Eyesight Loss

From 2009 to 2010, the state of Connecticut showed the largest percentage increase of traffic accident related fatalities than any other region in the United States. With the jump of a 42 percent from one year to the next, Connecticut drivers must be mindful of the many dangers present on the roads and highways across the state.

When a catastrophic injury occurs following a severe motor vehicle collision, loss of eyesight is one of the most common occurrences. Whether from natural causes or from a serious injury, many Americans suffer from eyesight loss across the country. Currently, there are approximately 3.4 million people ages 40 and above in American who are suffering from some sort of visual impairment or blindness. These statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention point to just how many people in the U.S. are suffering from the loss of eyesight.

Coming to terms with the aftermath of an accident is difficult, regardless of the severity of damages. Accident victims go through a whirlwind of emotions in dealing with their losses and what they will do in the future. In addition to emotional trauma, victims must then deal with the physical damages associated with the personal injury.

Symptoms of Vision Loss

Loss of eyesight is a frightening, unfamiliar feeling that often leaves accident victims in utter shock. Vision loss can truly change a person’s life in an instant. While vision loss ranges from partial to total and from temporary to permanent, any form of lost eyesight can be distressing to a personal injury victim. Following a catastrophic event, injured parties often need time to cope with their newfound physical state.

Beyond dealing with the many emotions that naturally come with eyesight loss, accident victims must worry that they will be awarded compensation to cover whatever lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering will follow. When this occurs, personal injury victims often fail to recognize that vision loss is occurring.

Vision loss often comes on slowly. The following are some of the common symptoms associated with vision loss:

  • Blurred Vision
  • Double Vision
  • Dimness
  • Streaks
  • Sudden farsightedness or nearsightedness
  • Floaters

Following an accident, those involved may slowly feel the onset of the above symptoms. When this occurs, accident victims must do their best to document their physical state each day. In addition, injured parties must keep a record of the medical bills, hospital visits, etc. that were necessary after the traffic collision occurred. If you or a loved one has suffered vision loss after an auto accident, our Hartford personal injury lawyers are prepared to guide you throughout the litigation proceedings.

Common Causes of Vision Loss

Nearly 14 million Americans ages 14 and above are suffering from some kind of eyesight loss, according to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Natural causes are typical in older individuals, however, when a younger person suffers from vision loss; personal injuries are commonly the cause. No matter what kind of personal injury has caused a loss of eyesight, accident victims must learn to deal with the new life that they will live.

Some of the most common causes of vision loss include:

  • Auto Accidents
  • Blow to the eye
  • Bright Lights
  • Chemical Spill
  • Contact Lens Solution Damages
  • Defective Airbag
  • Head Injury
  • LASIK Operation
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Medical Negligence
