What happens when a victim suffers a loss of vision as a result of an injury caused by another party?

When a victim suffers a loss of vision because of accident injuries, the results can be devastating for the victim and their family.  Not only does blindness have an impact on the emotional and physical states, but it can also cause overwhelming financial burdens because the victim may be unable to work.

Whether the loss of sight is immediate or occurs gradually after the injury, victims will likely struggle with all the changes this loss brings. In addition to total vision loss, some of the other common types of injuries that we have seen at our North Carolina injury firm include:

  • Loss of an eye
  • Damage to visual acuity
  • Impaired or damaged peripheral vision
  • Double vision or vertigo
