Eye injury claims

Our eyes are quite often a part of the body that we take for granted, and it is not until our sight deteriorates or we sustain an injury until we realise the problems this can cause.

The majority of eye health visits go as planned, but sometimes, negligence can occur.If you have suffered discomfort and pain following an injury to your eye that was not your fault, you could be entitled to make a claim. Speak to the specialist medical negligence team at Ramsdens Solicitors about your case by calling our Yorkshire-based offices.

TYPES OF EYE INJURY

Advances in technology in recent years have helped thousands of people with poor eyesight, and new treatment such as laser eye surgery has made a real change to people’s lives. Unfortunately, problems can occur in laser eye surgery procedures, and our solicitors have helped patients in such circumstances.

If your eyes have been damaged during laser eye surgery, or an alternative treatment, you could be entitled to claim compensation. We have dealt with cases surrounding the following conditions:

  • Blindness
  • Corneal haze/mistiness
  • Corneal infection
  • Corneal scarring
  • Night vision difficulties
  • Over or under correction
  • Ptosis

At Ramsdens Solicitors, we understand the sensitive nature of such cases, and we realise that even the smallest issues with your vision can be upsetting. In extreme cases, eye surgery accidents can have a devastating and long-term impact on your life, and that of your loved ones - but we are here to help.

MAKING A CLAIM

We have a great deal of experience in helping individuals to claim compensation for problems caused by eye injury. So, if your sight has deteriorated greatly, or you have lost your vision, as a result of an eye operation, our team is best placed to offer support and guidance.

During the process, we will fully investigate your claim, and will get expert reports on your vision and the impact of the surgery. If we find that your issues were caused by errors made during surgery, we can help you claim compensation.
