There are many different ways in which to suffer an injury to the eye. These include getting hit by something or someone in the eye, or getting small objects stuck in the eye. Damage can also be done by exposure to bright light or harmful chemicals.
The symptoms of an eye injury also vary dramatically, from minor discomfort to partial or complete loss of vision.
Eye injuries at work
Injuries to the eye can happen in any type of accident, but commonly they happen in accidents at work. It is the legal duty of your employer to protect your health and safety. If they fail in this duty and you become injured as a result, then it is your right to make an eye injury claim.
Amongst other responsibilities, employers have a duty to supply safety goggles whenever a procedure which could be dangerous is being performed. They should also provide training to ensure that tasks are carried out correctly and safely.
Although some people are reluctant to pursue a claim against a former or current employer, it should be remembered that they are legally prohibited from disciplining staff members for making a claim. By making a claim you may prevent similar accidents from happening in the future.
