Whether it was caused by a defective product or drug, or a car crash in Atlanta, GA, an attorney will have the required knowledge for aggressively pursuing a maximum recovery for your loses.
With access to a network of experts, a lawyer has the ability to determine the extent of your eye injury and the anticipated lifetime costs. A fair amount of damages can then be sought after for your current and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, property damage, lost income and loss of potential earning capacity.
These eye injuries tend to be the most commonly caused to the front of the eye:
A scratch on the surface of the eye can make you more susceptible to infection, which can cause blurred vision or even blindness.
A leakage of blood into the eye caused by a rupture in a blood vessel between the sclera and conjunctiva.
Bleeding in the space between the cornea and the iris.
Common injuries to the back of the eye structures, including the retina and optic nerve, are:
When the retina tears either partially or entirely, leading it to separate from the back of the eye. Surgery may be required for repair.
Inflammation of the uvea, iris, or both, and is typically the result of blunt trauma or chemical exposure.
When damage takes place to the structures surrounding the eye, the following injuries may occur:
Blood leaks into the skin surrounding the eyelid and can cause swelling.
A serious injury involving the eye socket bone, usually caused by severe trauma to the face.
There are many different ways these injuries can occur and place your vision in jeopardy, including blunt trauma, the presence of foreign bodies such as chemicals, or penetrating objects.
