What are examples of eye injuries?
Eye injuries can happen in several different ways. Our attorneys advise that you seek medical treatment immediately after being involved in an accident, since medical care providers will be able to diagnose your injuries, and determine the best course of action. The longer you wait to seek medical treatment, the more aggravated your injuries can get. Oftentimes, defendants may also use it against you if you go to the doctors too late. The different types of eye injuries are:
- Penetration: this is one of the most common types of eye injuries, and one of the most serious injuries. This occurs especially at construction sites, where there are several different tools that could penetrate the eye socket. For example, there are several dangerous dust and wood particles that could be in the air and fly into the person’s cornea. Other objects, such as chemicals could also fly into the eye, penetrate the eye cornea, and cause permanent blindness.
- Scratches: this occurs when the cornea suffers different types of abrasions. Different types of dust, such as dirt and sand could scratch the cornea of the eye. When this occurs, an infection is likely to occur, and can aggravate your injuries if you do not seek immediate medical treatment. Infection could lead to blindness, and antibiotics are needed immediately.
- Bleeding: this occurs when the blood vessels in the eye pop. Sometimes, eye bleeding may be virtually harmless, but need medical treatment.
- Impact: oftentimes, victims may experience a sudden Impact to the eye. This most likely occurs during car accidents, when a large object from the vehicle is thrown towards someone’s eye. Symptoms of impact injury include blurred vision and headaches.
- Chemicals: constantly being around chemicals could also cause eye injury, such as burning of the cornea. Examples of chemicals include gasoline and paint thinners.
