Were You Blinded in an Accident? You May Be Entitled to Damages
Chicago Injury Lawyers: Blindness
Although estimates vary, approximately 10 million people in America are blind or visually impaired and 1.3 million of them are legally blind, according to the American Foundation for the Blind.
While most loss of vision occurs due to natural causes, accidents, injuries, defective products, medical malpractice, dangerous drugs, dog bites and assaults can all cause blindness. Significant disabilities can occur even when only one eye is affected! In recent years, a defective contact lens solution and Viagra have both been linked to blindness.
