Eye Injury Claims

 It doesn’t matter whether your eye injury was due to injuries suffered in a road accident, through the negligence of a medical practitioner or from a work accident, we’re here for you.

Eye injuries can vary drastically from a very minor, like poking your eye with your finger, to catastrophic, like losing your eye or vision.  These kinds of injuries can happen anywhere from work, home, public accidents or even sporting events.

Some common eye injuries, such as deep puncture wounds, would need medical attention immediately. It is a possibility you may need surgery to prevent eye damage or permanent vision loss.

Minor surface scratched may need simple monitoring after a visit to the GP, Optometrist or Ophthalmologist to make sure complications such as infections occur.

We prepare, and process claims for sight and eye injury compensation on a No Win No Fuss basis.

When you call we can provide personal legal advice without a fee. The only criteria are that if you think your injuries were inflicted due to someone else’s responsibility or negligence.

Causes

These kinds of injuries can happen anywhere at any time. It is common for our specialists to deal with eye injuries from different kinds of accidents or negligence.

Car and motor vehicle accidents cause a high number of individuals involved to suffer eye injuries. If the motor vehicle mishap was not your fault, then we can help organise a lawyer who specialises in vehicle mishaps to assist you in proceeding with your injury compensation claims.

Or you may have been injured during a laser eye surgery in a cosmetic procedure. If the practitioner was negligent we can assist in coordinating an injury compensation lawyer who specialises in medical negligence.

Our expert lawyers locally established in Brisbane and throughout Queensland can provide you with efficient and free of charge personalised legal advice.

When to seek medical advice

Generally, if there are complications with your eye it is always recommended to seek medical attention. Though some eye injuries can receive self-care without any complications. However, if any of these symptoms are evident, you need to seek emergency services or medical attention:

  • Persistent and severe eye pain
  • Foreign bodies that can’t be washed out
  • Decreased or double vision
  • Visibly can see flashing lights, spots or halos
  • Blood visible in the eye
  • Pupil shape compromised
  • Pain when exposed to light
  • Deep Cuts
  • Eye left eye socket

You should always see medical attention if you think it requires emergency services or medical attention.

Eye Injuries at Work

Remember that common sense safety precautions such as wearing safety goggles or other PPE may be the best approach to prevent eye injuries altogether.

If you have been a responsible worker and worn all your correct PPE and you receive an eye injury through no fault of your own, you may be eligible to claim. Anyone is entitled to claim worker’s compensation if they can prove that the accident was another party’s responsibility.

It’s against the law for your employer to fire you or treat you differently for claiming compensation for an injury inflicted at work. Legally businesses are required to have an insurance policy that covers them in case of accidents.

Claiming Process

We recommend giving our expert team a call to provide some details about your eye injury. We ask for:

  • Name
  • Phone Number
  • Address
  • Date of Accident
  • What happened during the incident
  • Medical details
  • Current medical state

The more information we can collect will assist in providing a higher quality level of customer service and claims evaluation.

Once we collect all the required information we forward these details to a lawyer who specialises in the field that you need assistance in. We like to find local specialists within your state to make the process easier for you. A personal injury lawyer will assess your claim on a No Win No Fee basis. This specialist will proceed to call you and advise you of your options and rights.
