We have won compensation for clients who suffered all types of eye injuries, including:
- Blow out fractures
- Eye socket injuries
- Foreign bodies in the eyes
- Light sensitivity
- Abraded corneas
- Impaired or blurred vision
- Restricted field of vision
- Penetrating injuries from hooks, metal fragments, and other sharp objects
- Double vision
The eyes are easily damaged from trauma. Commercial fishing vessels, tug boats, and other boats offer plenty of opportunity for eye injuries. Gaffs, fish hooks, knives, fish spines, paint chips, and metal fragments can all cause penetrating eye injuries. Hazardous chemicals also cause vision loss. Seamen can suffer eye injuries when they are hit by loose objects or poked in the eye by equipment carried by fellow crewmen.Get The Award You Need
