Eye injury claims
If you are in an accident that was not your own fault, and you end up injuring your eyes, you should contact a personal injury lawyer in Pyecombe to see if you can make a personal injury compensation claim.
Your eyes are very delicate, and if they are injured in the accident then you might be very distressed, as people do not like to think about their eyes being threatened.
Unfortunately, from an itch to something much more serious, eye injuries happen all the time, and if it should happen to you in an accident that was not your fault then you should speak with a personal injury lawyer Pyecombe about making a personal injury claim.
Different types of eye injuries
There are numerous injuries that could happen to your eyes:
- 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 into 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 and exposure to the sun or sun lamps can cause flash burn to the cornea.
- 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 whatever it is.
You may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim using a personal injury lawyer in Pyecombe if your eyes are injured in an accident that was not your fault and happened sometime within the last three years.
