Eye Injuries and Vision Loss in Motorcycle Accidents in Alabama

Motorcycle accidents are infamous for causing severe physical injuries, given the little protection a motorcycle offers compared to other vehicles. One such dreaded impact of motorcycle accidents in Alabama and across the country is the risk of eye injuries and vision loss. These injuries can range from minor, temporary conditions to severe, permanent disabilities. Protecting your rights as a victim of a motorcycle accident is important, especially if you have suffered an eye injury. If you or a loved one has experienced such an ordeal, consult with a skilled personal injury lawyer like Stephen Thompson, who, with his expertise and commitment, can help you secure the compensation you deserve.

The spectrum of eye injuries in motorcycle accidents is broad. It could be as mild as a corneal abrasion or as severe as a traumatic optic neuropathy, which can lead to complete, irreversible vision loss. Apart from these, other potential eye injuries include hyphema (blood in the eye's anterior chamber), orbital fractures, retinal detachment, and lens dislocation. All these conditions can dramatically affect a victim's quality of life and may need extensive medical treatment.

Wearing protective eyewear while riding a motorcycle can mitigate the chances of eye injuries. However, accident situations can often overpower such measures, and injuries can still occur. The liability for these accidents varies depending on the circumstances. If another party’s negligence caused the accident, they might be liable for your injuries. In other cases, product defects, such as faulty motorcycle parts or defective helmets, might be to blame.

To determine and establish fault and receive compensation, consultation with an experienced personal injury attorney such as Stephen Thompson is crucial. Thompson has a deep understanding of Alabama's personal injury laws, motorcycle accident cases, and has the tools to conduct thorough investigations to prove negligence.

The compensation the victims of eye injuries from a motorcycle accident are entitled to include:

  • Medical expenses: Both present and future medical bills related to the injury, including surgery costs, prescriptions, physiotherapy, and so forth. Hiring a skilled attorney like Stephen Thompson can help in accurately calculating these costs for fair compensation.
  • Pain and suffering: This is compensation for the physical pain and emotional distress following the accident and injury. Calculating pain and suffering can be complex, but it significantly affects the total amount of compensation.
  • Lost wages: If your eye injury forced you to miss work or even lose your job altogether, you are entitled to compensation for lost income.
  • Loss of Consortium: If your injury affects your relationship or happiness of your spouse, they might be entitled to this type of compensation.
