Our vision is so essential to daily life that we almost take it for granted. According to National Eye Institute (NEI) studies, a person’s eyes are responsible for up to 80 percent of sensory data the brain collects. Knowing that, it’s easy to see why any injury that causes vision issues can impose serious challenges on a person’s life.
Common Injuries that Lead to Vision Loss and Blindness
Jurewitz Law Group has helped many Carlsbad residents who’ve suffered injuries that lead to partial or total vision loss. Here are the most common accidents our clients have reported in vision loss accident claims:
• Head trauma – an injury to a person’s head can damage the eye itself or cause damage to any part of the brain that receives and processes visual information.
• Eye trauma – a direct injury to the eye can cause vision problems, including blindness. These types of injuries often happen during workplace accidents, car accidents, or other situations where flying particles can strike a person’s eye.
• Chemical exposure – people who work with chemicals must wear protective eye gear. A single drop of a certain chemical can cause a serious eye injury. Just the vapor from some chemicals can cause severe and permanent injury to the eyes.
