The causes of eye injuries that might mean you want to use injury lawyers in Tutbury
An eye injury can vary greatly from a slight irritation to loss of sight, and there can be many causes of the injury. Just some of them are:
- A blow to the eye, perhaps with a fist or ball, which can create inflammation, and if the bones that surround the eye are broken, can push the eye further back in its socket
- 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
- Exposure to gasses or chemicals
- Ultraviolet light, exposure to the sun or sun lamps can cause flash burn to the cornea
No matter how the injury happened, if you were the faultless victim of an accident some time in the last three years, you may want to speak with injury lawyers in Tutbury about making a personal injury compensation claim.
Seeking medical attention
Minor eye injuries will usually clear up by themselves without medical intervention, but if you have persistent pain, pain when the eye is exposed to light, altered vision or a foreign body in your eye, you should see your doctor or local A & E as soon as possible.
Our eyes are very delicate and you should not try and treat the eye or remove a foreign body from your eye yourself – you could do more harm than good.
