    Why you need a Denver eye injury lawyer

    Eye injuries often involve complex issues involving vision impairment, disfigurement, pain and long term changes to a victim’s life. After an accident causing eye injuries, the responsible party and its insurance company may try to deny liability or undervalue your claim. Insurance companies have a profit incentive to pay as little as possible on injury claims. You may be offered a settlement far below the fair value of your case, or even no offer at all. An experienced Denver eye injury attorney can help you pursue damages and obtain fair compensation after an accident.

    Common causes of eye injuries in an accident

    The tissues of the eye and around the eye are delicate and susceptible to injury. Common causes of eye injuries include:

    • Trauma: a blow to the eye with a hard object can damage the eye, eyelids, surrounding muscles and bones. Motor vehicle accidents are common causes of traumatic eye injuries.
    • Acceleration/deceleration forces: eyes involve delicate tissues that can be damaged by acceleration/deceleration forces caused by a car accident, slip and fall, or other force exerted on your body. These are whiplash type injuries that can affect the internal structure of your eye and cause vision impairments.
    • Cuts and scratches: sharp objects can scratch the eye and cornea leading to pain, vision changes and other injuries.
    • Objects in the eye: objects can enter the eye such as metal shavings, wood chips, sand and glass slivers, resulting in scratches and abrasions to the eye and cornea.
    • Chemical burns: Chemicals can cause serious burns to the eye and tissue surrounding it. Alkalis, such as drain cleaners, oven cleaners and fertilizers are high risk substances for eye burns.

    Eye injury statistics

    Motor vehicle collisions are a leading cause of eye injuries. Auto accidents present a unique eye injury risk due to:

    • Rapid changes in velocity
    • Broken glass exposure
    • Airbag deployment
    • Lack of restraint use
    • Facial impact with hard surfaces 
    • Exposure to foreign objects
    Qualified studies confirm the serious risk of eye injuries in a car accident:
    • Each year over 10,000 eye injuries caused by motor vehicle crashes required emergency medical treatment
    • Males account for almost 60% of motor vehicle accident eye injuries
    • Eye injuries in car wrecks are highest among teens ages 15 to 19
    • Drivers suffer over 60% of auto accident eye injuries treated in emergency departments
    • Contusions and abrasions are the most common diagnoses 

    If you suffered an injury to your eyes due to someone else’s negligence in a motor vehicle collision, contact our Denver car accident attorneys for help getting the compensation you deserve.

    Eye injuries can occur in other accident events, such as workplace injuries, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice and defective products. Our Denver eye injury attorneys help clients recover compensation for injuries in these and other situations. Call Front Range Injury Attorneys to speak with one of our lawyers about your case.

    Who is liable for an eye injury under Colorado law?

    Liability for your eye injuries depend upon the circumstances of the accident. In the case of a car accident, a negligent driver may be liable for the collision and your injuries. Other parties may share liability such as a car owner, business when the driver was on the clock, or a car manufacturer. Workplace injuries may result in workers’ compensation benefits; however, third parties may also be liable for your injuries. Businesses or property owners may be liable for accidents on their premises that lead to eye injuries.

    Liability under Colorado personal injury law is both a legal and factual question. Our Denver eye injury lawyers will carefully investigate the circumstances of your case to determine the best possible approach to hold responsible parties accountable.
