    Injury lawyers in Reading

    Do you really need injury lawyers in Reading?

    Our eyes are very delicate, and if they are injured in an accident, then it can be very distressing for the victim — nobody likes to think of their sight being threatened.

    Unfortunately, from an itch to something much more serious, eye injuries do happen all the time. If it should happen to you in an accident that was not your fault, you should speak with injury lawyers in Reading about making a personal injury compensation claim.

    However, before you rush to find injury lawyers in Reading, consider using our services at Accidnet Advice  Helpline. Even though we are not Reading-based, we can help you with any personal injury compensation claim that you may have to make.You don’t really need injury lawyers in Reading to help.

    Eye injuries that can occur

    There are countless injuries that could happen to your eyes, but some of the main ones are:

    • Foreign bodies in the eye can cause much irritation, redness and swelling. This can vary greatly depending on what the foreign body is, and you should never try to remove it yourself as you may do more harm than good. Let the professional remove it.
    • Laser eye surgery going wrong can make your eyesight worse. Most mistakes can be corrected, but that means going through it all again with no guarantees.
    • Our eyes can be very sensitive to gasses or chemicals and react dramatically to them. Just think how bad your eyes can be when peeling an onion and imagine that many times worse.
    • A blow to the eye, perhaps with a fist or ball, can create inflammation. If the bones that surround the eye are broken, this 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
    • Ultraviolet light, exposure to the sun or sun lamps can cause flash burn to the cornea.

    If your eyes are injured in an accident that was not your fault sometime in the last three years, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim using injury lawyers in Reading or our in-house lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline.

    Some signs of eye injury

    The signs that something is wrong with your eyes can include:

    • Temporary or permanent loss of sight;
    • Blurred vision;
    • Pain in the eyes and surrounding areas;
    • Sensitivity to light;
    • Wet eyes caused by an increase in the tears produced;
    • Eye muscles going into spasms, causing squints;
    • The feeling you have something in your eye;
    • Redness or soreness of the eyes; and
    • Difficulty keeping the affected eyes open.

    If you are experiencing any of these signs, you should never mess with your eyes yourself – always seek medical attention.
