Some injuries heal with surgery, therapy or time. But blindness and vision impairment are often irreversible. Eye injuries are physically and psychologically devastating, and have a tangible impact on employability and all facets of life.
If you or a family member suffered an eye injury as a result of someone’s negligence, Monsees & Mayer, P.C., can help you pursue compensation for the lifelong impact. Our skilled lawyers know how to calculate the economic and personal loss and portray it to the defense lawyers or a jury.
Who Is Responsible For Ruining Your Eyesight?
Our Kansas City personal injury attorneys have obtained notable recoveries for cases of catastrophic injuries, including blindness and vision loss. We have handled cases of penetrating eye injury in construction accidents, auto accidents, bar fights and other circumstances. We also handle cases of visual impairment resulting from other accidents, such as chemical burns or brain trauma.
The monetary damages in an eye injury case are different from other traumatic injuries. Medical expenses are typically low because there is little doctors can do. We focus on the other tangible hardships and losses, and our client’s pain and suffering, such as:
- Vertigo, headaches and accompanying symptoms
- Loss of depth perception and hand-eye coordination
- Increased risk of future glaucoma
- Counseling for depression
- Loss of employment and earning capacity
- Transportation and assisted living services
