About eye injuries

The consequences of eye injuries can be complicated as the issues they cause can vary greatly from person to person. For example, an adult may have to change their career if they’re able to work again, whereas, for a child, lifetime implications of living with an injury or damaged eye could become problematic as the grow older.

In the case of children, accidents can happen in many more ways. For example, falling randomly while playing, damage from toys and games, burns, and so on.

Types of eye injuries

These are the most common eye injuries we have dealt with:

  • Blunt force trauma
  • Chemical burns
  • Cuts and scratches
  • Fractures and breaks
  • Foreign objects, such as grit, shavings or dust, getting into the eye
  • Laser eye surgery negligence
  • Medical negligence

Regardless of how you have been injured, if it was caused by another person’s negligence, you will be able to make a claim for compensation.

Who is responsible?

If you’ve suffered an eye injury, it could be the fault of another party or organisation. We’ve seen cases where management of leisure activities, such as group sports, have been negligent in their provision of safety facilities. In other cases, they have not given sufficient warning of risks related to the activity. If this is the case, you could have a claim against the management of the given organisation.

Compensation can also be claimed from the management of public places, individuals or manufacturers, if a faulty product is involved.

How YouClaim can help

Our team of expert solicitors has worked with a wide variety of people to help them get the eye injury compensation they deserve. We believe it’s important to claim sufficient compensation to cover the physical, emotional and long-term problems your injury will cause.
