Helping Workers After The Loss Of Hearing Or Vision 

We all rely on our senses, including vision and hearing, on a daily basis. When one of these is taken away, it can have a drastic impact on the rest of our lives.

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.

Hearing Loss

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.

Client Testimonials

Mark was very knowledgeable and kept me informed with my case. He wasn’t intimidated with the large law firm. I know for a fact that without his expertise and diligent work ethic my settlement wouldn’t have reached the amount it did. He worked far beyond what I expected, meeting with the company doctor, therapist, and insurance representatives. HAVE A TALK WITH HIM ITS FREE!!!!!

Mark takes the time to get to know you as a person, not just as a case. He’s an attorney you can trust to keep you informed on every aspect of the case. I received all info about the case as soon as he did, and Mark carefully answered every question that I asked. I would recommend Mark to anyone who is in need of an honest attorney.

When my adjuster refused to pay for lost wages and for prescriptions, I felt the need to hire an attorney. After a brief consultation, I hired Mark. Within days, I saw results in my case. Everything that happened in my case went exactly as he told me it would happen in our initial consultation. When we went to the hearing, it seemed very one-sided and we won “hands down.” From start to finish, my case lasted less than nine months. My lost wages were recovered, and a sizeable settlement as well. Kudos Mark.

Mark explained, in detail, how the law would apply to my case and assured me it would take some time for me to accomplish my goal. During my case Mark and his staff kept my wife and me informed and updated. Every time my wife or I called Mark’s office we were able to get a response from either him or his staff. When we settled my case, it was more than I ever expected. Mark and his staff were professional in handling my claim. My experience with Mark and his office was wonderful!
