Vision Loss

Injury Lawyers Assisting Victims in Miami and Beyond

The ability to see dictates almost every aspect of our lives. In many instances, it is what someone needs to do their job or enjoy recreational activities. A loss of vision, even partially, may greatly restrict an individual’s daily life. When this loss is a result of another person or entity’s negligent or intentional acts, they should be held responsible for the financial impact. The Miami injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Robert Dixon handle all types of personal injury claims, including those arising from car accidents, motorcycle crashes, slip and falls, and defective products. We fight for our clients’ rights so that they can focus on getting well while knowing that their legal claims are being vigorously asserted.

Common Causes of Vision Loss Injuries

Losing vision in one or both eyes is a significant injury that may require multiple, complex surgeries, if it can be treated at all. Some common incidents in which vision loss may occur include:

  • Car or motorcycle collisions
  • Boating accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Defective products
  • Dog attacks
  • Workplace injuries

Many times, these accidents are due to another party’s reckless or careless actions. If this happens, victims may recover compensation for losses related to medical bills, loss of quality of life, earnings depreciation, and pain and suffering, among any other damages that may be appropriate.

Taking Legal Action Against Negligent Parties

Victims who have sustained vision loss as a result of another culpable party’s actions may pursue legal action through a personal injury claim. When this type of injury occurs in a motor vehicle accident, for example, a victim must show that another party was negligent in causing their harm. To establish negligence, the victim needs to prove that the defendant breached a duty of care, and the breach was a proximate cause of the vision loss.

If a victim’s vision loss was due to a faulty product, they might pursue a product liability case against the manufacturer. Defective products are dangerous to consumers, and manufacturers may be held strictly liable when they release unsafe items into commerce. For instance, if an airbag containing a design defect malfunctions, causing blindness or other injuries to a driver or passenger, the manufacturer of that part may be held accountable. Design defects are flaws in the blueprint of a product that make it inherently dangerous to consumers, even when it is used as intended.
