Your vision is an essential sense that you rely on every day for balance, depth perception, and to safely get around. Your eyes are one of the most sensitive parts of your body and are vulnerable to minor devastating, catastrophic injury from even a small amount of damage.

Medical Treatment for Eye Injuries
Eye injuries that result in the loss of vision require extensive medical treatment. If you have sustained an eye or vision-related injury, you need to immediately seek medical treatment to avoid potential life-changing complications and lingering symptoms. There are two primary treatments for eye-related injuries: surgery and rehabilitation.
Surgery is usually an option when the damage to the eye can be repaired. Surgery is often necessary when an object or debris is lodged in the eye or the retina is detached due to trauma.
Although rehabilitation might not result in fully restored vision, it can help a person recover from their injury as much as possible. Rehabilitation for vision loss and eye injuries can include wearing an eye patch temporarily while it heals, eye-strengthening exercises, and taking medication.
We Can Help You Seek Compensation for Loss of Vision
Obtaining a full settlement can be complicated and time-consuming, which is why you should consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer to discuss your options and build a strong legal strategy. Insurance companies will aggressively fight personal injury claims for eye injuries to reduce their own financial liability and reduce the total amount of compensation that a victim can recover.
A successful eye injury or vision loss case can result in compensation for the following damages:
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
- Emotional Distress
- Surgical Operations
- Physical Therapy
- Long-Term Disability
- Emergency Room Bills
- Required Medical Equipment
