Catastrophic injury

Injuries to Your Senses Deserve Compensation

When an accident results in an injury to the spinal cord or the brain, it can result in sensory loss. Since the spinal cord is responsible for transmitting messages to and from the brain, when it is injured, signals from the brain to the sensory organs can be interrupted. The result may range from blindness and deafness to loss of mobility or deprivation of the sense of taste or smell.

In some cases, the sensory loss is temporary, but in many others, it becomes permanent. If so, it causes numerous issues for the person who suffers it. Dealing with sensory loss may require extensive medical care and countless hours of physical therapy.  Despite the best efforts of the therapists and medical team, the result may still be a disability that stays with you for the rest of your life. This makes many things you used to do before the accident impossible to perform. If your sensory loss is due to the carelessness or negligence of someone else, your sensory loss lawyer from Goldstein & Goldstein wants to help you fight to get fair compensation for your loss. Give us a call today.

Common Accidents That Cause Sensory Loss

Many different types of accidents may result in sensory loss. Among the most common accident types that lead to these injuries you may find:

  • Vehicle accidents, including cars and trucks
  • Accidents in the workplace
  • Boating accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Head-on impact
  • Falling objects

How Different Types of Sensory Loss Affect You

Vision

Suffering an injury to the eyes can result in different degrees of vision loss. The accident may cause a penetrating injury that may damage the eye forever, while trauma may cause temporary vision loss. Also, a blunt force trauma may destroy the eye and prevent any possibility of ever fixing it. 

Hearing

Hearing loss due to an accident can range from a partial inability to hear all or some of the sound frequencies to full deafness. Trauma causes unilateral hearing loss in many cases. Head or neck injuries may result in tinnitus or a ringing of the ear that disrupts the possibility of hearing clearly and understanding what is being said. Other conditions associated with trauma to the ears are vertigo or dizziness, making even the most basic everyday activities impossible to carry out.

Loss of Smell

Loss of smell is also known as anosmia and is often the result of significant trauma to the brain. When the nasal passages get damaged in an accident, the ability to taste is affected. If someone is unable to smell, they will be unable to detect if a certain food item is rotten. They will also be at risk by not being able to smell a gas leak, for example.

The psychological impact of any of these sensory losses can lead to depression and loss of interest in activities that used to provide pleasure before the accident.
