Vision & Hearing Injury Attorneys in Kansas City
Serving Injured Clients in Missouri & Kansas
Losing vision or becoming deaf is a life-altering experience. The impact on people’s lives is profound and forever changes their ability to work and enjoy formerly important activities. It affects the victim’s family as well, requiring spouses or siblings to provide care and supervision that would have been unnecessary absent the accident that caused the blindness or hearing loss.
Here at Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., our Kansas City personal injury attorneys assist clients who have experienced the catastrophic changes caused by vision loss or deafness. We help them obtain financial awards that allow them and their families to adjust to their new circumstances. Our team builds strong cases that identify the negligence that caused the injury and works with a variety of experts and specialists to document the consequences of the injury on a client’s life.
Causes of Vision & 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.
