If you are in a road accident in Rochester-upon-Medway that was not your own fault and as a result you got an eye injury that needed medical attention, then you should use an injury lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline to make a claim for compensation.
People’s eyes can be injured quite easily as they are very delicate. Whether it’s an irritation you have or loss of your sight, you should seek out medical attention as eyes need specialist care.
There are lots of causes of eye injuries that an injury solicitor deals with, from a road accident in Rochester-upon-Medway to some you would not even think of, such as:
- Exposure to gases or chemicals
- Ultraviolet light
- A blow to the eye, perhaps with a fist or ball
- Foreign bodies in the eye
- Cuts to eyelids and eyeballs
- Laser eye surgery
If your eyes sustain an injury in a road accident in Rochester-upon-Medway that was not your fault, or in any other way at all, an injury solicitor may be able to help you make a personal injury claim for compensation.
The symptoms or signs of eye injuries
The symptoms or signs of an eye injury can vary greatly. It depends on what type of injury you have sustained. The more common things you may experience are:
- Wet eyes caused by an increase in the tears produced or dry eyes because of a reduction in tears
- Blurred or distorted vision
- Eye pain
- Sensitivity to light
- Eye muscles going into spasms causing squints
- The feeling you have something in your eye
- Redness of the eye
- Difficulty keeping the affected eyes open
Do not try and treat your eyes yourself if they have been damaged in a road accident in Rochester-upon-Medway
Most mild eye problems will usually clear themselves over quite a short period of time. If, however, the pain does not subside, or any of the symptoms get worse, you should go to the local hospital. Do not try and treat the eyes yourself – they are very delicate and you can do more harm than good.
