Queens Hearing and Vision Loss Lawyer

It can be easy to take your hearing and vision for granted if you have lived most of your life without any significant issues. However, when you suddenly suffer partial or total hearing or vision loss, it can significantly alter your lifestyle and quality of life.

While it is common for hearing and vision to deteriorate over time as we get older, injuries can cause premature hearing and vision loss. If you were involved in an accident in Queens that occurred at work or was caused by another party and you suffered hearing or vision loss as a result, you may be entitled to compensation.

If you or a loved one in the Queens area suffered hearing and/or vision loss resulting from an accident, contact Shulman & Hill to learn more about your options for potential financial compensation. One of our hearing and vision loss attorneys in Queens can review your case for free. If we find you may be entitled to compensation, we can offer the aggressive representation you need to help collect what you are potentially entitled to.

Queens Hearing and Vision Loss Cases: Potential Causes

There are numerous potential causes of hearing and/or vision loss. They include, but are not limited to, the following:

Motor Vehicle Accidents

It is common for those involved in motor vehicle accidents to sustain some degree of head trauma. Head injuries are a frequent cause of hearing and vision loss. In addition to striking your head during a motor vehicle accident, a defective airbag may also spray shrapnel and damage your eyes.

Workplace Accidents

Various types of workplace accidents are often the cause of hearing and vision loss cases in Queens. For instance, welders are at a high risk of welders flash: a common corneal flash burn caused by exposure to UV light.

Those who work in construction and similar industries are also at a greater-than-average risk of losing these senses as a result of on-the-job accidents. In construction, items falling from heights may strike workers, causing significant head trauma. Construction workers and anyone else who works with noisy machinery may also suffer hearing damage if they are not provided with safety ear muffs.

Chemicals can also pose a risk for vision loss if a worker handles dangerous substances without wearing protective eyewear and the chemical gets in their eyes.

Queens Hearing and Vision Loss Cases: Potential Consequences

Losing your hearing and/or vision will likely have a significant impact on your life. This is true even if you only lose these senses partially.

You may incur substantial medical bills for both immediate and ongoing treatment. There is a chance you will not be able to return to work, resulting in lost wages and making it difficult to earn a paycheck. Once you return to work, your earning potential may be reduced if you are no longer to perform the same tasks you once did. This may make it even more difficult to pay unexpected medical bills.

You may be entitled to compensation for such losses if another party caused the accident that resulted in your vision or hearing loss or if you were injured while you were working. To optimize your chances of collecting what you may be entitled to, enlist the help of our Queens personal injury law firm. We can help you pursue compensation while you focus on recovery.

How Our Queens Hearing and Vision Loss Law Firm Can Help You

Knowing how to proceed when seeking compensation for hearing or vision loss can be difficult without prior experience or legal background. Shulman & Hill will make the process easier for you by helping in the following key ways:

Determining Who May Be Responsible for Compensating You

The way in which you seek potential compensation for your losses will depend on the nature of the accident that caused them. If you sustained hearing or vision loss as a result of a work-related accident, you may seek compensation by filing a workers’ compensation claim.

If the accident that caused you to lose your vision or hearing occurred because of another party’s negligence, such as a distracted driver or a general contractor who failed to provide you with adequate safety equipment, you may be able to hold them financially accountable by filing a personal injury lawsuit.

Our Queens hearing and vision loss lawyers can thoroughly investigate your accident. We can help identify who may be liable, and collect evidence that shows why you may be entitled to compensation.

Handling Administrative Tasks

Your focus should be on recovering and adjusting to your new life after losing your hearing or vision. You do not need the burden of handling the various tasks involved in seeking potential compensation yourself.

We can handle such tasks for you, including:

  • Reviewing your losses to help you pursue fair compensation
  • Filing a workers’ compensation claim and/or a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf
  • Handling all correspondence with insurance companies, doctors, and any other relevant parties
  • Collecting and presenting all necessary evidence


No matter who may be responsible for compensating you, their insurers or lawyers will likely try to convince you to accept a lower settlement offer if you work with them directly.

This is one of the main reasons we suggest you seek representation through a hearing and vision loss law firm in the Queens area. Our experts are prepared to negotiate on your behalf for fair compensation. If we are unable to reach an appropriate settlement, we are prepared to pursue a favorable jury verdict.
