For people who were born with the ability to see, it is something that they never imagined having to live without. Once it has been taken from you, however, life as you knew it will never be the same. In cases where a victim’s blindness happened in an accident that occurred as the result of another person’s negligence, the parties that caused the accident can be held liable.
Injury claims that involve a loss of sight are completely different from claims for other kinds of injuries. Beyond seeking compensation for medical care and lost wages, consideration must also be given to the care and accommodations that will be required in the future. Getting a fair settlement in these cases can be difficult, and it is important that you have strong representation from an experienced attorney.
