Causes of Hearing and Vision Loss in Manhattan

Many types of accidents can lead to vision and hearing loss. Some of the common accidents that can lead to vision and/or hearing loss are:

Car Accidents

Many injuries are associated with motor vehicle accidents. If anything hits your head with enough force during the crash, you could suffer from a traumatic brain injury. Hearing and vision loss are common side effects of a TBI. Since a large portion of brain function is dedicated to auditory and visual processing, head injuries can leave injured drivers or passengers with long-lasting consequences.

During a car accident, broken glass or other debris may get into your eyes. This can also result in vision loss.

Work Injuries

Many jobs can lead to hearing and vision loss. For example, if you work in a loud factory, your hearing could be negatively affected over time. In other instances, sudden and extremely loud noises can instantly cause damage.

People who work with hazardous chemicals are at risk for vision loss if any dangerous substances get into their eyes. Welders are also susceptible to eye injuries, like welder’s flash, and must wear protective eyewear to protect their eyes from the effects of welding arcs.

Types of Injuries

Just as there are numerous causes of vision and hearing loss, there are also numerous injuries one can suffer from.

Common eye-related injuries include:

  • Double vision
  • Partial or total loss of vision
  • Detached retina
  • Foreign objects in the eye
  • Eyelid disfigurement
  • Loss of one or both eyes
  • Sensitivity to light

Some of the most common ear injuries include:

  • Ruptured eardrum
  • Internal ear canal bleeding
  • Damage to the cochlea
  • Temporal lobe lesions
  • Partial or total loss of hearing

What Are My Legal Options After a Manhattan Hearing or Vision Loss Injury?

Treatment for any type of injury always has the potential to be costly. Vision and hearing injuries are no exception. Surgeries that involve treatment of hearing and vision problems can be delicate, lengthy procedures. Unfortunately, this usually means you may receive some expensive medical bills. On top of that, if you have to miss any work as a result of your injuries and treatment, you could lose wages as well.

When you suffer a hearing or vision loss injury due to someone else’s negligence, it is possible to seek compensation for the financial losses you may have suffered. You can contact one of our Manhattan lawyers to see what your options are. Your legal recourse will often depend on where and how the injury happened.

Work Injuries

If you were injured at work and it affected your hearing or vision, you will be eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim. If your claim is approved, you can receive benefits that can help cover hospital and doctor’s bills, adaptive devices such as hearing aids, and any therapy you receive as a result. Taking advantage of workers’ compensation means that you may not need to prove whether the injury was your fault. You will just need to show that the injury happened on the job.

Filing a workers’ compensation claim seems straightforward in theory. In reality, the process can be complex. You will need to fill out the forms exactly the way you are required to and ensure that your proof is sufficient in proving the nature of your injury.

The paperwork alone can be a headache to complete. It can be especially grueling if you are suffering from vision loss while trying to fill it out. Our attorneys at Shulman & Hill are well-versed in workers’ compensation claims. We can make sure that your claim is filled out correctly and that you have the best chance of receiving benefits.

Injuries Caused by a Third Party’s Negligence

If your hearing or vision injury occurred due to a motor vehicle accident or similar accident outside of work, a third party may have been at fault. In this instance, you may be able to file a lawsuit against that party for compensation. To obtain a settlement or verdict for your injuries, you need substantial proof that the defendant was negligent. This involves proving several things:

  • The other party had a duty of care to act in a reasonably prudent manner
  • The other party violated that duty
  • As a result, you sustained hearing or vision loss

If you are injured at work and another party’s negligence other than your employer caused you to suffer from hearing or vision loss, you may also be able to file a lawsuit for additional compensation.
