New York Hearing and Vision Loss Lawyer

As you get older, your hearing and vision may start to fade. Although, it is possible to have an injury that results in more sudden hearing or vision loss. If this happens to you or a loved one, you will likely be unprepared to handle the impact the accident could have on your life.

If your sensory loss happened at the workplace, in a maritime accident, as a result of a brain injury, or because of another party, one of our personal injury lawyers at Shulman & Hill may be able to help you. There are many different steps in the legal processes to consider, but hiring an attorney can help you pursue compensation for any losses.

Types of Vision and Hearing Loss

There are many different instances of vision and hearing loss. Each case is different and should be treated with the utmost care. These are just some of the many injuries one might experience:

Eye Injuries

  • Detached retina
  • Loss of vision
  • Loss of an eye
  • Disfigurement
  • Increased sensitivity to light
  • Double vision

Ear Injuries

  • Cochlear injury
  • Bleeding from the ear canal
  • Middle ear injury
  • Ruptured eardrum
  • Disfigurement

Even if you do not see your injury here, you should consider contacting a New York hearing and vision lawyer. At Shulman & Hill, we can discuss your injury and loss of vision or hearing. After all, you may be entitled to compensation for a variety of injuries.

What Causes Hearing and Vision Loss

Hearing and vision loss bring with them many challenges—many of which can alter your life indefinitely. Often, loss of 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.

Accidents That Cause Hearing and Vision Loss

The following are some examples of accidents that may impact a person’s senses negatively:

Car Accidents

If you experienced a blunt force blow to your head, 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.

If you were hit with debris in the accident, you might have suffered severe harm. It is important to seek medical attention immediately after a car accident.

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 time.

For these situations, you can use a workers’ compensation claim to cover your losses. If people or equipment caused your injury, you could seek compensation from them with help from a lawyer. Shulman & Hill is well-versed in workplace injuries and construction accidents and can help you throughout the legal process.

Defective Items

If a defective item caused your injury, you would also be able to seek out compensation from the company responsible for creating that product. For example, contact solutions have caused infections in the past. These infections can lead to vision loss. In this particular case, the company involved had to settle and pay compensation to its customers.

Malpractice

Medical malpractice, such as a mistake during surgery or general negligence, can cause you to lose hearing or vision. If a doctor failed to diagnose a condition that led to your loss of sense, you would also be eligible to pursue compensation.

Workers’ Compensation for Injuries

Suppose you received an injury while at work. You may be able to file a claim for workers’ compensation. 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.

However, the insurance company may not compensate for your pain and suffering. If another party was responsible for your injury and subsequent loss of sense, then a lawyer can help you seek additional compensation.

We always factor in pain and suffering, loss of wages, and change of lifestyle when considering what you should receive in benefits. 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.

The statute of limitations will generally end after three years since your injury. If you wait too long, you may not be able to receive any compensation.

Establishing Liability

If a third-party caused your injury, you could also pursue this avenue and seek compensation from them as well. Again, lawyers can do the investigating for you and provide evidence for your claim. When establishing liability, attorneys can attempt to:

  • Prove the third-party was supposed to prevent the injury
  • Prove the third-party was negligent
  • Prove the third-party caused the accident
  • Prove that you suffered physical, emotional, and economic damages

Our team of lawyers at Shulman & Hill are very experienced when it comes to proving who was responsible for an accident. We can consider the situation surrounding your case and do everything within the law to seek compensation for your damages.

Handling the Insurance Company

On top of gathering evidence, our team can determine your damages. We can then negotiate with the insurance company for you. You can feel confident that we can fight for the best compensation for you and even file a lawsuit on your behalf if need be.
