The Arizona Department of Transportation recorded a total of 3,260 motorcycle accidents in the state of Arizona throughout 2012. Of these accidents, 145 were fatal and 2,717 people were injured. Of these injuries, some included injuries to the eyes, which may have been prevented by wearing proper motorcycle eyewear.
As motorcycles are open to the outdoors, riders are susceptible to objects striking them and striking their eyes, especially if no eyewear is worn. Furthermore, a helmet can be worn in order to protect a rider from forces of the outdoors, while this has also saved thousands of riders lives each and every year.
At Phillips Law Group, our Phoenix motorcycle accident attorneys have sympathy for those injured in motorcycle accidents and believe that if you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligent actions of another individual, the victim may be entitled to compensation for their losses and damages.

Common Types of Motorcycle Eyewear
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcycle eye protection may prevent vision impairment caused by gusts of wind and foreign objects, while also preventing injuries to the eyes.
Some common types of motorcycle eyewear include:
- Face Shields
- Helmets with Visors
In order for these to be effective, there are certain specifications a rider should be aware of when preparing to go for a ride. These specifications include:
- Assure eyewear allows air to pass through
- Assure eyewear is secured properly
- Assuring eyewear has clear peripheral vision
- Assuring eyewear is resistant to penetration
- Assuring eyewear is scratch free
It should also be noted that tinted eyewear should not be worn at nighttime as it will reduce a riders visibility. It is also important to select comfortable eye protection and protection that is able to reduce glare.
Common Types of Rider Eye Injuries
With nearly 2.4 million Americans seeking emergency room assistance due to some type of issue with their eyes, riders may contribute to this number. Some common types of rider eye injuries include:
- Chemical burns
- Eye bleeding
- Hyphemas, orbital blowout fractures
- Penetrating injuries
- Scratched eyes
- Traumatic iritis
Furthermore, deep puncture wounds are common following both motorcycle and automobile accidents, which is why it is recommended to always wear eye protection.

I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Phillips is the best!! Love all that they do to give back to the community and how much they help those who are experiencing homelessness. ❤️
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
Jasmine helped me so so much I want to thank her ! And also Aaron , i was always scared after an accident , knowing I would have to deal with lawyers but not here . Luckily I’ve only been in 3 accidents but this time it was fast and easy . And i received all the treatments I needed to help me recover ! Thank you Jasmine and Aaron!
Liz was great
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
