Our expert lawyers can help with all types of eye injury compensation on a no win no fuss basis.
According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, 73 in 100,000 Australians sustain eye injuries so severe they require hospitalisation. The most common cause of eye injury is enmeshment of foreign objects due to a fall, assault, or transportation accident.
Personal injury lawyers have secured compensation for individuals injured in a wide range of circumstances, including (but not limited to):
Your personal injury lawyer will arrange an independent medical assessment to establish the nature, severity and likely future impact of your injury. The medical report produced from this assessment will be a key piece of evidence in support of your compensation claim.
The most common cause of eye injury claims we deal with, result from accidents in the workplace. Inadequate PPE is one of the main contributors and
Did your employer breach their duty of care towards you? Such as not providing you with protective goggles, your employer could be held liable.
Another common cause of eye injury is from faulty or defective products. If you have suffered an eye injury due to a defective product our specialist liability claims lawyers might be able to recover damages for you in the form of compensation.
Your lawyer will assist you in gathering evidence to determine who is legally responsible for your injury. In addition to the medical report, this evidence may include witness statements or surveillance footage of the accident.
The party responsible for the accident will usually be held liable to pay compensation. In the case of vehicle or road accident, the driver who caused the accident will be the party whom we shall seek compensation from, though the actual claim will be made against their insurance company.
If the accident was the result of a trip or slip claim on someone else’s property, such as a supermarket accident, the owner or operator of the premises could be held responsible for your injury due to the accident.
If you sustained an eye injury at work, your employer may be liable if your eye injury accident occurred in your workplace, under various state and federal Occupational Health & Safety statutes.
If your employer breaches the duty of care they owe to all their employees, such as by failing to provide protective goggles around dangerous areas such as machinery or chemical storage, your employer may be held liable.
