Causes of eye injuries and blindness may include:
- Car accidents
- Construction accidents
- Brain injuries
- Burn injuries
- Medical malpractice
- Animal attacks
- Exposure to chemicals
- Sports injuries
- Inadequate workplace safety measures
Individuals who lose the sight in one or both eyes will need extensive occupational therapy to relearn daily tasks such as dressing, grooming, cooking, shopping and traveling safely. A person who is completely blind may need the assistance of a service dog. In addition, people who lose their sight often suffer depression, anger and additional mood disorders. Psychotherapy may help them learn to adjust to life with blindness.
Whether engaged in the care of the injury victim or working to support the family after a wage earner loses his or her sight, family members’ lives will certainly be impacted. The family may need compensation for medical bills, monthly expenses and lost income.Make an Appointment with a New York City Blindness Attorney
