Did You Suffer Vision Loss After an Accident?
A loss of vision will change everything about your life. Even a partial loss of eyesight can rob you of your ability to drive a vehicle or do activities that you enjoy. If you suffered an eye injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, contact our Boston personal injury lawyers at DiBella Law Offices, P.C., by calling (617) 870-0907. There may be compensation available for you, and we’ll go to work to get it.
Types of Eye Injuries
The American Academy of Ophthalmology ranked the most common injuries involving the eyes. Foreign objects in the eye are the number one cause of eye injuries. This is followed by open wounds or contusions, which account for about 25% of all eye injuries.
It is estimated that there are over two million eye injuries each year in the United States. Some of the most common causes of these injuries include:
- Airborne debris
- Vehicle accidents
- Machine defects or failures
- Chemical spills
- Construction accidents
- Airbag deployment
- Nursing home neglect
Some eye injuries cannot be avoided, but many are caused by preventable accidents. If you sustained an eye injury as the result of a car crash, a slip-and-fall on someone else’s property, a workplace accident, or due to someone else acting irresponsibly, you should contact a Boston eye injury attorney to discuss the merits of your case.
