Eye injuries often happen in the work place as a result of the negligence of your employer.
Employers have a responsibility to provide appropriate safety equipment to their staff members, including eye protection if they are working in an environment that proposes a risk for eye injury.
Eye injuries usually occur as a result of:
- Burns from a fire
- Electric shock
- Chemical exposure
- Grit/other particles
- Head trauma
As long as your eye injury was caused by the negligence of another party, such as your employer, you will be entitled to make a compensation claim.
