Eye Injury Compensation
Eye injuries can occur through foreign bodies entering the eye such as metal swarf, wooden splinters or splashes of chemical substances.
It is essential to be represented by a solicitor with experience of these injuries because they can throw up particular issues.
What happens if you have lost the sight on one eye and then you subsequently lose the sight in the other through disease, or another accident? Are you at risk of developing sympathetic ophthalmitis? This is a condition by which a remaining eye is placed at risk even though it was not injured in the original accident. Can a victim claim provisional damages, allowing he or she to return for further compensation if there is a deterioration in remaining vision? Speak to an expert.
