Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for serious accidents to result in the loss of one or both eyes. In similarly severe instances, an accident can lead to damage in one or both eyes, resulting in permanent injury or disfigurement. Individuals may even suffer complete blindness or partial loss of vision as a result of a serious accident. These injuries can result from all types of accidents—car accidents, construction accidents, workplace accidents, etc. But these injuries can also result from injuries directly to the surface of the eye, such as sports injuries/impact/collision during participation, or chemical contact.
The U.S. National Library of Medicine defines blindness as a lack of vision and vision loss as poor vision which glasses and/or contacts are unable to correct. If you have been a victim of blindness or loss of sight injury, you may be entitled to compensation from the entity who is responsible for the injury. A vision injury will not only damage sight, but it also causes emotional distress, financial damages, and excessive medical expenses, in addition to lost wages for those who suffered the injury.
