You may want to make a personal injury compensation claim if you have an accident that injures one or both of their eyes, using an injury lawyer. You can use a lawyer whether you are a current resident of Coldstream or anywhere else nationwide, as Accident Advice Helpline cover the whole of the UK.
These are the accidents that could cause an eye injuries which could result in a no win no fee* Coldstream claim
There are many ways eye injuries can happen, just some examples are:
- Cuts to eyelids and eyeballs from shards of glass
- Exposure to gasses or chemicals
- Laser eye surgery going wrong
- A blow to the eye, perhaps with a fist or ball
- 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
- Ultraviolet light, exposure to the sun or sun lamps can cause flash burn to the cornea
Eye injuries can happen in any type of accident, and the severity can vary greatly from a minor irritation to your sight being affected, maybe even blindness.
If you were in an accident that resulted in you having an eye injury and it wasn’t your fault, the law of the land is that the guilty party should compensate you, and you may want to use an injury lawyer to help you with this.
The treatment for eye injuries
Eyes are very delicate and need specialist care if they have been damaged. You should not try and treat the eye or remove a foreign body from your eye yourself – you could do more harm than good.
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.
