Damage to the eye or eyes can tremendously affect someone, and this is considered when they make a personal injury compensation claim for an eye injury. Eye injuries can be temporary or permanent, leading to vision loss, blindness, chronic pain and debilitating disorders. Blindness and severe vision loss is a disability that can permanently change the course of a person’s life.
Eyes can be injured in all kinds of events, from criminal injuries, to accidents at work, and from medical negligence to industrial diseases. People who have developed eye injuries in an accident that wasn’t entirely their fault, or in an incident that was caused by someone else’s recklessness or negligence, have the right to claim compensation for their damages.
Psychological distress is not unusual in eye injury compensation claims. Vision loss and blindness can cause anxiety, depression and other mental health problems, and coping with sight loss can be very difficult.
The compensation figures for eye injuries listed on this page only estimate the general damages of an eye injury compensation claim, but special damages can also be very sizable. Claimants can find they are no longer able to continue in their careers and experience substantial lost wages. They may require household renovations, or need to purchase specialist equipment for the blind and people with sight problems.
Claiming personal injury compensation will see you receiving all the money you deserve for your pain and suffering, as well as any other losses. This should enable you to maintain a good quality of life with serious eye injuries.
