The loss of one’s eyesight may devastate every aspect of their life. It will likely inhibit the victim’s work, their independence, and their interests. From the activities they enjoy to each responsibility, the sudden inability to see changes everything. That’s why we at the William D. Shapiro Law, Inc. aim to protect those who have suffered this type of injury.
Its unique cause for disability demands compensation for which we will fight on our client’s behalf. If you have endured an injury that resulted in the loss of your eyesight or hearing, you may be eligible for compensation. Eyesight loss will incur several expenses and emotional hardship. It is distinguished in its lasting impact upon every aspect of someone’s life. So, there are three particular categories in which an individual with eyesight loss can recover damages.
Available Compensation for Loss of Eyesight or Hearing
- Medical expenses. Someone who is found liable for a victim’s blindness or hearing loss will be responsible for all medical costs they face for the duration of their lifetime. These will cover all expenses pertaining to the victim’s rehabilitation and medical equipment. This may include home modifications and seeing eye service animals.
- Loss of income and anticipated wages. Most professions would be made impossible without eyesight or hearing. So, any person who suffers this sudden loss will no longer be able to participate in their chosen career. In response to their inability to earn an income as they once could, the victim can collect the difference of that which they would have made and that which they currently receive. This recovery includes their anticipated wages for the remainder of their career.
- Pain and suffering. Sudden onset blindness or hearing loss is inherently traumatizing. So many parts of life are enjoyed with sight from a beautiful view to the faces and conversations of loved ones. The loss of eyesight or hearing will undoubtedly affect the victim’s ability to enjoy life. That’s why pain and suffering compensation might be the largest aspect of this type of personal injury recovery.
