Injury lawyer Lybster
Lybster is a village on the east coast of Caithness in Northern Scotland. It was once a big herring fishing port, but has declined in recent years, due to problems in the industry. In a large port, just like anywhere else, accidents happen all the time. If you sustained an eye injury in an accident that was not your fault, you may want to consider talking to an injury lawyer Lybster.
An injury lawyer Lybster can help with your eye injury claim
If you have been the blameless victim of an accident, in which you sustained an eye injury that needed medical attention, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim. Eye injuries can vary greatly from an itch to loss of sight, and should never be disregarded, because what starts off quite simple can end up horrific.
How it happens
There are many ways eye injuries happen, but some of the more common ones are:
- Exposure to gasses or chemicals
- Ultraviolet light, exposure to the sun or sun lamps can cause flash burn to the cornea
- A blow to the eye, perhaps with a fist or ball. This can create inflammation, and if the bones that surround the eye are broken, can push the eye further back in its socket. A blow can cause bleeding to the eye and very occasionally cause the retina to become detached, which if not treated will lead to permanent loss of sight
- Foreign bodies in the eye, the severity will depend on what substance is in the eye and whether it has cut the eye or not
- Cuts to eyelids and eyeballs
If any of these have happened to you, you may want to use an injury lawyer Lybster to help with your personal injury claim.
The symptoms of eye injuries
Everyone is unique and will have varying degrees of repercussions from their injuries. Just some of the things you may experience are:
- The feeling you have something in your eye
- Redness of the eye
- Eye Pain
- Sensitive to light
- Wet eyes caused by an increase in the tears produced
- Blurred or distorted vision
- Eye muscles going into spasms causing squints
- Difficulty keeping the affected eyes open
The treatments of eye injuries
Minor eye irritations will usually clear up by themselves, but if you are in pain you should seek medical attention without delay. As treatment for the eyes is very specialised, you should be guided by the medical practitioner, but never try and remove anything from your eye yourself as you may do more harm than good.
