The Centers for Disease Control reports that hearing loss is one of the most common workplace injuries in the country, with approximately 22 million Americans being exposed to dangerous noise levels in their workplace. Vision loss and eye-related injuries are also common. Exposure to chemicals, faulty tools, or other hazardous conditions have led to temporary or permanent vision loss in nearly 20 percent of work-related injuries. Mr. Kadlec can help you file a workers' compensation claim. If your injury was the result of negligence or improper training from your employer, you may also have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.
We work with medical experts to calculate the extent of your losses and pursue the amount of compensation you truly deserve.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
When motor vehicle accidents occur, airbag deployment, head injury, or whiplash can lead to ringing in the ears or a total loss of hearing. Similarly, vision loss can occur as a result of a debris in the eyes or severe facial trauma. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, nearly 11,000 eye injuries occur as a result of car accidents every year.
Surgical errors, medication errors, and birth injuries can also lead to permanent vision and hearing loss. A medical malpractice lawyer can help you collect compensation for your injuries and hold your physician accountable for their actions.
