The trauma of a car crash can result in a serious eye injury. As with any type of car accident injury, you will need to prove what injury you suffered, why it happened, and who is legally responsible for it in order to recover damages.
Car Crashes and Eye Injuries
There are a variety of eye injuries you can sustain after a car crash. These injuries include:
- Lacerations. If the crash causes an object to scratch or punctures your eye, your vision may be impacted.
- Orbital fractures. Broken bones around your eye could impact your vision.
- Corneal abrasions. A scratch or abrasion of the cornea could impact your vision.
- Retinal detachments or tears. The force of the car crash can cause this serious type of eye injury.
- Chemical burn. If the powder from the airbag enters your eye, your vision could be affected by a chemical burn.
- Traumatic brain injury. Your vision may be impacted if certain areas of the brain are hurt.
