Did You Or One Of Your Friends Or Loved Ones Sustain An Eye Injury In A Florida Car Accident?

EyeInj

A person’s sight is invaluable. Generally, most daily activities depend on sight. Unfortunately, vision problems are quite common. According to the CDC, the main causes of low vision and blindness in America are age-related eye diseases like age-related;

  • cataract
  • macular degeneration
  • diabetic retinopathy and
  • glaucoma

Auto accidents, too, can result in eye injuries. But, often, when people think about auto accidents, they think of injuries like broken bones. The truth is that eye injuries in car accidents are pretty common. Car accidents often cause serious trauma injuries that end up leading to blindness or low vision. According to research, motor vehicle accidents present unique eye injury risk factors like

  • Potential broken glass exposure
  • Rapid changes in velocity
  • Airbag deployment
  • Foreign body exposure, and
  • Lack of occupant restraint use

Additionally, eye injuries in car accidents can occur due to other things like;

  • Blunt force trauma
  • Toxic exposure
  • Traumatic brain injuries

Common Types of Vision Problems That Can Occur After a Car Accident

It is vital that you remember that no two car accidents are ever the same. Nevertheless, there are certain common vision problems that can occur after a motor vehicle accident. Unfortunately, many eye injuries that occur after car collisions result in long-term or permanent trauma that forces accident victims to stop living their daily lives as they used to before their accident. For example, a car accident victim that suffers an eye injury may end up losing their job. An eye injury victim might also end up having to abandon their hobbies and adopting a “new normal.”

According to experts, even a mild traumatic brain injury can cause vision problems. Research suggests that approximately 20 to 40 percent of individuals with traumatic brain injury experience vision problems. Some of the vision problems people with traumatic brain injury can experience include blurred vision and difficulty seeing.

Other common vision problems that people experience after a car accident include;

  • Double vision
  • Loss of an eye
  • Complete blindness
  • Loss of peripheral vision
  • Loss of visual acuity

If you or one of your friends or family members suffered a severe eye injury in a Florida motor vehicle accident, it is vital that you seek medical help and legal guidance. If another party’s negligent act is responsible for your severe eye injury, you might be eligible for compensation. An attorney can help you obtain compensation for damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
