Loss of vision, also known as blindness, occurs when a person loses visual perception due to neurological or physiological disorders. Symptoms of vision loss or impairment include but are not limited to, blurriness, dimness, double vision, seeing floaters or streaks, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. Whether it is permanent or temporary, an accident which brings about loss or impairment of vision is a frightening and life-changing event.
Although, after suffering from vision loss or impairment, an accident victim’s first act should be to seek immediate medical treatment so that his or her condition can be correctly identified and the source and cause diagnosed, the victim will also need to consider how to protect his or her legal rights. To do this, a victim will require an aggressive, skilled attorney with experience in serious personal injury litigation.
