Loss of Sight From Head Trauma: Compensation For Loss of Vision at Work
Eye injuries or visual impairment between 2004-2008, 44% of the injuries happened at home, 15% were recreational or sports related, 16% happened at work, 11% happened due to a motor vehicle accident
Eyesight is a gift we all take for granted. We don’t often think about how magnificent our eyes are, how they help us through our day and how lost we would be without them. When you are suddenly faced with the challenge of finishing your life with such a severe limitation, never again able to look upon the faces of your loved ones, drive, walk unassisted, or participate in the activities you once enjoyed, this is tragic indeed, especially when it is due to the negligence of a person or corporation. You need a lawyer who can help you get the compensation you deserve for such a difficulty in your life.
Loss of eyesight has a ripple effect
At first the loss of most or all of your sight is frustrating when you can’t do simple tasks on your own. Soon however, you start realizing that you are quite disabled. Most likely, you can no longer hold down your old job and driving is impossible. Not only are doctor’s visits quite expensive but now the loss of income begins to hit hard. You do not have to face this trial alone; you can fight back and seek compensation from the responsible party.
Causes of eye injury and blindness
According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, of those who suffered eye injuries or visual impairment between 2004-2008, 44% of the injuries happened at home, 15% were recreational or sports related, 16% happened at work, 11% happened due to a motor vehicle accident, and 14% happened on farms, at school or other unspecified locations.
