    Causes Of Eye Injuries

    Work-related eye injuries occur for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes of eye injuries at work include:

    • Chemical burns
    • Foreign object in the eye
    • Explosions
    • Fires
    • Physical assault

    Eye injuries are serious. Make sure you take your injury seriously right from the start. Make sure you speak with a lawyer about what to do after your eye injury.

    We’re Focused On Your Needs

    Employers and insurance companies often downplay the seriousness of work injuries. They also often put pressure on injured workers to return to work as soon as possible – even when injured employees need more time to recover.

    That’s not right. If you sustained an eye injury at work, you should receive the medical care you need and time to recover that you deserve. And if you cannot return to work or need retraining to do a different job, you should receive such support as well.

    As your legal advocate, we can be your voice for justice. We deal directly with your employer and insurance companies on your behalf. We can demand a second medical opinion if you’re being pressured to return to work too soon. We’re here for you when you need us most. Contact us and schedule your free case consultation today.
