Eye injury group action cases can mean representing some of the most seriously injured people there can be when this vital sense is harmed or adversely affected by a problem.
We have, and still do, represent people claiming in group/multi-party cases for eye injury claims. If you need advice about an ongoing action, or about a potential new action, we are always happy to hear from you.
Eye injury group action claims
Eye injury group action legal cases can come in many forms. Whilst we can all be grateful for the advances in technology and medicine that can allow us to improve our vision as one of the most important senses there is, this is a sensitive part of the body. Any kind of injury to it can lead to permanent and serious injuries, including partial or full blindness.
It is for this reason that any form of corrective lenses or products like drops and medications must be stringently investigated prior to approval. It is also why it is so important that the manufacturing and supply chain is always safe with strict quality control measures to ensure that the risk of contaminated products or devices is removed.
We have taken forward group and multi-party claims for compensation for people where devices like lenses have had some form of flaw or problem that has caused injuries and suffering. Equally, we can also investigate matters of contamination or defects that arise in specific batches.
Ultimately, if your vital senses of sight have been in any way harmed or impacted by some form of negligence, we may be able to pursue an eye injury group action. Whether you want to join a current action we may already be pursuing, or to talk to us confidentially about a prospective new action, we are always happy to hear from you.
A recent recall example
To give you an example of a situation where an eye injury group action could arise, we can look at recent recalls and problems publicised by the UK’s medical regulator, the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency),
Whilst this example does not mean there is an eye injury group action to pursue, it can give you an idea of what we mean. According to the MHRA, a Class 2 Medicines Recall has been initiated that involves Santen UK Limited and is in relation to “IKERVIS 1 mg/mL eye drops, emulsion, EU/1/15/990/001”. The issue that has been reported is as a precaution due to the reported detection of particles/crystals in the active pharmaceutical ingredient known as ciclosporin, affecting some batches.
Whether this issue will lead to anyone suffering at all, we simply do not know. Hopefully it will not. The reason that we reference this example is to show you what we mean in terms of contamination issues. Of course, if this issue does affect you and you have suffered any form of harm, you should speak to the legal team as soon as you can.
