Eye Injury Compensation Claim Information

Of the five human senses, sight is probably the most valuable we have as we depend so much on it to be able to function properly in everyday life. Any loss of vision can have a devastating and debilitating impact on anyone who has been unfortunate enough to suffer such incapacitating impairment. Not being able to observe the world around you or even see the faces of loved ones anymore is undoubtedly an understandably frightening prospect for anyone who has relatively good vision in one or both eyes.

How do Eye Injury claims happen?

Due to the complex and sensitive nature of the eyes, it is relatively easy for them to sustain damage and the impairment can range in severity from mild, temporary discomfort to permanent blindness. As a consequence, injuries to this most complex and sensitive part of the body can be particularly painful and cause severe anguish for the person affected. The impact loss of vision or the physical loss of an eye can have on the lives of those affected cannot be underestimated and, when it has been caused by someone else, may prompt victims to seek the services of experienced personal injury solicitors like Tylers. If you have lost sight partially or fully in one or both eyes as a result of an accident or someone else’s negligence, you may be able to make a loss of eye or eye injury compensation claim.

What is the Anatomy of the Eye?

The eye is the organ of sight that detects light and converts it into electro-chemical impulses in neurons. This extremely complex and specialised organ works by collecting light from the surrounding environment and regulating the amount of light entering the eye through the diaphragm of the iris, focusing it through the lens to form an image on the retina on the back inside surface of the eye. This image is then converted into electrical signals which are then sent to the brain through complex neural pathways.

What are the Different Types of Eye Injury and their Causes?

Most eye injuries are caused by trauma from foreign objects striking and penetrating the eye area at high speed with many of these particular injuries being caused by sporting activities. They can also be caused by scratches, electric shocks, cuts and irritation, heat and chemical burns and impact injuries to the head and face. Eye injuries resulting from the involvement of foreign bodies are commonly caused by road traffic accidents where fragments of glass from the shattered windows of the vehicles involved in the accident strike and penetrate the eye causing extreme pain and blurred vision. The impact of the airbag deploying against the face in a car crash can also cause lasting damage to the eye socket. Eye injuries resulting from impact happen when the eye strikes or is struck by a solid object travelling at high speed. Impact injuries can result from violent assaults and muggings where the victim receives a blow to the eye area from a weapon or the assailant’s fist and the subsequent fall to the ground. These injuries can also happen after falling to the ground as a result of general slips and trips and falls from height. Infiltration of the eye from harmful and dangerous chemicals in industrial accidents at work can also lead to potentially serious long-term ocular damage with short-term symptoms including redness, swelling and burning pain. Exposure to extremely bright light when welding or from looking at molten metal or from ultra-violet light from the Sun when working outdoors and not being provided with the correct protective eye wear can also cause serious eye damage and heighten the sensitivity of the eyes to light.
