The Facts About Palm Springs Vision and Hearing Loss Injuries
The thought of losing your hearing and vision usually doesn’t come into play until an accident happens. Losing either of these senses, or both, will dramatically change how you go about your everyday life. To make matters worse, if the accident that caused your injuries was the result of someone else’s negligent actions, your emotions will likely run even higher. These accidents are typically easily avoided but still happened because the at-fault party didn’t care enough to ensure the safety of others around them.
Partial and full hearing and vision loss has been associated with loud noises in the workplace. This means that many employees who work in factories, warehouses, construction sites and other industries with constant loud noises could experience issues with their vision and hearing at some point in life. Our Palm Springs vision and hearing loss attorneys have dealt with cases involving the following causes:
- Noises from gunshots
- Motor vehicle crashes
- Improper or extensive use of a bluetooth device
- Unsafe working conditions
- Head trauma
- Defective machinery, tools, parts or equipment
- Insufficient safety procedures
There are plenty of other ways that you can suffer vision and hearing loss in the workplace. This list is just a sample of some of the cases our team has handled representing clients just like you in Palm Springs through the years.
