No Win No Fee Eyelid Surgery personal injury claims 

Blepharoplasty surgery, known more commonly simply as eyelid surgery, is one of the top five most popular cosmetic surgeries in the UK. The procedure removes excess skin or fat from the eyelid area, and is usually done in order to reduce the appearance of under-eye bags or hooded eyelids. This is done through the removal of fatty tissues and the tightening of the muscles. 
 
As with all cosmetic procedures, there is some level of risk and hazard involved. If you have undergone eyelid surgery and have suffered from an injury as a result, or suffered from a side effect that you were not previously warned about, you may be entitled to financial compensation from a personal injury claim. Read on to understand more about eyelid surgery personal injury claims, and how MG Legal could help you.

What types of injuries can I get from an eyelid surgery? 

It is fairly normal to experience some kinds of pain and discomfort after undergoing any kind of cosmetic surgery. This is especially true for Blepharoplasty, with the eyelids being such a sensitive and delicate area, and the procedure being fairly invasive. Eyes can be dry, itchy, sticky, sensitive to light, and painful after eyelid surgery. More often than not, doctors and surgeons may give patients medications or pain killers to help with these symptoms in the following days.  
 
This means that the recovery time for the procedure can take several weeks, or even months, even if everything has gone to plan with the surgery. This could manifest in watery, itchy, irritable, bruised, or even swollen eyes. However, when these symptoms are experienced long-term, at an elevated scale, or alongside other less common side effects, it can be a sign that there is a problem and the procedure was carried out negligently. 
 
Examples of these signs are:- 
 
Blurred or impaired vision 
Any kind of bleeding behind or around the eye 
Signs of damage to the eye itself 
Problems with closing the eye 
Drooping of either the lower or upper eyelid 
Signs of infection to skin around the area, as explained here 
 
If you are suffering one or more of these symptoms after undergoing eyelid surgery, you could be entitled to significant financial compensation. However, this is only the case if you can safely prove that the injuries that you re suffering from are a direct result of negligent behaviour from a medical professional during the surgery. 
 
Here at MG Legal, our specialist serious medical negligence solicitors have dealt with hundreds of similar cases, and are experts in ensuring that this is proved, and argued, sufficiently as your case begins. 

How much compensation could I receive for my eyelid surgery medical negligence claim? 

As with all personal injury cases, it is very difficult to establish a concrete prediction for how much financial compensation each claim will receive. 
 
However, our serious medical negligence solicitors are able to pay close reference to the most up to date guidance, the 15th edition of the Judicial College’s published guidelines, and interpret this to provide estimates for different injuries. 
These are:- 
Injury: 
Estimated compensation:  
Complete loss of sight in one eye, with risk of loss of sight in the other 
£46,240 to £51,460 
Serious loss of vision 
£22,230 to £36,960 
Minor but permanent impaired vision 
£8,550 to £19,960 
Temporary interference with vision 
£3,710 to £8200 
Transient eye injuries which are recovered from within a few weeks 
£2070 to £3710 
It is important to recognise that these figures account for general damages only, which essentially means the injury itself. They do not factor in other figures, which can often add tens of thousands of pounds to your award for general damages, including any loss of earnings, and potential loss of earnings, or care and travel costs. 

Is there a time limit to making a personal injury claim? 

If you have suffered injuries as a result of medical negligence during eyelid surgery, then you have three years from the date of the injury, or the date upon which you became aware that the injury you suffered was as a result of negligence during your eyelid procedure. 
 
Generally speaking, it would be rare for anyone under the age of 18 to pursue a claim for a personal injury arising out of a negligent cosmetic eyelid procedure. However, for those under 18 years old at the time of the injury, in that minors have three years from their 18th birthday to pursue a personal injury claim. 
 
Time limits may differ if you are acting on behalf of someone with limited mental capacity, if you are acting as guardian or subject a lasting power of attorney. If you have any questions or queries, then please do not hesitate to contact one of MG Legal’s personal injury experts, for a friendly, informative, no obligation chat.
