Impaired Vision & Blindness

Overview

Sammy Davis Jr., an international celebrity and member of Frank Sinatra’s “Rat Pack”, may be the most famous person to experience sight loss in an accident. Davis’ near-fatal car crash occurred when another motorist backed directly into his path from an adjacent driveway. In that era before seatbelts and air bags, Davis’ unprotected face hit the pointed center of the steering wheel, puncturing his left eye.

Like Sammy Davis Jr.’s unexpected turn of events, sight loss or blindness can happen as a result of any type of motor vehicle accident. Children are particularly vulnerable when playing with sharp objects like broken sticks or in the path of flying debris from lawn trimmers or mowers. Other common occurrences include:

  • Playing high-risk sports
  • Propelled champagne bottle corks
  • Workplace and construction site mishaps
  • Boating incidents
  • Accidents aboard a cruise ship

Partial or total sight loss can also result from less ordinary events, such as:

  • Severe burns from fires or chemical splashes
  • Eye injuries due to product defects

Connecting your accident (or your child’s) to the party at fault is a critical element of your lost vision complaint. By identifying and working with subject-matter experts—including doctors ranging from ophthalmologists to neurologists—Lipcon’s catastrophic injury attorneys are highly effective in representing victims of accidental sight loss and blindness.
