Accidents That Can Lead to Vision Loss and Blindness
There are four main factors that can lead to eye injuries. These factors can result from all types of accidents—including vehicle collisions, falls, and accidents involving defective products. Eye injuries and vision loss can also result from accidents such as:
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Dog Bites and Animal Attacks
- Watercraft and Boating Accidents
- Golf Cart Accidents
- Construction Accidents
- Premises-Related Accidents
In these (and other) types of accidents, the four main factors that can cause eye injuries and vision loss are:
Blunt Force Trauma
Blunt force trauma to the eye or another part of the head can cause internal damage that leads to vision loss or other visual impairments.
Objects penetrating the eye can also cause severe injuries. This includes everything from glass shards and other debris to nails, screws and other flying objects.
Exposure to toxic chemicals can cause vision impairments, including blindness. While toxic exposure is most common in the work environment, it can also occur due to vehicle collisions, product explosions and other accidents.
Ultraviolet Light Exposure
Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light can cause damage leading to vision loss and other visual impairments. This includes both long-term and flash exposure to certain types of lights, lasers and other UV sources.
Common Types of Eye Injuries
Each of these factors can lead to various types of common eye injuries. At Searcy Denney, our Florida eye injury lawyers help local residents and out-of-state visitors seek just compensation for conditions including:
