The loss of sight or blindness can be a devastating and life-changing injury. The loss of sight may be partial or may be total loss of sight (blindness). It could also be temporary or permanent.
There are many different possible causes for loss of sight but sometimes an injury such as this is sadly due to an accident or somebody else’s negligence. At Hattons we have a dedicated serious injury team who are experienced in dealing with claims for loss of sight. We will fight on your behalf to get you the compensation you deserve.
If you are involved in an accident which was not your fault which results in you becoming blind in one or both eyes you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim. You may also be able to claim compensation if negligent medical treatment results in your loss of sight.
In our experience we have found loss of sight to be due to accidents at work, road traffic accidents or medical negligence, however this list is not exhaustive. Hattons Solicitors can visit you in your home if requested and talk you through the process of making a claim talking on your terms and cutting out the legal jargon.
The amount of compensation will depend on what exactly your eye problem is, whether it causes you pain, how long the symptoms last and how it affects your ability to enjoy your life. It will also take into account any financial losses you have incurred as a result of loss of sight.
We can advise you on the best options and answer any concerns or questions that you have before processing any claim.
We work closely with our clients to keep informed about their claim and our clients can also access our online file view system to find out where their case is up to at their own convenience.
