What Causes Eye Injuries?

An eye injury can alter your everyday life, and the medical expenses to repair or treat eye injuries can be very expensive. Depending on the severity and nature of your eye injury, you may suffer from symptoms that last for several weeks or months.

In severe cases, symptoms may be long-term or permanent, affecting you for the rest of your life. Because of how complicated these injuries can get, it’s best to consult a reliable vision loss lawyer to understand if you are eligible to seek compensation.

Some common causes of eye injuries are:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Explosions
  • Violence
  • Burns
  • Chemical exposure
  • Defective products
  • Workplace accidents

If any of the above factors led to your vision loss, contact Nix Patterson to find out how our eye injury lawyers can help.

What Are the Most Common Eye Injuries?

Eye injuries typically require emergency medical care. If you experience an eye injury, immediately call an ophthalmologist or optometrist for treatment advice. If you do not have access to an eye doctor, go to the closest emergency room.  And keep in mind that scratches may make your eye susceptible to infection

Some of the common eye injuries that our attorneys can handle include:

  • Burns. Chemicals like shampoo, soap, fumes, and makeup may cause eye injuries. Such chemicals may attack eye tissue and cause extensive damage or even permanent vision loss.
  • Physical trauma. Getting struck in the eye may cause the area to swell and it might become painful. This swelling around the eye may also interfere with vision.
  • Corneal abrasion. This eye injury occurs when a foreign object scratches the eye. It may cause eye-watering, pain, and sensitivity to light.
  • Eye bleeding. Involves painless blood leakage that may last for several weeks. Trauma to the eye and straining are the main causes of bleeding in the eye.
  • Retinal detachment. Caused by trauma to the eye or age-related issues. This may lead to permanent vision loss.
  • Foreign objects in the eye. Objects like glass, dirt, or debris may penetrate the eye and cause eye pain or vision problems.
  • Orbital fractures. Trauma to the eye socket may cause a fracture once bones shatter.

If you experience any of the above eye injuries, seek emergency medical care immediately and contact a reputable personal injury law firm like Nix Patterson to understand your legal options. Our legal team will look into the facts of your case and determine whether another person’s actions are to blame for your injury. This case consultation is free. 

What Are My Legal Rights After an Eye Injury?

If you’ve suffered an eye injury and you believe someone else is liable, you have the right to pursue financial compensation. The facts surrounding your case will play a critical role in your claim. Factors like where the injury occurred and what led to your injury will determine whether you have a good case.

For example, if the injury happened in the workplace, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. If your eye injury was caused by a defective product, you may file a product liability or personal injury claim. There are many other types of cases too. 

To understand your rights, it’s best to review your case with our experienced eye injury lawyers. Our legal team is ready to analyze your case and advise you on the best way forward.

What Compensation May I Get After an Eye Injury?

Many eye injury victims are eligible for compensation that covers medical-related expenses, pain and suffering, and sometimes emotional distress. Compensation may also cover lost wages for missed work due to the injury. Get in touch with a vision loss lawyer to find out how much your case may be worth. If you can’t afford to pay for the expenses related to your eye injury, there may be some options our lawyers can explain.

Here are some of the damages you may be entitled to after an eye injury:

  • Medical treatment expenses
