The Explosion Victim Resource Center Reviews New CDC Mass Trauma Preparedness Primer for Eye Injuries as a Result of Explosions

MADISON, WI--(Marketwire - Nov 28, 2011) - In its continuing efforts to help educate people on the dangers of explosions, the Explosion Victim Resource Center has reviewed the mass trauma preparedness primer released by the Center for Disease Control. The information was compiled for emergency response teams to help them better understand explosion injuries and the most common injuries suffered by blast victims. The report focuses on injuries that explosion victims frequently suffer, including eye injuries from flying debris. According to the report, 10% of people that survive the initial blast will suffer some type of eye injury.

The Explosion Victim Resource Center presented by Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. has reviewed this information and is prepared to help victims that have suffered from an eye injury better understand what type of treatment may be available and what their legal options are following a blast caused by a company or individual's negligence.

Eye injuries often involve:

  • Complete or partial loss of vision
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Contusions

Even small fragments of debris can create long-term vision problems for explosion victims. Finding a support group and ongoing treatment can make a huge difference in a victim's recovery process. If an individual completely loses his or her ability to see or has permanently impaired vision, he or she may be eligible to take action against the party responsible for the explosion.
