Orbital Fracture Lawsuit Attorneys – Call Us Today
Your eye is housed in what’s called a socket, or a hollow bony structure that holds it in place and allows it to swivel from one end to the other. In an accident such as an auto crash, orbital fractures are very common and can present a unique situation where the victim requires surgery in order to repair the eye socket or orbit, as well as remove any shards of bone which could have shattered upon impact. Eye socket injuries after a car accident typically result from the blunt force trauma due to the forces associated with the moment of impact, and they can cause temporary or permanent vision loss. If the accident that caused your orbital fracture or eye injury wasn’t your fault, you have every right to file a lawsuit to recover money damages as well as seek justice and closure from the responsible party, and we’re here to help with this.

Not only does the eye socket or orbit house the eye, it is also innervated by a rich network of nerves and blood vessels providing information as well as nutrition to the eye and surrounding tissue. In addition, given the thickness of the socket in some areas, this structure is very hard to break. Therefore, there must have been a large amount of force at the moment of impact in a car accident to cause the eye socket to shatter.
Some of the symptoms of an orbital fracture include:
- Vomiting and nausea
- Blurred vision
- Seeing doubles
- Pain especially around your nose, cheeks and eyes
- A swollen socket
- Sunken eyes
- Dark circles, and in some cases, swollen, purple under-eyes.
- Drooping eyelid
- Light sensitivity
- Being unable to move one’s eye
Surgery for Orbital Fracture After a Car Accident
While surgery can fix a broken eye socket, surgeons like to typically wait a few weeks until the swelling has gone down. However, individuals who have eyeballs that have been pushed back into the socket even after they’ve healed for a few weeks, those who still have blurry vision or double vision many weeks later are all candidates for immediate surgery, which is done by a reconstructive surgeon.
