Amount of Compensation

In order to promote consistency and assist the courts, personal injury solicitors and other advisers, the Judicial Studies Board publish a set of guidelines for the level of injury awards for a broad range of injuries. The information, which follows, has been taken from those guidelines. Whilst the guidelines are very useful and provide a good general indicator of the level of damages which may be paid, it should be remembered that no two cases are ever the same and general damage claims for injuries resulting from accidents will always reflect the individual circumstances of the particular in dividual and the injuries he or she has suffered and claims will be assessed accordingly.

 

Accidents Resulting in Claims for Eye Injuries

The highest awards of compensation in claims for eye injuries are made when injuries to the eyes are combined with other injuries such as deafness. Where injuries lead to complete loss of sight and total deafness, compensation awards in the region of 205, 000 should be expected.

In cases where there are devastating injuries to the eyes only and no associated loss of senses, such as loss of hearing, compensation awards should be expected to be that the level of about 140, 000.

In other claims, where for example where the accident victim's injury consists of the loss of one eye, claims may be settled for between 28,750 and 34, 000. At what level particular claims are settled in that range will depend upon the age of the victim and the cosmetic impact of the injury. The complete loss of sight in one eye would attract slightly lower compensation awards in the region of between 25,750 and 28,750 with claims at the upper end of that range being awarded where there is a good deal of cosmetic scarring.

In cases where there is partial loss of vision in one eye which in turn affects the performance of the other eye, claims may be settled somewhere between 12,500 and 20,000.

Where the impairment of vision in one eye is minor but permanent and where there is some double vision which may be intermittent, compensation awards may be paid between 6,500 and 10,750. For minor eye injuries, awards will be lower. In accidents where the victim is struck in the eye or has dangerous liquids splashed in his face, there may be initial pain and some temporary interference with vision. In those circumstances, claims may be settled between 2,000 and 4,500.

The lowest level of claims for eye injuries are reserved for those instances where the injuries are truly minor and there is complete recovery within a few weeks. Claims in those types of cases would settle between 1,000 and 2,000.

To make a claim either call Accident Aid on 0800 180 4780 or forward your query without any obligation to Accident Aid by email and you will be contacted by an accident injury lawyer who will advise as to whether you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injury and any other losses you may have sustained.
