What is an Eye Injury?
An eye injury is any injury that occurs directly to one’s eyes or eye sockets. Eye injuries can be particularly dangerous because of the sensitivity of the eye organs and related vision systems. Some eye injuries are temporary, while others can result in more lasting damage. New technologies have allowed for more advanced treatments of eye injuries, as well as preventative measures to help avoid eye injuries.
What are Some Common Examples of Eye Injuries?
An eye injury can occur in various different settings. Some common examples of eye injuries include:
- Work-related incidents
- Eye injuries involving chemicals
- Eye surgery injuries
- Injuries from glasses or contact lenses
- Eye strain-related conditions
- Injuries from makeup and cosmetics, especially permanent makeup
- Injuries resulting from a fight or an assault
Who Can be Held Liable for an Eye Injury?
This depends of course on the type of injury involved and the various facts surrounding the incident. Parties that can potentially be held liable for an eye injury may include:
- Manufacturers of dangerous equipment
- Sports facilities (such as Airsoft arenas)
- Supervisors or employers who have been negligent in the safety considerations of workers
- Other citizens (for instance, in an assault and battery case)
Remedies for eye injuries will typically include a damages award intended to compensate the plaintiff for their losses. Damages usually cover general medical expenses, and other costs such as lost wages or lost earning capacity. State laws may sometimes place limits on the amounts of damages that can be recovered in an eye injury lawsuit.
