When victims of Fort Lauderdale auto accidents suffer an eye injury including blood in the eyeball, eye pain, deformity of the orbital bone structure or eye socket, or changes in the shape of the pupil, their vision can suffer. Another type of eye injury that can seriously injure an accident victim is when the optic nerve is shaken or swells following a crash. When this happens, traumatic optic nerve damage can occur and can cause the victim partial vision loss or complete blindness.
Lives of victims who suffer from eye injuries may be forever changed in the following ways:
• May never be able to see again
• May not be able to work and earn a living
• May not be able to drive again
• May not be able to take care of oneself or others, such as children
• May not be able to cook, clean or do other household tasks
When victims of Florida car crashes suffer in these ways, they need to be compensated for pain and suffering, lost income, medical expenses and more. Victims of these serious injuries should not be dealing with the insurance company alone.
