Various Eye Injuries

Injuries to the eyes often result in partial or total loss of vision and can be very traumatic. Unfortunately, eye injury and vision loss cases are becoming increasingly more common. Medical malpractice, defective products, vehicular accidents and jobsite injuries are all possible causes of eye injuries, and often the injury is directly related to the negligence or carelessness of others.

There are many instances where an individual sustains a serious eye injury through no fault of their own. Some causes include faulty airbags, surgical errors during LASIK or other types of surgery, automobile accidents, and contact with certain contact lens solutions. Jobsite eye injuries may be sustained due to hazardous work conditions or because safety regulations were ignored.

Long-Term Consequences

Because we need to see properly to accomplish most tasks, any injury that causes impairment and reduction of vision is extremely serious. That is why it is so important to understand the possible long-term ramifications of this type of injury. Depending on how extensive the injury, it may be impossible for the individual to return to their job, drive, read a newspaper, use the computer, or perform simple tasks without assistance. This will have an impact on every aspect of their life, especially on their financial future.

If you or someone you love has suffered this type of injury, it is important for you to understand your rights. Without proper legal representation, you may be convinced to settle for an amount far less than you will need to support yourself and your family going forward.
