If you have suffered an eye injury as a result of negligence during ophthalmic (eye) surgery, our Clinical Negligence team has plenty of experience in this area and will make a substantial compensation claim.

Compensation claims for an eye injury need to be handled by clinical negligence lawyers who are highly experienced in this very specialised and technical area of medicine, and that is exactly what our legal experts provide. We work with a team of independent medical experts to make sure that all the relevant medical and legal issues are considered before making your compensation claim for an injury suffered during eye surgery.

Examples of the type of eye injury cases in which we have made successful claims include:

  • Optic nerve damage because of raised intracranial pressure (the pressure around your brain)
  • Blindness because of failure correctly to treat diabetes
  • Inappropriate cataract surgery techniques
  • Inappropriate squint surgery
  • Defective laser eye treatment surgery, and/or inappropriate clinical advice and patient selection for the surgery.

Our clinical negligence specialists will make a substantial compensation claim to cover any effects on your social or work life, as well as the physical injury or trauma you have suffered such as loss of vision or blindness. In addition, we will seek financial compensation to help pay for any recommended specific treatments or aids to help you manage your injury in the future.

If liability is admitted while the claim is in process, our lawyers may be able to obtain an interim payment to ease your financial burden and provide for any recommended treatment or special care while your claim is concluded.

Our clients choose BL Claims Solicitors to handle their eye surgery compensation claims because:

  • We are acknowledged leaders in the field
