Eye injuries on the job or due to car accidents or other mishaps can be costly and leave sufferers with lasting damage up to and including acquired blindness. Double vision, blurry vision or hypersensitivity to light can amount to a serious disability. Loss of sight is likely to bring about many expenses over a lifetime. A newly blind person often has to undergo occupational therapy and retraining in many areas of life as well as pay for services previously self-provided.
If one or both of your eyes have suffered injuries such as the following, contact a personal injury attorney promptly. The sooner your legal advocate is involved in your case, the more thoroughly you can represented in an injury claim or lawsuit.
- A scratched cornea
- A scratched pupil
- Botched Lasik surgery
