Safety Equipment Failure Or Lack Of Safety Equipment
Construction workers and other types of employees are often required to wear certain types of protective equipment, such as goggles and earplugs, in order to ensure their safety. However, if there is a failure in that safety equipment or safety equipment is not provided to the workers, injuries involving the eyes and ears can occur.
Machinery and power tools that are used on construction sites, in factories and in other job settings can be extremely loud and cause a great deal of hearing damage. Whether your hearing was lost over time due to consistent loud noises at your workplace or it was lost in a sudden accident or blast of noise, we can help.
Blindness And Loss Of Vision
Any part of the eye that becomes injured in a workplace accident or gradually deteriorates can result in various levels of blindness. Whether an object struck, punctured or lacerated your eye, or your eyes were consistently exposed to bright lights, workers’ compensation benefits may be available to you.
