Loss Of Sight Claims
In the human body, the eyes are one of the most easily damaged parts. Any kind of injury to the eye can have a life altering effect on the victim. Temporary damage to the eye can cause a great deal of inconvenience, time off work and financial losses. But, if a person has sustained a major eye injury which has resulted in loss of eye sight, then the impact can be devastating not only for the victim, but for the family members as well.
Loss of eye sight could mean that you are unable to work or drive again. It could mean that you will never be able to see your kids grow up. Loss of sight can occur in many different types of accidents. If you have suffered an eye injury which has resulted in loss of eye sight, you may be able to make loss of sight claims.
Loss of Sight Causes
Accidents which can result in loss of sight include:
- Criminal attacks and assaults
- Electric shocks
- Sharp objects
- Head trauma
- Grit and other particles
- Bright lights
- Accidents at work
- Road accidents
Serious eye injuries can occur when foreign objects penetrate the eye. There are many workplaces where workers are at a risk of sustaining eye injuries. Electrical workers, welders, military personnel, laboratory workers, factory workers and those who work with or around chemicals can sustain eye injuries.
It is the duty of every employer to eradicate the risk of such accidents by providing adequate personal protective equipment to the workers. They must do all that is reasonably practicable to minimise the risk of accidents which can cause eye injuries. All employers must carry out risk assessments to ensure that workers are adequately protected. Failure of the employer to ensure the safety of workers can give rise to accidents and work accident claims.
