Uncovering The Causes Of Vision And Hearing Loss
Was your sensory impairment caused by a work-related activity? Sometimes the causes of vision and hearing loss are difficult to pinpoint, but in other cases they are obvious.
Hearing loss, as well as tinnitus (ringing in the ears), can develop over years of exposure to loud noises. It can also result from a single accident, such as a loud explosion or sudden fluctuation in air pressure.
Vision loss can result from many causes, including direct damage to the eye, bright flashes and prolonged exposure to bright lights, such as welding equipment.
Serious head injuries can also cause both hearing and vision loss. Whatever the cause of the injury, the damage may be temporary or permanent. You may be out of work for a long time, so it is important to talk to an attorney who can help you obtain maximum compensation for your claim.
