Causes of Vision and Hearing Injuries
Vision loss and deafness can be caused by negligent acts that include:
- Workplace accidents such as explosions
- Medical malpractice such as failure to diagnose a brain tumor or other medical conditions
- Head injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents
- Chemical exposure
- Injuries to the eyes
Blindness or hearing loss forces an individual to learn new ways to function in the world. He or she will need to use equipment such as sticks, reading machines and hearing aids or learn how to use sign language and read lips. Our law firm helps clients obtain the resources they need to acquire these new skills.
