Claiming compensation for eye injuries at work

Eye injuries can happen anywhere and the workplace is certainly one of the more common places where this could occur. Whether it’s a result of improper training or a lack of safety equipment, you could be left in need of serious medical attention and be forced to miss time off work to recover, meaning that you lose out on an income. If you have been in an accident that has damaged your eyes, you could be eligible to make an eye injury claim and receive compensation.

It is your employers’ responsibility to ensure that the health and safety levels are of the highest standard for their workers and that means removing any risks that could lead to eye injuries. One of the best ways they could do this is to provide adequate safety equipment such as protective goggles in order to prevent an injury. If you believe this isn’t the case and you have been injured as a result, then making a claim for negligence could be your best option.
