What Causes Hearing and Vision Loss?

Hearing and vision loss bring with them many challenges, many of which can alter your life indefinitely. Sometimes, loss of these vital senses is caused by an accident that occurred due to the negligence of another party. In those instances, you may be able to seek compensation.

Common New York Accidents That May Cause Hearing and Vision Loss

Although hearing and vision loss can happen organically as time progresses, there are also a wide array of accidents that can greatly accelerate this process. The following are some examples of accidents that may result in an injury that affects your hearing or vision.

Traffic Accidents

If you experienced a blunt force blow to your head during a car, truck, motorcycle, pedestrian, or bicycle accident, you might have a brain injury. These types of injuries are very serious and can affect your hearing and vision. Whiplash from an accident can also lead to hearing and vision injuries.

It is important to always seek medical attention after a car accident, even if your injuries are not immediately noticeable.

Workplace Injury

Hazardous conditions in the workplace can lead to sensory harm. However, these damages may not always be recognizable. You may have been exposed to loud sounds or toxic materials that can damage your sight and vision over a long period of time.

In these situations, you can typically file a workers’ compensation claim to help cover your losses. Working with one of our workers’ compensation lawyers will make the process easier and gives you a higher chance of success of getting the full amount of compensation you are entitled to. This compensation can cover many different medical costs and devices that you may need moving forward. In these cases, it does not matter if you or your employer were at fault. Insurance will likely cover damages.

In some cases, you may be able to seek additional compensation by filing a lawsuit against a negligent third party, such as a property owner or general contractor. We can factor in medical bills, loss of wages, and disruptions to your lifestyle when considering the compensation you may be able to pursue.

Shulman & Hill is well-versed in workplace injuries, including construction accidents, hospital worker injuries, tunnel worker injuries, and utility worker injuries, and can help you navigate every step of the legal process. If you are struggling because of an injury that you received while on the job, make sure to contact us as soon as you can.

Establishing Liability After a Hearing or Vision Injury

If a third party’s negligence contributed to your hearing or vision loss, you may be able to seek compensation from them via a personal injury lawsuit in addition to any workers’ compensation benefits you receive. An experienced New York personal injury lawyer can help investigate and gather evidence supporting your claim.

When establishing liability, your attorneys will collect evidence to prove that the third party—such as the property owner, general contractor, or subcontractor—was negligent. Examples of negligence include failure to provide necessary safety equipment or maintaining reasonably safe premises. Your attorney will then show how this negligence led to your injury, and the physical, economic, and emotional effects you suffer because of it.

The team of New York hearing and vision loss lawyers at Shulman & Hill has years of experience investigating and litigating workplace injury, personal injury, and premises liability cases. We can review the unique circumstances surrounding your case and do everything in our power to seek compensation for your damages.

How A New York Personal Injury Law Firm Can Help You

Once our personal injury lawyers have reviewed the full extent of your injury and related losses, we can then negotiate with the insurance company in order to obtain a fair settlement offer for you.

We will fight for compensation we believe adequately covers your losses, so if the defendant refuses to offer sufficient compensation, we will take your case to trial and fight for a favorable verdict.
