a no win no fee claim for financial compensation through an eye injury claim today. Simply contact our no win no fee eye injury solicitors online here for a free no obligation consultation within one working hour.
How long do I have to make an eye injury claim?
As with all standard personal injury claims, you have three years within which to make an eye injury claim after the date of the accident causing the injury. This is subject to the 1980 Limitation Act. Still, if you were not initially aware of the eye injuries that you suffered until a later day, this becomes known as the date of knowledge, and the three year period starts instead from this date.
All eye injury claims are different, and there is no saying how long a particular claim will take to build, or how long it will take our personal injury solicitors to gather all of the medical and legal evidence available. Because of this, our specialist eye injury solicitors would advise all potential clients to contact us as soon as possible, so that we can get to work on building your eye injury claim, and obtain the maximum financial compensation available for you as our client.
