Many accident victims suffer life-altering injuries that can require extensive treatment or even leave a person permanently disabled and unable to ever return to life as usual. One type of injury that can be particularly devastating and difficult to deal with is an injury affecting one or both eyes. Many eye injury victims suffer partial or total vision loss that may be either temporary or permanent. Even temporary vision loss can have a severe effect on a person’s life, requiring expensive medical care and keeping a person from working or performing everyday life activities. If you received an eye injury in an accident that was someone else’s fault, you may be entitled to receive significant compensation for your losses.
Eye injuries commonly occur in several different types of preventable accidents, including the following:
Such accidents can cause corneal abrasions or lacerations, ruptured globes, damage to the surface of the eye, hemorrhaging, or damage to the optic nerve. Such injuries often may require emergency medical care, visits to an ophthalmologist with experience in eye trauma, surgery, therapy, and more. Sometimes, eye injury victims require ongoing monitoring of their eyes since traumatic injuries can lead to scarring, glaucoma, or other complications down the road.
Many eye injury victims face piles of medical bills from lost income from time missed from work. Additionally, most eye injuries are extremely painful and make life very difficult if their vision has been affected. If you bring a legal claim, you may receive compensation for your financial losses, as well as non-financial losses such as pain and suffering.
