Losing your sight can happen as the result of a wide variety of accidents. The loss can be temporary or permanent, depending on the damage done. Again, depending on the exact circumstances, sight can be lost in both eyes or just one. Either way, the injury is traumatic and can take significant time to adjust.
Below we highlight some of the incidents which can result in loss of sight.
Being the victim of a criminal assault can result in loss of sight due to impact trauma to the eye. We can help you claim maximum compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) which compensates innocent victims of crime.
Hit by object
Objects flying into the eye at speed are a common cause of loss of sight claims. This could be a piece of glass in a road traffic accident for example, or a piece of metal flying off machinery at work.
Chemical injuries and burns
Certain chemicals can cause damage serious enough to affect sight if they come into contact with the eye. Safe procedures should be provided if handling these chemicals at work.
Traumatic head injuries can cause sight problems if certain parts of the eyes or brain are damaged. Falls and car accidents are common causes of head injuries.
Medical negligence/laser eye surgery errors.
Although extremely rare, errors and negligence when performing medical procedures on or around the eye can unfortunately cause loss of sight to the patient.
