Eye Injury At Work Claims
Eye injuries are commonplace in the working environment, thankfully most we are asked to help with are short lived and result in a full recovery. Having said that, even what could be deemed as minor eye injuries tend to be extremely painful and cause considerable distress – many of us deem sight the most important of the senses so any form of eye injury can immediately make us fear the worst.
At the other end of the spectrum serious injuries can and often do have life-changing consequences.
Whether you deem your eye injury serious or minor one thing remains the same, you need a specialist solicitor to help you get the compensation you deserve. You need Russell Worth solicitors.
Common eye injuries we are asked to help with include: –
Foreign objects in the eye. Perhaps the most common form of eye injury and at the same time perhaps the most avoidable if simple health and safety measures are followed and adequate PPE is provided and used.
Chemical burns. While chemical burns have been reported to us for many years what we are seeing with the passage of time is fewer injuries as health and safety improves but sadly more serious injuries as chemical potency increases.
Scratched Cornea. Our corneas are very delicate and do scratch all too easily, whether it be from rubbing your eyes if something gets into them or from something poking you in the eye.
Flash burns. Often referred to as ‘welders flash’ or ‘arc eye’ due to its high incidence in the welding profession. It is caused by too much exposure to ultraviolet light, generally the eye will heal itself within one to three days but nothing should be left to chance and if you do suspect that you may have suffered a flash burn then you should see your GP as soon as possible.
