Does workers' compensation cover loss of eyesight?

Every year, numerous workers in Maryland and across the country suffer injuries while on the job. Some injuries can lead to permanent disability if you happen to lose your eyesight. While this may not happen often, it does happen, and those who have lost their eyesight due to a work injury are left trying to rebuild their lives. Thankfully, workers' compensation benefits should be there to help them with that.

Here is the thing with workers' compensation benefits, though, you would think it is easy to file a claim and get the physical and financial care you need. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. There is a process that needs to be followed to the letter, and even if you do everything right, your insurance provider may deny full coverage.

When it comes to eyesight loss, whether full or partial, you would think it would be easy to link to a work accident or exposure to toxic substances in the workplace. Unfortunately, if there is any doubt about the cause of the injury, benefits may be withheld. At the end of the day, your workers' comp provider is looking out for his or her bottom line, not you.

Eyesight loss is a big deal. It will change your life forever. It will affect your ability to return to work and provide for your family now and in the future. An experienced Maryland-based workers' compensation attorney may be able to help you receive maximum relief for your losses, including disability payments, which could definitely help you and your family as you try to move forward.
