Coverage For Scarring, Hearing And Vision Loss
Some workplace injuries or illnesses cause loss, but you can still work so they do not fall into traditional disability categories. For example, on some job sites, hearing loss may occur over time. A worker would still be able to work, but would have partial deafness that may require a hearing aid and would affect the worker’s quality of life.
A section of the workers’ compensation statutes provides for specific losses. Attorney Cullen has helped workers receive workers’ compensation benefits for specific losses. Contact our Bristol law firm if you have suffered a personal loss at work for any of the following types of scenarios:
- Loss of vision — blindness is included, as well as reduced or blurry vision
- Loss of hearing — deafness is included, as well as partial hearing loss
- Disfigurement — includes dental deformities from broken teeth, broken nose and other mutilations or visual defects
- Amputations — includes fingers, toes, legs, arms and partial amputations
- Scarring — includes facial scarring, any scar above the collar line, and including Keloidal scarring
Cullen Legal is a Bristol law firm that handles the full range of injured workers’ issues, from unemployment compensation to filing workers’ compensation claims and litigating denied claims, to filing Social Security Disability claims and handling appeals.
