The loss of eyesight due to an eye injury is one of the most devastating injuries that can occur in an accident. If you have lost or partially lost your eyesight due to negligent behaviour by a third party, you may be able to bring a claim for compensation against the individual or the organisation that is at fault for your injury. On this page, you will find general information to consider before making your claim, together with details of how our personal injury team can help you.

Bringing an Eye Injury Compensation Claim

There are many different scenarios where serious eye injuries can occur due to the negligence of a third party. Below are some examples of common situations that can result in successful compensation claims against the negligent party.

  • Inadequate equipment provided in a work environment – for example, missing safety goggles, glasses, or face shields.
  • Faulty machinery or equipment in a work environment – where the employer failed to carry out regular safety inspections.
  • A lack of training to operate potentially dangerous machinery – for example, processing equipment in a factory environment.
  • Improper storage or usage of dangerous chemicals – resulting in the chemicals making contact with the employee’s eye.
  • Military or emergency services accidents – for example, injuries sustained in a combat training scenario or by paramedics responding to an emergency call.

If you have sustained an eye injury in a circumstance similar to those above, you should seek assistance with documenting exactly what happened and gathering any necessary evidence regarding the accident, for example, CCTV footage from your place of work. Should you require assistance with this, please contact our team today.
