Eyes are very delicate and it does not take much for an eye injury to occur. Just a small amount of harmful particles can result in significant damage to one’s vision. Eye scarring, scratching, pain, partial blindness, and full blindness can be the result of someone’s negligent behavior, affecting an innocent victim for the rest of his or her life. When such an awful injury is the direct result of another’s actions, it is time to take action of your own—legal action.

Did you know?
Many tanning salons do not strictly enforce guidelines implemented by the Food and Drug Administration, which specifically outline the dangers of UV radiation without proper eye protection.
By simply closing the eyes or using another device to block the eyes, other than the goggles that are meant specifically for this purpose, the cornea can burn, causing damage to the retina. This practice can result in the eye’s structure to begin to cloud, forming a cataract. In extreme cases, cataracts can lead to nighttime vision loss or permanent blindness.
