Construction Workers

Eye Injuries From Flying Debris

Construction workers are uniquely susceptible to eye injuries because of their working conditions and tasks. Many construction projects produce flying debris like wood, plastic, metal slivers, paint chips, concrete particles and nails. This flying debris can seriously injure their eyes or even cause permanent loss of sight. Eye injuries can have serious complications, and the debris can cause dangerous infections.

It is difficult to think of anything more physically painful than an eye injury. Eye injuries can also be painful financially as they require a great deal of medical treatment.

Prevention

The simplest and easiest way to prevent eye injuries from debris is to always wear protective goggles. Unfortunately, however, these accidents are often the result of someone else's negligence.

What to do if injured:

If you have suffered an eye injury because of flying debris, the first thing you should do is seek immediate medical treatment. It is also important to speak with a lawyer who knows the specifics of construction site injury law and can investigate every aspect of your case, including whether there are personal injury or workers' compensation claims. Talking with a lawyer can help to give you peace of mind and to understand your rights and options.

Review: Altman and Altman LLP

    I was coming home from work traveling on 95 south at a complete stop when a Jeep Cherokee traveling 65 MPH hit me from behind. Injuries suffered were a Torn Rotator Cuff, Torn MCL, Blood Clot with Neck and Back damage. I had no idea how complex the process was. Dealing with the Insurance companies, Surgeries, PT, legal issues, doctors and bills. It was overwhelming and time consuming. David Altman stepped took care of everything every step of the way in an incredibly professional caring way. He was quick to respond to any questions or concerns including weekends. In 2 years there wasn't one time where a phone call wasn't returned with in 30 minutes. David kept me positive during the most negative times. 2 years later I'm pretty close to being back where I was and David is the reason why. I was able to just focus on getting better and he took care of everything else. He was very aggressive and professional with the insurance companies in this settlement of this case. He kept me up to date on a regular basis through the whole process. I can't thank David and his staff enough and strongly recommend them to anyone.

    I am not very good at words. I was involved in a horrible accident. David and his team (Thank You Asia & Rick) are wonderful, talented and compassionate. If it were not for their help, I don’t believe the outcome would be as good as it is. I am glad my case is settled, Altman & Altman are my go to team from now on. Thank you so very much.
