Customer Question
I’m. I had eye...

I’m. I had eye Liner tattooing done on 22.12.2017 and received massive damage to my eyes and have been under eye specialist care and have not been able to return to work. The damage was “burnt cornea” to both eyes and was caused by the method of the tattoo being applied by keeping my eyes open for half hour blocks with no lubricants. The person is aware that there is a problem and refunded cash to me via a friend. I’m not sure whether to now approach her for compensation for money spent on pharmaceutical etc. she operates from her home which is sectioned off for her work.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And just to clarify, when was the purchase made?

Gold Coast, 22.12.2017

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Only with the hospital, I was attended to. If emergency department and have now appointments through outpatients even though I have private health care

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not as this stage
