Injury claim solicitors in Carnoustie
Carnoustie on the Central East coast of Scotland has a rich history of linen manufacture. In the early 1900’s it was a popular tourist destination and was sometimes referred to as the ‘Brighton of the North.’
These days, Carnoustie is largely a commuter town and people live there but travel to neighbouring Dundee to work. Tourism in this part of the country declined when cheaper package holidays to the warmer climates of Europe became available. There is still one attraction in this area for tourists, however, and that is golf. Thousands of people travel to Scotland to enjoy the golf courses every year.
Recently, there have been some reports of people suffering nasty eye accidents whilst playing golf. Some unfortunate people have even lost the sight in one eye or lost the eye altogether. In some cases, it has been shown that the accident was caused by someone else’s fault and a claim for compensation has been made. One way of accessing injury claim solicitors in Carnoustie is with Accident Advice Helpline. There are some common sense guidelines on how to deal with an eye injury below.
Types of eye injuries
Types of eye injury include:
- Grazing of the cornea – a scratch or a graze to the front of the eye
- Iritis – this is sometimes called uveitis and is an inflammation of the iris – the coloured part of the eye – the muscle behind the iris and the layer of tissue between the retina and the white of the eye. This can be caused by impact from a golf ball or golf club
- Foreign bodies – for example, a piece of metal or wood
- Impact injuries – this can be caused by a golf ball or golf club
Symptoms of an eye injury
Eye injuries are extremely unpleasant. Common symptoms include:
- Pain or a burning sensation and watery eyes
- Swelling and redness around the eye
- Blurred vision, floaters or sensitivity to light
- Headaches or ache in the eyebrow region
You must seek medical attention for serious eye injuries straight away so call an ambulance and stay with the injured person until it arrives.
