Every day, we rely on our eyesight to navigate through the world. What would happen if suddenly your vision was diminished through no fault of your own?
A traumatic eye injury can result from a multitude of situations. Vision impairment can result from an accident caused by another individual, a negligent doctor, toxic chemicals, substandard LASIK surgery, or even come from a defective product such as an airbag. And some of the most challenging cases arise when children are involved.
Regardless of the patient’s age, the result of an eye injury case can be life changing. It may involve loss of peripheral vision, ongoing vertigo, blindness, loss of an eye or double vision. It can lead to blurred vision, lack of depth perception, cause intense headaches, impact mental health and affect daily life.
In a legal case that involves vision loss, the amount that the individual is often awarded will depend on a few criteria including:
if one eye or both eyes were affected
whether the loss of vision was total or partial
how much money they earned at the time of the event
whether they have transferable skills for other work
their age at the time of the injury
