Blindness and Deafness

Catastrophic vision and hearing loss injuries significantly impact the injured person, their families, and their finances. Many patients who sustained catastrophic injuries that caused blindness or deafness are faced with life-long pain, suffering, home modifications, medical expenses, and treatments. One day they were undergoing their normal routine and then within a split second, their lives were forever changed because of medical malpractice or an injury caused by someone else’s negligence.
