What type of accidents can result in blindness?

When a person has suffered vision loss, whether complete or partial, their lives can be impacted dramatically. Vision loss can mean the victim will be unable to drive or be able to do certain everyday living activities for themselves. It can also take a victim who has suffered blindness some time to not only learn how to get around and do things for themselves but also learn how to protect themselves from injury because they can no longer see. Some of the more common negligent accidents which can cause blindness includes:

  •       Chemical exposure that injures the eye because of lack of safety gear available on work site
  •       Medical negligence
  •       Pharmaceutical negligence
  •       Trajectories that hit and enter the eye in a work accident or vehicle accident
  •       Traumatic brain injury caused by a slip and fall incident, work injury, or vehicle accident

What types of accidents can result in hearing loss?

 A Charlottesville VA personal injury lawyer understands that whether it is a partial loss or complete loss, any loss of hearing has a significant impact on an individual’s ability to communicate and interact with others. Victims who have suffered a total loss of hearing may need to learn another way to communicate with people, such as sign language and reading people’s lips. They may also need to learn different ways to protect themselves from danger because the can no longer hear sounds or noises that serve as warnings. This is true even if the loss is only a partial one.

Just like loss of vision, there are factors that can cause loss of hearing that have nothing to do with negligence, like age or genetics. But there are also many accidents that cause that loss that are preventable, except for the negligence of another person. These include:

  •       Infections or tumors that a doctor failed to diagnose
  •       Injury that happens on the job because an employer did not provide the worker with safety gear
  •       Inner ear bone damage from a slip and fall accident, work injury, or vehicle accident.
  •       Trajectories that damage the victim’s inner ear during a work accident or vehicle accident
  •       Traumatic brain injury from a slip and fall accident, work injury, or vehicle accident
