We all think of accident claims being made because of injuries such as whiplash, or for broken bones. We seldom think of anyone making a claim because of an injury to their eyes. Our eyes are in fact very delicate and although our bodies do their best to protect them they can be very easily injured. Eye injuries can vary in severity from mild irritation to temporary or 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, even if it is temporary, 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 the best solicitors available.
Common causes of eye injuries
There are a number of common causes when it comes to eye injuries, such as:
- A direct blow to the eye – this often happens as a result of sporting activity
- Exposure to irritants such as chemicals
- Misuse of, 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 our solicitors. One of the most important aspects of an eye injury is the immediate after care and this involves getting professional advice as quickly as possible.
