Minnesota Retinal Detachment Attorney

The micro-tissue that lines the inside of the eye is called the retina.  When light strikes the retina, it causes a biochemical change within layers of the retina that stimulate an electrical reaction.  Visual messages are sent through the optic nerve to the brain within the nerve endings in the retina.

Retinal Detachment

Retinal detachment occurs when the retina is torn or pulled away from its normal position and the blood vessels are separated.  The separation from blood supply can quickly cause degeneration of the retina (tissue death) and create an emergency situation.  Retinal detachment can cause blindness and, in serious cases, loss of the eye, if left undiagnosed or untreated.

Trauma from a car accident or a slip and fall can cause most retinal detachments.

Symptoms

Half of all traumatic retinal detachments are instantaneous while the other half have a gradual onset with the following symptoms:

  • Significant vision loss. Any sudden vision loss is a medical emergency.
  • Affects to the peripheral vision, like a shadow or curtain crossing part of your vision field
  • Sudden flashes of light or floaters

If you have been in a motor vehicle accident and have sustained an eye injury because of another person’s reckless behavior, it is important to seek legal advice to understand your rights and learn about claiming a compensation settlement to help you pay for medical bills, rehabilitation and lost wages.  Our attorneys at Tarshish Cody are experienced with handling all kinds of eye injury cases and we have assisted our clients to obtaining the settlement they deserve.  Contact us today on 612-808-8999 (or fill out the free Case Evaluation Form) to learn more about how we can help.
