Workplace hearing loss or deafness changes your life. Get compensated.
If you suffered workplace hearing damage/deafness due to work, there could have been any number of causes; (loud machinery, power tools, scaffolding dropping, lumber falling, gas leak explosions, heavy equipment crashing or jackhammers, etc.). Maybe you may have experienced a sudden, high-decibel sound causing your eardrum(s) to rupture. Or, long-term ambient noises caused you to lose hearing over time (roaring machines, pneumatic nail guns, loud music, etc). Maybe your hearing loss was due to traumatic head injury at work.
Losing your eyesight is catastrophic and may compromise your income forever.
Workplace vision damage risks are also common, and can mean actual eye injury or an employee gradually losing sight. Workplace eye injury is often due to particles in the eye, eyeball laceration from a power tool or complete loss of vision due to chemical burn in the eyes. Constant exposure to bright lights, welding sparks, toxic fumes or smoke can cause long term blindness. Even eye strain from computer screens have caused debilitating migraines.
