eye injury and loss-of-sight compensation
TheYEC is in the business of offering our clients with immediate legal-representation along with arranging for rehabilitation and medical treatment and support anywhere across Scotland, England and Wales.
When you lose your sight whether it is temporary or diagnosed as permanent which resulted from a work injury, our Personal Injury Solicitors are here to assist you with an Employer’s Liability Insurance claim.
If one of or both or your eyes sustained injuries from laser eye-surgery or from a procedure involving cosmetic surgery, we can offer you with a Personal Injury Solicitor that has experience and specialises in Clinical and Medical Negligence claims. The claims can include when a health professional has failed to diagnose a condition such as cataracts or has failed to treat a condition such as glaucoma, or injuries to the tear ducts or eyes during an eye treatment.
Steps On How To Claim For Compensation For An Eye Injury
To begin with you will need to give us detailed information on how you lost your sight or how the injuries to your eyes occurred. Our solicitors will ask you how, when and where the injury occurred, and if there are any witnesses to this accident. Once we have gathered the necessary details, an experienced Personal Injury Solicitor will review the case on our No Win No Fee basis. We are then able to give you advice on if the claim should be successful or not.
If you are unsure about whether you are entitled to claim for compensation, it is important to know that there are laws that protect you regardless of where the injuries to your eyes took place. You are also able to make a claim even when you may think that you are partly to blame.
About Compensation For An Eye Injury In The Workplace
The laws in place protect individuals when it comes to accidents in the workplace, while the law also takes into account that accidents in the workplace are common. You are fully entitled for compensation when you have proof that your work accident was either completely or partly another person’s fault.
Your employer is not permitted to treat you in an unfair way or dismiss you when you claim for compensation due to eye injuries while you were at work. By law, all businesses should have Employers’ Liability Insurance that covers work related accidents. This means that the insurance company usually pays for the compensation rather than the employer.
