Loss of Eyesight
There are countless illnesses and injuries that may result in a partial or total loss of eyesight. Blindness is considered a catastrophic injury because of the immense affect it will have on the victim, limiting his or her ability to work and care for him or herself. A person who has lost his or her eyesight will need to undergo extensive assistance to be able to read Braille and perform day-to-day activities.
Have you or someone you know suffered from loss of eyesight due to an accident, medical malpractice, or any other situation resulting from another person's conduct? Consulting a
personal injury lawyer is an important step to take in order to determine whether you may be able to take legal action against the person responsible for your injuries. At Pacific Attorney Group, we represent clients in cases involving blindness and eye injuries and your initial consultation with a skilled attorney is free.
Understanding Blindness and Eyesight Loss
Eyesight loss may be linked to physical trauma as well as medical conditions. Brain damage is a potential source of blindness or any vision problem, resulting from an
acquired brain injury or
congenital brain injury.
Toxic exposure or chemicals may also lead to blindness, as well as head trauma in an
auto accident or as the result of a
slip and fall. In some cases, a medication error,
defective drug or medical malpractice may lead to partial or total loss of eyesight as well. No two injury cases are the same. By investigating and evaluating your particular incident, an experienced attorney at our law firm can determine against what party you may be able to file a claim or lawsuit.
