What causes industrial sight loss?
There are many ways in which your sight can be affected at work if you are not provided with the correct protective equipment.
Jobs involving frequent exposure to bright lights can pose a risk of sight loss. Welding is the most commonly cited example of this, and any worker undertaking this or similar tasks should be wearing a protective mask.
Safety goggles should also be essential for a range of tasks, as these can prevent chemicals, dust or sharp objects from getting near your eyes.
Sight loss can even be caused by some head injuries, so safety helmets should be made available wherever necessary to ensure you are not injured.
An employer must provide this protective equipment. Moreover, it must be fit for purpose and functioning correctly, whilst there must also be enough available for every worker involved in a task. Loss of sight compensation claims can arise if any of these requirements is not met.
Making a claim
If you would like Sheldon Davidson Solicitors to help you claim compensation for your sight loss, we will assess your case thoroughly to assess how likely it is to succeed. We will then act on your behalf to secure the compensation you deserve from your employer’s insurance company.
Your sight does not have to be permanently damaged for a claim to be successful; we can assist those who have suffered from temporary loss of sight after an incident in the workplace.
We can also help with many other industrial diseases. For example, if you repeat the same action over a sustained period you may develop repetitive strain injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
We are passionate about helping clients to seek appropriate justice and recompense, and our track record speaks for itself.
