Three Kinds of Accidents That Can Lead to Blindness

To say that your eyes are delicate is a total understatement. For as rugged as much of the human body is, there are those few sensitive spots – and the eyes are one of the most vulnerable. While they can sustain a certain amount of abuse, if the trauma is severe enough, it can lead to partial or complete blindness. As a personal injury firm, Jurewitz Law Group has seen a wide variety of accidents lead to vision loss. The following are just a few of the situations that lead to vision issues that our clients have encountered:

  • Car, Truck, or Motorcycle Accidents – While this may seem like an obvious way in which a person could lose their sight, the reasons may not be as clear. When a vehicle accident happens there is a tremendous amount of debris flying around. Even the smallest piece of flying glass, asphalt or metal can have dire implications for a person’s eyesight. On top of that, any severe blow to the head could rupture blood vessels within the eye or the eye itself.
  • On-the-Job Accidents – Job sites, especially those involving construction or manufacturing can be hazardous for your eyes. There are any number of ways a person can get hurt, from flame and chemical exposure to explosive steam.
  • Medical Malpractice – When you go in for any type of medical procedure, you’re putting our trust in a professional. Your surgeon, family doctor or even your ophthalmologist has to take great care to ensure you are not harmed in any way. All it takes is one irresponsible action or choice on the part of your doctor to rob you of eyesight.
