We all think of traffic accident claims being made because of injuries such as whiplash, or for broken bones. We seldom think of anyone making car accident and injury claims in Colchester because of an injury to their eyes. Our eyes are in fact very delicate and although our bodies do our best to protect them they can be very easily injured. Eye injuries can vary in severity from mild irritation to the temporary of complete loss of sight. Eye injuries normally need specialist attention and can be extremely painful. If you or anyone you know have suffered an eye injury then it is important to seek medical advice as soon as possible. This is particularly important if you intend to make a claim for compensation through car accident and injury claims in Colchester.
Car accident and injury claims in Colchester – common causes of eye injuries.
There are a number of common causes when it comes to eye injuries.
- A direct blow to the eye, this often happens as a result of sporting activity but can also happen in an accident while driving.
- Exposure to irritants such as chemicals.
- Misuse or faulty sun beds and sun lamps.
- Foreign bodies.
- Cuts and abrasions.
If you have suffered any of the above and the situation arose because of someone else’s negligence then you have every right to make a claim for compensation through a suitable injury lawyer.
