Wisconsin Eye Injury Attorney
Most of us take our eyes for granted. However, it is not until you face an eye injury that you really realize how important sight is for your daily life. There are several incidents and accidents that can result in eye trauma and blindness.
At Bye, Goff and Rohde, our Wisconsin Eye Injury Lawyers work on behalf of people facing serious trauma to the eye. We will work diligently to ensure that your accident is handled with the utmost care and you are compensated for your loss.
An eye injury can happen in several different accidents including:
- Auto accidents and other motor vehicle accidents. Sudden impact with a vehicle or other heavy object can cause permanent damage and disfigurement
- Work related accidents
- Slip and fall accidents often result in a heavy blow to the eye
- Burn accidents can lead to permanent blindness as well as disfigurement. Often burn accidents will be work related
- Animals often attack the face. If you are bitten by a dog near the eye, then you could face disfigurement as well as blindness
Apart from blindness, there are several other serious eye injuries that can occur due to an accident:
- Detached retina
- Permanent disfigurement
- Aniscoria eye injuries
- Horner’s syndrome
- Bell’s palsy
- Face paralysis
- Facial spasms
- Receding eye ball
Losing your sight can be a traumatic experience. Not being able to watch your children grow, to see your spouse’s smile on a daily basis and to experience the world as you once knew it can make it difficult for anyone, regardless of how strong you are. Even experiencing an eye injury that results in a disfigurement to the face can result in a loss of self esteem and quality of life. There are ways to overcome this type of injury both physically and mentally; however, it can take time, persistence and financial security to do so.
If you have experienced any trauma to the eye, then you may be able to recover damages for:
- Medical expenses
- Medical consultations and surgeries
- Loss of income
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
