Staten Island Hearing and Vision Loss Lawyer

It is natural for your hearing and vision to deteriorate over time as you age. If you are injured in an accident though, you may suddenly lose your hearing or vision prematurely.

If you suffer hearing or vision loss due to a work-related injury, you will likely need to adapt to a new lifestyle and a number of medical expenses and other losses. In these cases, injured workers are often able to seek compensation.

You can review your case with a Staten Island hearing and vision loss attorney at Shulman & Hill to learn more. By consulting with one of our lawyers in Staten Island, you will have a better understanding of your legal options.

Staten Island Hearing and Vision Loss Cases: Potential Causes

There are many ways you could lose your hearing or vision in an accident. Potential causes of such injuries include–but are not limited to–the following:

Head Trauma

Head trauma is among the main causes of hearing loss and vision loss. It is relatively common for people involved in car accidents or falls from heights to suffer head injuries.

Staten Island Workplace Accidents

Many Staten Island residents are employed in jobs that put them at greater-than-average risk of losing their hearing or vision. Examples of workplace accidents include:

  • Welders losing vision as a result of exposure to UV radiation
  • Vision loss after being exposed to harsh chemicals without protective eyewear
  • Hearing or vision loss as a result of a machinery accident or a fall
  • Workers sustaining head trauma and related hearing loss in a work-related car accident
  • Ongoing exposure to loud noises without earplugs and other protective gear

Staten Island Hearing and Vision Loss Cases: The Aftermath of an Accident

Learning how to live with partial or complete hearing/vision loss can be very challenging. If you lose one of these senses, you may no longer be able to perform your regular job duties. This will naturally prevent you from earning a paycheck, which will make it difficult to pay any medical bills resulting from your accident.

In many circumstances, you may seek compensation for such losses. Contact the experts at our law firm in Staten Island to learn how to proceed.

How Our Staten Island Hearing and Vision Loss Law Firm Can Help

There are many reasons to consider meeting with a Staten Island hearing and vision loss lawyer if you have been injured. We can help in the following ways:

Determining Next Steps

If an accident deprives you of your hearing or vision, there are various factors that determine the options available to you for seeking compensation for your losses.

If you lost your hearing or vision in a work-related accident, you may seek compensation by filing a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. If you lost your hearing or vision in an accident that someone other than your direct employer contributed to, you might be able to pursue additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit.

Knowing how to proceed in these circumstances can be extremely complex if you are not familiar with the applicable laws, or do not have a relevant legal background. Our Staten Island hearing and vision loss attorneys can review your case and walk you through everything you need to know. We can determine whether you can seek compensation and if so, how best to proceed.

Investigating the Accident

Pursuing compensation for hearing or vision loss can be a lengthy process. Insurance companies may try to find reasons to justify denying your request for compensation.

Sometimes when injured workers file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits, the insurer tries to argue that the accident which caused their hearing or vision loss was not genuinely work-related. When filing a personal injury lawsuit, insurers may argue that you have not provided sufficient evidence showing an allegedly negligent party contributed to your accident.

You need strong evidence showing you are entitled to compensation for your losses. Our Staten Island hearing and vision loss lawyers are prepared to gather evidence by conducting a thorough investigation, including taking pictures of the accident scene, reviewing camera footage, talking with witnesses, and more.

Pursuing Compensation You May Be Entitled To

Our qualified hearing and vision loss attorneys are familiar with all of the relevant New York laws that may apply to your case. We know which types of losses you may be compensated for, and we understand how to pursue them.

A skilled legal professional will have experience negotiating with insurance companies and pushing back against low settlement offers. Our expertise and prior experience allow us to negotiate effectively for a fair settlement on your behalf. If a reasonable agreement is not possible, we are prepared to represent you in trial.

Handling the Claims Process

Seeking compensation for losses associated with your accident can involve a range of steps, such as submitting paperwork, negotiating with insurance adjusters, coordinating with doctors and other experts, and more. Our Staten Island hearing and vision loss attorneys can handle these tasks on your behalf, allowing you to focus on your recovery.
