Benson & Bingham Accident Injury Lawyers, LLC law firm handle personal injury cases, and we want to help if you have sustained any vision loss or injuries. In the United States more than a million people suffer from eye injuries each year.
Our eyes are some of the most sensitive parts of our body; and, because of this, traumatic injuries can often lead to serious damage and loss of vision. Vision loss or blindness can be caused by objects that strike the eye, such as flying debris, defective contact lens cleaners, or contacts. Severe burns, from fire or exposure to chemicals, can also cause blindness or loss of vision. Blunt trauma to the head, is, unfortunately, largely responsible for loss of vision cases. It is estimated that about 1,700,000 Americans experience a traumatic brain injury each year; and, of those, about 20% have resulting vision changes.

Complete loss of vision/blindness
Partial loss of vision
Peripheral loss of vision
Injury to the optic nerve
Sensitivity to light
