Your vision and hearing are invaluable, and the complete or partial loss of either would be sure to have a considerable adverse impact on the rest of your life. When a work-related injury results in deafness or blindness, it can be devastating, not only for the victim, but for their family and loved ones too. Aside from the physical pain your injuries are likely to have caused, you may be unable to go back to the job you loved and worked hard to develop, a change which tends to result in significant emotional anguish and turmoil. An El Centro vision and hearing loss attorney from Hiden, Rott & Oertle understands that both the victim and their loved ones require compassion and support following such a traumatic experience, and pledge to provide this whilst simultaneously aggressively pursuing the compensation and damages you deserve.
Your vision or hearing loss may have been caused by a head injury, eye injury, or brain injury but, whatever the circumstances, our legal experts are ideally equipped to ensure you obtain the optimal outcome from your case.
What You Should Know About Vision and Hearing Loss
Losing your vision or hearing is a major trauma in anybody’s life, and can be worsened by the knowledge that the accident could have been avoidable but for the negligence or deliberate wrongdoing of another person or entity. Hearing loss has been associated with long-term exposure to loud noises in the workplace for quite some time now, however, this is far from being the only potential cause. While representing clients just like you who have lost their vision or hearing in workplace accidents, our lawyers have successfully handled cases relating to:
- The use of headsets in the workplace
- Bluetooth devices affected hearing when used extensively or improperly
- Gunshot noise
- Car, or other vehicle, accidents
- Unsafe working environment
- Insufficient safety measures implemented by your employer
- Defective tools, machinery, or other products or components
- Head trauma
There are countless ways in which you may have fully or partially lost your hearing or eyesight, only some of which are listed above. You can be confident that our 50 years of personal injury and workplace injury experience enables a Hiden, Rott & Oertle El Centro vision and hearing loss attorney to expertly and successfully handle your case.
