Hearing or Vision Loss
Hearing and vision loss are big influences on the way that you can go about your daily life. Here we have explained some details about each hearing and vision loss, the long-term effects they can have on you as well as the impact on your quality of life. We don’t believe any loss of your senses is something you should have to live with without compensation if another party is at fault for your loss.
Hearing loss or hearing impairment can be caused by a range of factors such to overexposure to loud noises, chemical exposure and physical trauma amongst other things. Hearing impairment can happen in either one or both of your ears and is a result of damage to either the dear drum, ear canal or middle ear. This can impact the ability to comprehend speech both in others and yourself. It can result in feelings of isolation due to the ability to effectively communicate being lost. This is a significant loss in a person’s life which we are here to seek adequate compensation for.
Vision loss is classified as loss of sight that cannot be corrected to a normal level using seeing glasses. There are several events that can lead to vision loss such as chemicals, accidents and overexposure to sun or bright lights. It is always recommended that personal protective equipment is used whilst working, but you may suffer from vision loss even with these preventative measures in place. Our team of highly trained professionals at Workers Compensation & Personal Injury Attorney Victorville, CA can help you obtain compensation for your loss.
