Car Accident Blindness and Vision Loss Claim Lawyers in Georgia (GA)


May 17, 2021

Blindness and vision loss might not be common consequences of car accidents. These injuries are not rare, however, and they can have major effects on people’s lives. 

Types of Vision Injuries from Car Accidents

A few different types of car accident injuries affect a person’s eyes and vision. Some of the vision injuries that frequently result from car accidents include:

  • Visual disturbances (seeing stars, seeing spots, double vision)
  • Blurred vision
  • Hemorrhage 
  • Nerve damage
  • Retinal detachment 
  • Partial loss of sight 
  • Blindness

A car accident does not have to be severe to cause vision injuries. Minor accidents and accidents occurring at low speeds can lead to eye and vision injuries. Any visual disturbances deserve immediate medical attention, as they might be signs of other serious injuries. 

Causes and Treatment of Blindness and Vision Loss

Several events can happen during a car accident that lead to vision loss or visual disturbances. These might include:

  • Objects hitting the eyes
  • Airbag deployment into the face and eyes
  • Head trauma
  • Brain injury
  • Whiplash
  • Vehicle fire

Impacts to the eyes and the extreme light coming from a fire can lead to vision loss and blindness, but more often, the source is head injury. Concussions and brain injuries frequently cause visual disturbances and vision loss that might be temporary or permanent. 

Treatment for vision injuries can include rest, protective eyewear, eyedrops, and surgical procedures. The possibility of vision restoration will depend on a person’s circumstances.
