Compensation for Catastrophic Eye Injuries
Very few injuries are as terrifying as those that affect our eyesight. Losing an eye, or having your eyesight permanently impaired, will have a devastating, lifelong impact. The costs of such an injury, whether in terms of medical expenses, rehabilitation, or the affect it will have on your ability to earn a living, can be astronomical.
That’s why victims of eye injuries need to act quickly to secure proper representation and ensure that their future will be protected. The Walnut Creek personal injury lawyers at Balamuth Law understand the adverse effects that an eye injury can have, and we will work with victims to help them move on with their lives in a meaningful way.
Leading Causes of Eye Injuries
The eye is a very delicate sensory organ, and it is very vulnerable to injury. One of the leading causes of injury to the eye, is faulty or defective LASIK surgery. A patient goes in for this surgery thinking that the corrective procedure will restore their eyesight, only to have their eyesight damaged. This can happen because of poor screening procedures by the eye center, defective medical equipment, or improper surgical techniques.
Another leading cause of eye injuries is car accidents. Many victims find that their eyes are damaged by the faulty deployment of the airbag.
Defective products can lead to eye injuries or impaired eyesight for unsuspecting consumers. This is especially the case with products such as contact lenses or contact lens solution. In one infamous case, victims found that their contact lens solution actually contained hydrogen peroxide, and a number of severe injuries were the result.
Many people work in industries that pose significant risks to their eyes. Metal workshops, factories, laboratories, and construction sites all have unique eye-injury hazards.
