Common Causes of Eye Injuries in California

Accident victims can suffer an eye injury or loss of vision in almost any type of accident. However, some of the most common eye injuries are caused by the following: 

If you have suffered an eye injury or loss of vision in an accident, you need an eye injury attorney who is familiar with that type of accident and therefore knows how to prove your case. 

Types of Eye Injuries That Occur After an Accident 

There is a broad spectrum of eye injuries that accident victims can suffer: 

  • Penetration injuries where a foreign object enters the eye causing damage to the physical structure of the eye. Penetration injuries are common in construction sites and industrial accidents where nails, metal shavings, or other objects can be driven into the eye at high speed and with considerable force. These often result in severe vision impairment and even permanent blindness. 
  • Direct and blunt impact injuries when a large object comes into contact with the eye or the area of the skull surrounding the eye with considerable force. These injuries can result in hematomas and eye pain and can cause blurry vision and light sensitivity. These types of injuries are common in motor vehicle accidents and are often paired with a traumatic brain injury. 
  • Chemical exposure injuries when the eye comes into contact with toxic liquids or fumes that can burn the eye that can cause both temporary or permanent damage. 
  • Ultraviolet light exposure injuries that result in severe damage to the eye, causing vision impairment and even blindness. People who work with industrial lighting or laser equipment are at risk for these types of injuries.

  • Total and permanent blindness
