Many accidents could potentially result in severe eye injury. Some of the most common eye injuries include the following:
- Car accidents
- Fire burns
- Defective products
- Industrial workplace accidents
- Electrocution injuries
- Violent acts
- Chemical exposure
- Medication errors
Depending on the accident that caused your eye injury, the severity may range from minor to blindness. Some of the most common symptoms of eye injuries include dizziness, double vision, reduced ability to see in the dark, loss of depth perception, light sensitivity, blurred vision, and partial sight loss. In severe cases, an eye injury could cost a person their eyesight.
Eye injuries may sometimes heal with time, and vision can be partially restored. In other cases, an eye injury victim may have to adjust to a new way of life due to their injury. For those who experience total blindness, they will potentially need ongoing care and rehabilitation. They may lose their ability to return to work and provide for themselves and their families.
If an accident caused a serious eye injury due to another party’s negligent actions, you could pursue a personal injury claim against them. For example, if a car accident caused by a reckless driver led to injuries, the driver could be held liable. If you were injured by a defective product, you could pursue monetary damages against the manufacturer of that product. If you were injured in a workplace accident, you could hold your employer liable. Employers have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for their employees.
If your claim is successful, you will recover compensation for your injuries. Vision loss has a lasting impact on a victim’s life; the recoverable damages may be substantial and include:
- Medical bills, including rehabilitation and assistive equipment
- Lost wages and reduced earning capacity
- Reduced quality of life
- Long-term disability
- Home modifications or in-home care
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Scarring or permanent disfigurement
- Loss of consortium
