Fort Lauderdale Job Related Blindness or Sight Impairedness
Are you experiencing a loss of sight, blurriness, or irritation to your eyes? It’s possible you could be suffering from a serious injury to your eyes. Sight impairedness or job related blindness is a severe injury that significantly impacts your life, and could result in long-lasting or lifelong sight problems.
The loss of your sight, as related to your job, can slowly happen after being surrounded by bright lights, or when exposed to a sudden or accidental injury to the head or eye. The sudden demise of your eyesight can occur after being subject to a serious workplace incident like an explosion. If you believe you have suffered blindness due to your work conditions or from a work-related incident, then it’s important to act quickly to ensure you don’t forfeit your rights to workers’ compensation benefits. Contact the experienced personal injury attorney and workers’ compensation attorneys at Morales & Cerino to help you get the immediate medical and financial benefits you deserve.
