Eye claims

If there has been a delay diagnosing or treating an eye condition or you have suffered complications during treatment, you may have a claim for compensation.

Janine Collier, Cambridge

Starting your claim for an eye problem

Losing your sight, partially or wholly, can be extremely distressing. It can restrict your independence and mobility, and make it hard to earn a living. You may have to make big changes to your life. 

If you suspect the damage to your vision has been caused by negligence, you need to take action – not least because your future may be uncertain with lots of new costs to meet. We have expert solicitors who can help you to take the next step.

How we can help you

You should speak to an experienced solicitor who specialises in medical negligence and who can explain your legal position in simple terms. You may be entitled to financial compensation to meet the costs for specialist equipment and long-term care. 

Clear, practical advice

When you come to us for help, we’ll listen carefully to your story and we’ll ask you what outcome you might want. Then we’ll use our knowledge and experience to look closely at the details of your case and give you clear, honest and realistic advice. We’ll explain your options in plain language and recommend a way forward.

We’ll keep you up-to-date on what’s happening via face-to-face meetings, telephone calls, or email. We can use magnified, contrast-enhanced print, altered type font and size – whatever works best for you.

We’ll find out what went wrong

We understand that you’ll probably want to know why things went wrong, and you’ll want to make sure it doesn’t happen to anybody else.   We can help you do that.

Financial compensation

We will tell you if you have a case for compensation. 

We understand that every claim is different, so we take the time to understand how your treatment has affected you, your family and your income; what your future needs are, whether treatment, care, specialist equipment and so on; and how much it will cost.

We will help you get the best possible financial settlement for your needs.

With you every step of the way 

You might already have tried to talk to doctors about your condition but sometimes it can feel like you’re on your own. With Tees by your side, you are not.  We understand what you're going through, and we're here to give you a voice. 

We've handled many medical claims and so, our lawyers really do have the practical experience to support you. We're persistent, and we'll fight to get answers for you. Whether you’re looking to secure financial compensation or you just want to understand what happened, you can be confident that we’ll be with you all the way.

We’ll deal with your case as quickly and efficiently as we can, with sympathy and understanding. Everything we do is geared towards getting you the best possible result. We’ll explain things in plain English and we’ll always keep you informed of what’s going on. You can be confident that we’re fixed on getting the result that helps you to begin putting your life back together.

If you need further treatment, we'll help you get it, and ensure that your compensation covers the cost.

This is a difficult time for you, so we’ll do all we can to get a quick solution for you. We’ll be there beside you throughout the process, guiding you, giving you the best professional legal advice, and making sure you also get the right result.

Don’t worry about costs 

We won’t charge you to assess your case – it’s free. After that, you can pursue your case in different ways without you having to pay the costs as it proceeds, for example, with insurance or a no-win no-fee agreement. We’ll discuss the options with you once we’ve completed the initial assessment, but if you want to know more now, get in touch.
