Personal Injury Lawyers serving Atlanta, Alpharetta and all Georgia
Eye accidents can cause damage that can affect a person for the rest of their life. Partial or total loss of vision in one or both eyes as the result of the negligence or actions of another person means you have the legal right to seek financial compensation for not only your injuries but also for any lasting disability caused by the accident. If you or a loved has suffered an eye injury caused by another party you should speak a personal injury attorney at Van Sant Law.
Some eye injuries result from an accident caused directly by another person such as an auto accident, work or sports injury. Other eye accidents can be caused by defective products or equipment. Whatever type of accident it may be, once we establish whoever the responsible party or parties may be we can fight on your behalf to get a settlement to pay for your medical bills both present and future as well as your pain and suffering. It could be an individual, a business or the manufacturer of a defective product that is held legally responsible.
Causes of Eye Injuries
Some eye injuries, especially those resulting in blindness are considered catastrophic injuries because there can never be a complete recovery from the damage caused. Some eye injuries, especially those caused by a severe trauma to the head may not completely manifest the full extent of the damage until some time has passed. It is important to get the very best diagnosis and medical care possible to treat severe eye injuries and to properly assess the extent and amount of treatment that may be required. Our attorneys will work closely with your medical providers to get all the documentation necessary to seek the comprehensive settlement to provide the very best of care. Some common causes of eye injuries include:
- Car and truck accidents
- Explosions such as car batteries
- Metal fragments from defective tools or equipment
- Corrosive sprays, paints or chemicals
