Traumatic Eye Injuries and Blindness
Damage to your eyes or optic nerves often requires expensive specialized treatment and medical rehabilitation. At Kraft Davies Olsson PLLC, we seek to help those who have suffered serious eye injuries to recover those costs from all liable parties. Because we accept cases on a contingent fee basis and advance the costs necessary to prosecute the claim, we are careful to select cases that have merit and that we know will result in a favorable outcome for our clients.
If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic eye injury or blindness as a result of a workplace accident or any other type of accident, contact us at 206.624.8844 for an initial no-cost, no-obligation consultation.Skilled Eye Injury Attorneys in Washington — Common Symptoms and Eye Injuries
The symptoms associated with an eye injury will vary significantly depending on what structures were damaged, and injuries may be temporary or permanent. After suffering severe head trauma or eye injury, a patient could suffer a variety of injuries to the eyes, including:
- Injury to the optic nerve
- Blurred vision
- Partial or total loss of vision/blindness
- Loss of peripheral vision
- Double vision
- Corneal abrasion
- Injury to the iris
- Injury to the lenses inside the eye
- Hyphemas (bleeding occurring in the front of the eye)
- Lacerations or cuts to the eye
- Foreign objects or material lodged in the eye
- Burns to the eye from heat, fire or chemicals
Sometimes surgery is an option to restore vision; at others, surgery is not helpful. When total blindness results in one or both eyes, patients need assistance in adapting to the loss of vision and may need occupational therapy, adaptive devices, canes or service animals.
