Common Eyesight Injuries that Happen On the Job

Loss of an eye, partial, or full blindness are considered to be a catastrophic work injury. Damage to the eye is not only traumatic, but can change a person’s life forever. These types of injuries can be caused from gradual exposure to welding sparks, toxic chemicals, smoke, lights, fumes, etc.

They can also occur from an unexpected incident due to the aforementioned, flying or falling debris, swinging objects that come into contact with the eye, dust or particles in the air, and so forth. A Reston, VA workers compensation lawyer will inform you that regardless of what happened, if you suffered an eye injury while working you may be entitled to workers compensation.

Seek Medical Attention Immediately

After you have been injured on the job, it is crucial you seek medical attention. If you have time you may want to take pictures of the scene. If not, ask a friend or fellow employer to take pictures for you. As soon as possible, tell your employer about what happened. You may also want to get the contact details of witnesses. Be sure to tell your doctor about any other pain or injury in another part of your body. If a serious eye related injury resulted, you should consult a Reston, VA workers compensation lawyer to explore your options.

Workers compensation  may be available to people who:

  • Are partially blind
  • Completely blind
  • Have blurred vision

If you are considered to be legally blind, a lawsuit or separate claim may also be pursued. Legally blind is a broad term and does not necessarily mean that the individual has no vision ability. Whatever your case, a workers compensation lawyer can provide you with legal advice about the process.

Common Hearing Injuries

Hearing loss can occur gradually or abruptly. By law, employers must follow safety protocols to reduce the risk of hearing injuries. However, approximately 23,000 people suffer hearing loss in the U.S. every year. Hearing loss can be caused by:

  • High decibel noise
  • Loud machinery
  • Loud ambient noise
  • Sudden explosion
  • Power tools
  • Other loud noises

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
