Prior to your injury, you knew people who had suffered serious eye injuries. You thought about how difficult blindness, or partial blindness, might be and you sympathized with those who no longer had vision. Yet, you couldn't really understand what their lives were like until you suffered your own cement eye injury on a New York City construction site.
We could go into the many different reasons why cement workers suffer eye injuries, but it is too late to prevent your personal cement eye injury. Accordingly, we'll focus on your future instead. Your goal is likely to maximize your eyesight and minimize your pain. Here's what you need to do after your eye injury:
- Get immediate medical attention.
- Follow your doctor's orders.
- Begin considering what your future will be like and what you can do given any lasting effects of your injury.
It is also important to get help from your friends, doctors and lawyers and to put forth the necessary effort to protect your recovery.
Focus on Your Goals
You want to get back to work and get back to living your life. This is going to take hard work. It is going to take determination. You can do it and an experienced construction eye injury lawyer can help you by negotiating with the workers' compensation insurer and/or pursuing a personal injury lawsuit, if appropriate.
