Vision and Hearing Injuries
Helping the injured file successful workers’ compensation claims
Work accidents that result in vision or hearing injuries can have a significant impact on workers. These injuries can affect their ability to do their jobs and also interfere with other areas of their lives. The Law Offices of Richard A. Jaffe, LLC fights for injured workers in Pennsylvania to help them get the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve.
These claims can be challenging, as it can be difficult to prove the vision or hearing injury was related to the job. Philadelphia workers’ compensation attorney Richard A. Jaffe knows how to build a strong case for benefits, including coverage of all medical expenses related to the injury and partial compensation for lost wages.
Injuries to vision can occur in different ways on the job. Eye damage can result from being hit by flying debris, accidentally being stabbed in the eye with a tool or another implement, prolonged exposure to bright light, blunt force trauma or chemical exposure. Depending on the injury, effects can range from migraines or blurred vision to blindness.
Injuries to hearing can also occur in different ways at the workplace. Hearing damage can result from exposure to extremely loud noise. This could be from a loud explosion, for example. Or from longtime exposure to machinery or engines. Hearing damage can also result from an accident in which an object punctures the eardrum.
