Vision Loss from Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries can result in serious disabilities, including damage to the brain’s ability to process sight or receive information from the eyes. As a result, a person may experience considerable trouble seeing or may become entirely blind following a traumatic brain injury. Sadly, blindness and partial vision loss can cause significant problems for an injured individual, both in the victim’s personal relationships and professional life.
If you or someone you love has suffered vision loss or damage in a brain injury caused by someone else’s negligent or reckless behavior, there may be financial compensation available to cover the costs of treatment and disability management.

Consequences of Vision Loss
While the loss of vision can have serious emotional repercussions, this disability can also drastically affect many other areas of a person’s life. These lifestyle and professional complications may include the following:
- Job loss or career opportunity loss
- Inability to drive
- Additional stress throughout the day due to the disability
- Declining quality of life
- The cost of altering a home to accommodate for blindness
If a person faces these difficult issues because of another individual’s careless mistakes, the accident victim may be entitled to compensation from the party at fault to cover the resulting from the traumatic brain injury and ensuing vision damage.
Blindness, double vision, and other vision problems resulting from a traumatic brain injury can leave you with substantial financial burdens from medical expenses and the cost of managing a vision disability. However, if your injury was caused by someone else, he or she may be obligated to cover these expenses.
