Boston Loss of Sight Lawyers Fight for Victims of Devastating Accidents

Massachusetts lawyers seek just compensation for total or partial blindness

Suffering total or partial blindness has a disastrous effect on your life and career. When loss of sight happens due to the negligence or other misconduct of another, you deserve to be fully compensated by the parties at fault. Feinberg & Alban P.C. fights aggressively pursue claims for people who lose all or part of their ability to see as a result of devastating accidents. From our offices in Center Plaza and Brookline, we serve the Greater Boston area.

What causes loss of sight?

Loss of sight can occur as the result of trauma or a medical condition. The loss can range from an impairment of your vision to total blindness. Traumatic eye injuries may include loss of one or both eyes, eye socket fractures, cornea scratches, retinal detachment and burning or irritation. Such catastrophic injuries may occur in various types of accidents, such as:

  • Car accidents
  • Workplace incidents
  • Sports injuries
  • Grease splatters
  • Strikes in the eye by flying objects

If you suffer a loss of sight as a result of someone else’s negligence or other wrongdoing, we can represent you in a lawsuit against the negligent parties.

The effects of losing your sight

Even partial blindness can have a serious impact on your life, making daily activities like reading, driving and navigating your surroundings more difficult. Total blindness might disable you from working and could make some of your common activities impossible. Loss of sight can also bring emotional distress, anxiety, depression, pain and a loss of independence, which can take a psychological toll on you and your loved ones. You might need specialized medical treatment, rehabilitation, adaptive technology and other care to address its effects, all of which can be costly. You may be entitled to damages for:

  • Medical and rehabilitative expenses
  • Other special care needs
  • Loss of your income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

If you suffer loss of sight in an accident due to someone else’s fault, we are ready to document and seek just compensation.

How we can help

Following your initial consultation, we will investigate how you lost your sight and determine who might be at fault. We will also gather accident reports, eyewitness accounts, medical records, expert testimony and other evidence of your accident and of how your loss of sight has affected your life. We will file claims and negotiate with the defendants’ insurance companies for fair compensation. If they do not make an acceptable settlement offer, we will file suit and take the case to trial. Although you have three years after an accident to bring suit, you should not wait. The sooner you retain us, the sooner we can work toward obtaining a positive result.
