Vision Loss Cases Are Complicated – That’s Where We Can Help

Loss of eyesight is, in a word, devastating.

Both temporary and permanent vision loss may be the result of a serious accident. When the accident happens at work – or is the result of another person or party’s negligence in a traffic accident, for example – the victim may be eligible for significant compensation.

Nicolet Law Office, S.C., represents victims of accidents that have resulted in vision loss. To speak to an attorney in a free consultation, please complete our online contact form.

Temporary Vision Loss

Temporary vision loss (episodic blindness) is a serious issue that requires immediate medical attention.

Most often, temporary vision loss is caused by reduced blood flow to the eyes. However, temporary vision loss can also be caused by a traumatic brain injury in a car accident, after a serious fall or as the result of another accident.

Temporary blindness may resolve or may indicate a more serious vision issue.

If you have experienced temporary blindness in one or both eyes after an accident, it is important to seek immediate medical attention. In fact, any change in eyesight after an accident should be promptly assessed by an eye doctor. Conditions such as retinal detachment, corneal damage, vitreous hemorrhaging or inadequate blood supply to the retina could occur and may lead to permanent damage.

Permanent Blindness

One of the most devastating injuries that can occur as the result of an accident is blindness.

Permanent blindness changes life in so many ways: It may be impossible to keep working. Victims lose some off of their ability to drive, perform household tasks, run errands, and do day-to-day tasks.

Victims may also suffer emotionally. Vision loss may lead to depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders. Vision loss affects quality of life – and affects those close to the victim, as well.

Victims of accidents resulting in blindness should be aware of their legal rights and options. It is imperative to work with an attorney who understands the full, life-long impact of vision loss.

We can help you seek maximum compensation for all of your expenses and losses:

  • Lost wages
  • Lost productivity
  • Hospital bills
  • Medical expenses
  • Visual rehabilitation
  • Guide dog costs

The victim may face other costs, as well. Our goal is to seek compensation to cover all expenses related to the loss of vision.
