Atlanta Hearing and Vision Loss Attorney

Most of us rely on our senses such as hearing and sight on a daily basis. When one of your vital senses is taken away from you it can have a drastic impact on your life. If you or a loved one has experienced a loss of your hearing or vision because of a work- related accident, you could be entitled to Georgia workers’ compensation benefits.

To make sure you file for any workers’ compensation benefits correctly, please contact the Georgia workers’ compensation lawyers at the Gearhart Law Group. Our legal team understands how job-related injuries can impact your life.

What About the Failure of or Lack of Safety Equipment?

Depending on what type of job you have in Georgia, you may be required to wear safety equipment such as earplugs or goggles. However, if that safety equipment fails in some way, is defective in some way, or isn’t provided to you, it’s possible you could suffer injuries to your eyes and ears.

What About Hearing Loss?

Your Georgia must comply with federal noise level guidelines which are in place to protect you and your co-workers hearing. These guidelines say that the noise level in your place of work should be at level 85 dBA or lower for eight hours. Any 3dBA increase above this level, your exposure must be cut in half.

However, many employers violate these guidelines, which may not be intentional on the part of your employer, but nonetheless, can damage your hearing.

Power tools and different types of machinery are used on construction sites, in factories, and other job sites and can be quite loud and cause a lot of hearing damage. If your hearing loss occurred over time due to the loud noises at your place of work, or whether it happened in a sudden accident or noise, we can help you.

What About Loss of Vision and/or Blindness?

If any part of your eye becomes injured or damaged at your place of work in Georgia, or whether your site gradually deteriorates can cause you various levels of blindness. Whether you were hit in the eye by an object, or your eye was punctured or lacerated, or your eyes were exposed to bright lights on a consistent basis, workers’ compensation benefits may be available to you.

Workplace injuries are the leading cause of eye injuries in the United States. This can lead to you becoming blind or suffer drastic vision loss. Potential eye injuries at your Georgia workplace can include:

1. Exposure to Chemicals

2. Debris that enters your eye such as glass or metal

3. Light and/or Radiation Exposure

4. Dust Particles

5. Swinging Objects

Eye injuries can happen to any worker at any time, however those jobs with the greatest risk include plumbers, mechanics, carpenters, repair personnel, and craft workers.

Georgia Workers’ Compensation Benefits for Vision and Hearing Loss

If your workplace injury impacted your vision or hearing you may have the right to Georgia’s workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation is normally the exclusive remedy for you if you are injured while on the job.

Depending on the circumstances of your individual injuries, you may be able to file a third party claim for personal injury that is responsible for your hearing or vision loss. Please contact the workers’ compensation lawyers at the Gearhart Law Group in Georgia.

We off you a free consultation and evaluate your individual circumstances. We have the knowledge, experience, and skill to treat your case in an understanding and professional manner to ensure you receive all the Georgia workers’ compensation benefits you may be entitled to.

It turned out to be the best decision I have made in a long, long time.

I got injured at work. Trying to deal with the insurance company became overwhelming mainly because I needed surgery and they would not respond to my calls or emails. I researched local attorneys and decided to choose Gearhart Law Group mainly because it was smaller, I liked the information I read and I felt I might get more individual attention. It turned out to be the best decision I have made in a long, long time. Beth Gearhart made me feel as though I were her only client. She responded to my emails immediately, every time. She explained the whole process from the beginning and everything unfolded exactly as she explained it would. The process took time but I received the surgery I needed and in the end was very surprised by the large financial settlement I received due to Ms. Gearhart’s expertise. I highly recommend Gearhart Law Group.
