    Eye injury claims

    All of our senses are important for our wellbeing and the prospect of losing our sight through an eye injury is very worrying. When you think about how you could develop an eye injury, there are countless ways in which the delicate structures of the eye could become damaged. One of the most common ways involves an object or liquid entering the eye. This can cause damage to the tissues within the eye and that damage may be permanent. The eye can also be cut, knocked or pierced and can even be damaged if very bright lights, such as lasers, are shone into them.

    What happens when your eye is injured?

    The symptoms of an eye injury are very variable but most can be grouped in one of two categories. The first is a loss of sight – which may be partial or complete and may be temporary or permanent. The second is pain and discomfort. There may also be cosmetic changes which alter the appearance of the eye.

    Treating an eye injury straight away will give your sight the best chance of recovering and will ease the discomfort that you are experiencing. For this reason it is always advisable to seek medical attention straight away after you receive an eye injury. This is likely to be in an Accident and Emergency Department of a hospital. If your eye injury was not your fault, you may be able to start a personal injury claim to get some compensation for the injury itself and for the money that you have lost because you are injured.

    You may find that the long term effects of an eye injury can be very expensive as well as inconvenient. You may require specialist equipment and adaptations to your home and you may not be able to work in the way that you did before you were injured. This can result in a loss of income and your family’s finances may be put under a lot of pressure. Personal injury compensation can relieve some of that pressure.
