Claiming Compensation for Loss of Sight

If you lose your sight at work it can be a devastating injury. Never being able to see again can be one of the most traumatising events in a person’s life and can be incredibly debilitating. An injury of this type is extremely severe and can often require long stints in hospital accompanied by a large rehabilitation process.

The effects of losing sight can also have a large effect on your ability to return to work, or even your ability to be able to work again. If you find yourself in this situation the financial hardship that you and your family may now face combined with the emotional trauma create a very difficult situation. If you have lost your sight at work through no fault of your own, you may be able to claim compensation to cover medical costs as well as a loss of income for your inability to work.

Causes of Loss of Sight:

Loss of sight can be caused by a number of reasons but some of the most common workplace accidents include:

  • Chemical accidents – Spilling chemicals into the eye which can cause severe burns and damage to the retina
  • Lights – Bright lights and UV rays can cause damage to the retinas often resulting in blindness if there is too much exposure
  • Particles – Stones and other particles flying into the eye, cutting the eye and often destroying the retina, this can often happen in factories on the production line if the correct eye protection is not worn.
  • Dust – Once again if correct eyewear isn’t worn dust particles can enter the eye, usually from machinery, and cause temporary or permanent loss of sight.

What you can do:

If you have suffered from a loss of sight due to no fault of your own then you may be eligible to claim compensation for your associated medical costs as well as the cost of the rehabilitation process. If your injury prevents you from continuing to work you may also be able to claim for loss of income and permanent disability in the future.
