Workplace accidents can have varying results. Some injuries allow for full recoveries, while others leave accident victims with lifelong disabilities, mostly in construction sites where workers are commonly hurt. Vision loss is one such injury.
Our construction accident attorneys in NYC have decades of experience helping injured workers seek fair compensation. During a discussion with one of our lawyers, you can find out if the circumstances surrounding your vision loss make you eligible to file a third-party personal injury claim.
When Third-Party Claims Are Possible After Vision Loss
If you suffered vision loss in an on-the-job accident in New York state, it might be possible for you to file a third-party claim that will provide more financial benefits than workers’ compensation alone. You can only file this type of claim when you can prove that a negligent third party is responsible for the injury you suffered.
Accidents that result in vision loss are often the result of the failure of personal protective equipment (PPE). When that is the case, filing a claim against the manufacturer of the PPE is often possible. However, faulty PPE is not the only source of accidents resulting in vision loss. If you would like to learn more about your legal options when third-party negligence caused vision loss, discuss your situation with the attorneys at Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C.
