If you suffer an eye injury, the first thing you should do is get medical attention. Even if you think your injury is fairly minor, it’s important to have your eyes checked by a doctor as soon as possible, just in case.
You should also make sure that the accident is reported as soon as possible to whoever you think is responsible, for example, your employer or the owner of the premises where the accident occurred.
If you suffered an eye injury in an accident at work, your employer should have an accident book, so you can record the details of what happened to you, and if at all possible, you should gather the names and contact information of anyone who witnessed the accident.
Taking these steps can be vitally important if you decide to claim compensation for eye injury, as your Personal Injury Solicitor will be able to use this as evidence to make sure you’re compensated fairly.
You could also consider keeping a diary after you’ve been injured, so there’s a record of how it develops over time, and retain any receipts for medication, treatment and aids such as glasses, so you can be properly reimbursed for these expenses.
