Eye injuries and disorders can be some of the hardest to prove when it comes to Worker's Compensation. Adjusters and insurance agents know a variety of ways to try and discount your eye issues and claim that they are not related to your job in any way.
Single Injury or Long-Term Exposure
Eye issues can result from a single injury to the eye or to repeated/long-term exposure over a specific period of time. If you have sustained a work-related eye injury or your eye condition is a direct result of on-going exposure or strain in the workplace, you will need to file a Worker's Compensation claim to get the benefits you deserve.
You Need to Prove Your Claim
With insurance adjusters trying to disprove your claim, you will have to provide the documentation and proof you need to associate your eye problems with a work-related accident or long-term exposure to conditions that eventually damaged your eyes or eyesight. The burden of proof is on you.
