What Are Some Common Types of Accidents Associated With Eye Injury?
In a recent report by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, it was calculated that roughly 2.5 million people experience some form of eye injury each year. 50,000 of those people permanently lose their sight, of which 73 percent include men ranging from 18 to 45 years of age. While it seems the numbers favor men, eye injury can happen to anyone, anywhere. At that point the question becomes, is someone to blame? Some of the more common types of accidents that result in mild to severe eye trauma include:
AUTOMOBILE, TRUCK, BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS
Because of the speed and force behind most automobiles on the road, accidents involving one can amount to serious vision loss. Overly powerful airbags, flying debris and other such variables can play heavy into these injuries.
MALPRACTICE RELATED TO EYE SURGERIES
With the rise of LASIK corrective eye surgery and other such procedures, many people found themselves under the knife with a less than qualified physician. Other eye complications can arise in any number of surgeries, all of which doctors can potentially be held liable.
WORKPLACE ACCIDENTS IN NEW JERSEY
Indeed, construction zones, hardware facilities, lumber yards, manufacturing plants and factories are some of the most potentially hazardous areas for your eyes. Even with protective goggles to shield against flying debris, long term exposure to potent chemicals, metallic dust, woodchips and scorching or freezing temperatures can lead to permanent sight damage.
SPORTS & OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES
Outdoor enthusiasts, including cyclists and athletes, are routinely exposed to dangerous eye conditions, many of which that can lead to permanent loss of sight. Anything from a wild pitch at the mound, a loose puck in stands or an errant golf ball drive can lead to massive eye trauma.
