    Compensation for industrial accident eye injuries

    Industrial accidents are sadly all too common in the workplace; the industrial setting is particularly renowned for being a dangerous work environment given that many workers have to use heavy, large and hazardous equipment.

    Working in this kind of setting is likely to increase your chances of being involved in an accident from which you sustain moderate or even severe injuries.

    Industrial accident eye injuries are sometimes suffered which could include anything from materials going into the eye as a result of no protective eye wear being worn, to more severe injuries such as the losing of an eye completely.

    Claiming compensation

    Unfortunately, we see far too many claims at Accident Advice Helpline where someone has been involved in an accident that has injured the eye or has made the injured party lose an eye altogether. Claims for compensation often result from such incidents where negligence is shown to be a contributory factor.

    With industrial accident eye injuries often being very serious, if an employee has been injured at work due to their employer not taking the necessary safety precautions, the injured party may be due compensation. If you are not sure whose fault accident was, calling us will help clarify the matter.

    How to avoid industrial accident eye injuries

    Like all accidents, most industrial accidents can be avoided; here are some simple ways in which the employer and its workers can reduce the number of accidents that occur:

    • Safety training regarding employees’ individual roles and also the working environment on the whole is vitally important. This training is the responsibility of the employer
    • Ensuring all workers have the correct safety wear, including protective goggles is also very important and, again, this is the responsibility of the company
    • Making sure the workspace is clutter-free, with only essential workers on site. Although this is the company’s responsibility, workers also play a significant role in ensuring this is done
    • Ensuring all workers appreciate the importance of working sensibly and responsibly to avoid accidents; some workplace accidents of this nature are caused by workers behaving recklessly

    To find out if you are eligible to make a claim for an accident you have recently been involved in that was not your fault, call one of our specialists at Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500.
