Claiming Workers’ Compensation After Vision Loss

Claiming Workers’ Compensation After Vision Loss

Being involved in an accident at work could lead to injuries that affect you for the rest of your life. Vision loss can sadly be an extremely pervasive injury that affects all aspects of an injured person’s life, including the ability to earn an income. Your workers’ compensation payout should, therefore, reflect the financial toll that this has taken on your life.

It’s important that you do not waste time in notifying your employer of your injury, and that you take action to make your claim within the given timeframe. The following are some of the types of damages you may be able to claim as a result of losing your sight in a work injury.

Medical damages

Gaining medical attention can be costly, especially if you need to go through eye surgery or get specialized prescription glasses. Workers’ compensation should cover all medical expenses that relate to your work injury.

Lost wages

Time taken off work to recover from your injury will result in a loss of wages. While you will not be compensated in full for this time spent away from the workplace, you will be entitled to claim back a portion of the wages you lost.

Rehabilitation

You may no longer be able to continue working in your position because of the damage to your sight. Workers’ compensation insurance can provide financial help and assistance with retraining for another career for those who are affected by the loss of their job due to an injury.

Workers’ compensation is available to the majority of injured employees in the United States. Therefore you should understand your rights and ensure that you get the compensation that you deserve.
