Loss of Eyesight

Ocular trauma is second only to cataracts as the most common visual impairment cause in the US. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, over 20,000 eye injuries in the workplace occur annually. It is estimated that up to 90% of all eye injuries are preventable with the use of protective eyewear. There are several different illnesses or injuries that may cause the loss of eyesight including head trauma, particles or objects in the eye, chemical exposure, electrical shock or medical malpractice events. Reduced or limited vision loss or blindness is a devastating injury for the duration of a temporary condition and especially as a life-long permanent disability.

If you or a loved one has suffered as a result of negligence from careless actions or a disregard for the safety of others in an auto accident, dangerous conditions at work, medical malpractice situation or vicious assault, you need a legal advocate to provide you with the legal service and support you deserve so you can focus on moving forward with your life. Contact the Johnson Attorneys Group in California today to get the help you deserve. Your visual impairment injury may entitle you to both economic damages for medical expenses and non-economic damages for the life-changing effect that the pain and discomfort your eyesight loss has had on the quality of your everyday life and the lives of those you love.

Understanding the Forms of Eyesight Loss

Individuals who suffer vision loss have to learn to overcome limiting abilities to perform everyday activities for self-care and are often left with an inability to rejoin the workforce.  Diagnosis factors include permanent or temporary duration and full (complete blindness) or partial blindness (varying degrees of vision impairment). Patients can suffer from blindness in one eye (unilateral blindness) or blindness in both eyes (bilateral blindness). Treatment will depend on the cause of the eyesight loss and early medical care will ensure the best possible outcome.

Common Causes of Trauma Resulting in Blindness

Damage to any part of the eye, optic nerve or brain receptors responsible for vision can lead to blindness. There are several disease-related causes of cataracts, diabetes, and degeneration from age or inherited eye disease. Injuries affecting eyesight from trauma can include symptoms from a concussion or traumatic brain injury, foreign objects or particles, lacerations, and corneal abrasion, hyphema (hemorrhage caused by direct blunt trauma), unprotected exposure to chemicals or ultraviolet keratitis (exposure to direct ultraviolet light).

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
