    Road accident in Sandwell


    Everybody’s eyes are easily injured because they are very delicate.  If you have sustained an eye injury in a road accident in Sandwell, and that accident was the fault of someone else, then you should talk to Accident Advice Helpline, so they can help you to make a personal injury claim.

    Eye injuries vary greatly from an irritation to loss of sight, and there can be many ways this can happen, for example:

    • Cuts to eyelids and eyeballs
    • Exposure to gasses or chemicals
    • A blow to the eye, perhaps with a fist or ball
    • Foreign bodies in the eye
    • Ultraviolet light, usually from sunlamps

    In this list are just a few examples of how an eye can be damaged.  A road accident in Sandwell, or any other accident that was not your fault, could cause some of these injuries and could mean you are entitled to claim compensation from the guilty party.

    How you will know your eyes are damaged after a road accident in Sandwell

    The symptoms of any eye injury will vary depending on the severity of the injury but can include:

    • Wet or dry eyes changed by the amount of tears produced
    • Bloodshot eyes
    • Eye muscles going into spasms causing squints
    • The feeling you have something in your eye
    • Blurred or distorted vision
    • Difficulty keeping the affected eyes open
    • Eye Pain
    • They become light sensitive

    How to treat injured eyes

    You should never try to treat your eye yourself as you could do more harm than good. Eyes need the care of a specialist, no matter how minor the injury may seem.  You should get medical advice and make sure you follow what they tell you.  Some damage to our eyes can be permanent, and if you do not do as you are told, you could cause irreparable damage to an already injured eye.
