Loss of Sight

Loss of sight, or blindness, is a life changing and devastating injury, with around 2 million people in the UK living with some degree of sight loss. The loss of sight may be partial or it may be total. Either way, you will need assistance from a range of professionals during your recovery process.


Loss of sight can be caused by a variety of factors and accidents. In the majority of cases, it is the extent of the injury rather than the circumstances of the accident that determines the amount of compensation that can possibly be claimed for. The circumstances of the accident can also have a bearing on the claims process and whether it is successful or not. These accidents can include:

  • Head injuries
  • Road traffic accidents
  • Falls from height
  • Criminal assault and injuries
  • Work accidents
  • Burns, scalding and scarring injuries
  • Medical negligence

If you have suffered any of the above and your eyesight has been affected, then do not hesitate to get in touch with us to see how we can help with your claim.

How much can I claim?

As every injury is personal to the victim, the amount of compensation you could receive will be personal to you. To gain an estimation of the amount of compensation you could be entitled to try our Compensation Calculator.


There is no doubt that such a devastating accident will have a long-term effect on you and your family and Hodge Jones & Allen will be there with you, every step of the way, to investigate the accident and help you make a claim. Our personal injury solicitors can establish if someone else is at fault and obtain the compensation you deserve.

They will have experience in dealing with those problems encountered by loss of sight and, be best placed to liaise with insurers, with respect to:

  • Arranging an early rehabilitation and care package
  • Gaining an early compensation or interim payment to enable you to cope with the immediate aftermath of the accident

It will take time but, that time is well spent, as you only get one chance of a financial claim for compensation so you want to make sure you have the best advice.
