The long term effects of an eye injury

At Accident Advice Helpline, we can cater for you or someone you know if the long term effects of an eye injury are being experienced. Many eye injuries can be cleared up within 24 hours with the right amount of treatments such as rinsing and painkillers, but if problems persist after this period it’s essential that you seek out medical attention. We deal with a wide range of eye injury claims and could be able to help you whether your accident occurred at work, in a public place or out on the road.

What may be the long term effects of an eye injury?

Let’s take a look at some of the long term effects of an eye injury right now. You could be due a large payment if your accident has left you completely blind, or left you blind in one eye with poor vision in the other. You could be due compensation if you have lost an eye, lost sight in one eye and if you’ve faced some but not complete visual impairment. You could even make a claim if you endured a temporary problem with your eye or eyes that forced you out of work for weeks, or gave you short-term blindness or pain.

If, 24 hours after your accident, you’ve been unable to wash out a foreign body, are in persistent pain, are seeing things that aren’t really there, like spots and flashing lights, or have noticed blood in your eye, see a medical professional as your injuries could be serious. They may be able to take many different steps, including removing foreign bodies, prescribing antibiotics or even arranging an operation if things don’t improve despite other forms of treatment.

We always aim to get you the highest amount of compensation possible and will match you up with the right kind of solicitor for your needs.
