Injury lawyer in Moorgate
Moorgate was a postern in the London Wall originally built by the Romans. It was turned into a gate in the 15th century. Though the gate was demolished in 1762, the name survives as a major street in the City of London. The street connects the City to the London Boroughs of Islington and Hackney, and was constructed around 1846 as one of the new approaches to London Bridge.
If you are in an accident that was not your fault and sustain an eye injury or any other type of injury, you may want to use an injury lawyer in Moorgate
There are many ways in which eye injuries can happen, and what you must remember is that the eye is very delicate, so you should never try to treat it yourself. Even getting something out of your eye yourself can cause more harm than good. Some of the more common way these injuries happen include the following:
- A blow to the eye, perhaps with a fist or ball;
- Foreign bodies in the eye;
- Cuts to eyelids and eyeballs;
- Exposure to gasses or chemicals; and
- Ultraviolet light.
These are just a sample of the many things that can cause eye problems, and if any of these have happened to you through no fault of your own then you should consider using an injury lawyer in Moorgate in order to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Minor eye injuries will heal themselves
A minor irritation to the eye will heal itself over a few days, but more severe problems need medical attention as soon as possible, as some of them can lead to blindness. If you have any of the following symptoms, you should see a medical practitioner as soon as you can:
- Eye pain;
- Sensitivity to light;
- Wet eyes caused by an increase in the tears produced;
- Blurred or distorted vision;
- Eye muscles going into spasms, causing squints;
- The feeling you have something in your eye;
- Redness of the eye; and
- Difficulty keeping the eyes open.

Different eye injuries require different treatments and you should be totally guided by the specialists. Listen to what they say and do as you are told, otherwise the problem may get worse and affect your sight permanently.
