Eye Injuries

Colorado Personal Injury Lawyer

Eye injuries have the potential to alter nearly every aspect of a person’s life. Injuries to the eye can affect a person’s ability to perform their job, enjoy their hobbies and even perform basic daily care. Yet every year over 1 million eye injuries occur in the United States and  if not treated quickly—can lead to a lifetime of disabilities, permanent vision loss and even blindness.

Causes of Eye Injuries:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Assault
  • Falls
  • Chemical Exposure
  • Sporting Accidents
  • Hunting Accidents
  • Fireworks
  • Work related Accidents
  • Defective Products

Symptoms of Eye Injuries:

  • Blurred vision
  • Temporary vision loss
  • Red eyes
  • Swollen eyes
  • Double Vision
  • Fireworks in the Eye
  • Spots or Floating Images in Vision
  • Blindness

Eye Injuries from Motor Vehicle Accidents

During an automobile accident, blunt trauma to the head can cause a variety of eye injuries—including retinal detachment. If not recognized quickly and treated, these injuries can quickly deteriorate causing permanent vision loss and blindness. After an accident, it is important to seek medical attention quickly if you experience any changes in your vision. Immediate care is the best way to prevent permanent damage.

Eye Injuries in the Workplace

Many eye injuries occur while on the job. Carpenters and construction workers are especially vulnerable to corneal abrasions and lacerations from flying construction debris. Industrial workers may be at risk for chemical burns or toxic fumes that can adversely affect the eye and their vision. If you or someone you love suffered an eye injury while on the job, it is important to contact a Colorado personal injury attorney immediately to review your case and help you file for workman’s compensation. In addition, if your eye injuries are permanent, your attorney may also be able to assist you in filing for disability benefits and social security benefits if you are unable to work.
