More than 20 million Americans live with significant vision loss and 1.3 million of them are legally blind, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. The attorneys at Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder PC, represent people who have lost some or all of their sight due to eye injuries caused by negligence.
Causes of Eye Injuries
There are numerous ways people can sustain serious eye injuries through no fault of their own.
- Medical malpractice — An eye surgeon error can result in a detached retina or total blindness.
- Dangerous or defective products, from contaminated contact lens solution to car batteries that explode to power tools, such as nail guns and unguarded saws, drills and other machinery
- Work site and construction injuries, including those involving welding, arc flash injuries and chemical exposure
- Accidents, including auto accidents and recreational accidents
Broken bones and other types of injuries eventually heal, but vision loss is often permanent. Our attorneys understand the dramatic impact an eye injury can have on your life. You may need extensive and ongoing medical care and vocational rehabilitation. Your ability to work and earn a living can be dramatically altered.
