No Win No Fee Laser Eye Surgery personal injury claims 

With the accuracy and availability of the procedures growing over time, there is no denying that laser eye surgery has become a popular choice in recent years, for those who suffer from impaired vision. 
 
Still, this is not without risk. The Royal College of Ophthalmologists has suggested that around one in twenty of the patients who undergo laser eye surgery suffered from some kind of complications.

Common injuries suffered from laser eye surgery: 

All laser surgeries use an intense high-powered beam of light to imitate a regular incision. This is a complex procedure with obvious risks involved, and unfortunately sometimes things can, and do, go wrong. 
 
Some of the most common issues that can arise as a result of laser surgeries are: 
 
Complete or partial blindness- either temporary or permanent. This is tested by a simple eye test involving reading values on an eye chart from a distance, and can occur in around 1 in 100 laser eye surgeries, to varying degrees. It can sometimes be caused by an allergic reaction to the anaesthetic eye drops involved.  
Worsened eyesight 
Damaged, or scarred, cornea- this could also include an infected cornea after surgery, and is only found in less than 1 in 5000 procedures.  
Reduced night vision that is semi-permanent or permanent in nature 
Sensitivity to light and glare. 
Long term dryness of the eyes- The eye that is affected may have some problems with producing tears after having the procedure completed. This will also make the eyes be prone to later infections. It is related to nerve damage to the surface of the eye and them being cut or teared.  
Possible Haemorrhage to the eye- this involves increased pressure in the eye area leading to the blood vessels becoming damaged to some degree, and blood leaking into the white area of the eye and causing pain and further problems.  

How much will I win for my laser eye surgery personal injury claim? 

As with all aspects of personal injury, the amount that you could be entitled to as a result of your surgery depends on the kinds of injury that you have sustained, and the severity of them. 
 
Still, it is possible for our expert medical negligence solicitors to establish estimates for our clients regarding how much compensation they could be entitled to. They do so by paying close reference to the Judicial College’s most up to date guidelines for the assessment of general damages in personal injury. 
Injury: 
Expected financial compensation:  
Loss of sight in one eye 
£46,240 to £51,460 
Minor but permanent impaired vision in one or both eyes 
£8,550 to £19,690 
Minor eye injuries- initial pain and temporary interference with vision 
£3,710 to £8,200 
Transient eye injuries- affecting the person for only a few weeks 
£2,070 to £3,710 
When referring to these figures, we must remember that they cover only general damages, or the injury itself. They do not in any way include other figures, such a such as loss of earnings, potential loss of earnings, or care costs, which could add large amounts of money onto the compensation. For a full overview of general damages, see here. 

Do I have a time limit to make my negligence claims for eye surgery? 

In line with the 1980 Limitation Act in England and Wales, claimants have a maximum of three years to make any personal injury or medical negligence claim for injuries that were not their fault. This time limit is rather strict, and stands for the date at which the claim needs to be complete and ready to pursue. For this reason, our medical negligence team would always advise our clients to begin the claim as early as possible from when you are aware of the injuries or illnesses that you have sustained.  
 
If a claim is being made by a minor, this limit does not stand. They will have three years from when they turn 18, so until their 21st birthday to pursue their claim, It is also not applicable in the case of completing a claim and acting for somebody with limited mental capacity.
