Connecticut Sensory Loss Attorneys

Motor vehicle collisions take the lives on 1.3 million people worldwide each and every year. With an associated 20 to 50 million injuries, traffic collisions affect people in every city, state, and country across the globe. In the United States alone, millions of people are injured annually due to some kind of auto accident or personal injury.

The global scope of personal injury sheds light on the many dangers associated with traveling on any roadways and highways. In a national overview, the United States accounts for a large majority of the car crash accidents, especially when injury statistics are compared to other counties in the world. American motorists must understand the dangers present when traveling on highly trafficked streets in their respective cities.

Unfortunately, Connecticut ranks poorly in auto accident injury frequency when compared to other states in the U.S. In 2010 alone, 319 fatalities occurred in Connecticut due to some kind of motor vehicle collision. Sensory loss is one of the most frightening of injuries associated with traffic crashes.

Sensory loss is generally connected to serious injuries in both car accidents and general personal injury situations. This impairment has far-reaching effects for the injured party and their loved ones. Unfortunately, many people believe that sensory loss indicates the inability to feel pain. However, those who have suffered personal injuries that result in sensory loss typically feel quite a bit of pain following an accident.

Accidents Associated with Sensory Loss

In the year from 2009 to 2010, Connecticut sustained a 42 percent increase in the number of motor vehicle related fatalities. With speeding as a large contributing factor to these traffic deaths, sensory loss is often associated with high impact accidents. As the speed of the driver increases as does the potential severity of the accident.

The following collisions are commonly connected to sensory loss:

  • Bicycle Injuries (usually in situations where a helmet is not worn)
  • Bike vs. Car Crashes
  • Head On Collisions
  • High Speed Accidents
  • Rollover Accidents

When an accident victim experiences sensory loss from any of these particular traffic crashes, compensation is usually available. The negligent party who cause the accident typically must pay for any associated medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages. In addition, any physical therapy and rehabilitation is commonly paid by the at-fault driver.

If you or a loved one has sustained sensory loss following a motor vehicle crash, a CT personal injury attorney is prepared to take on your case today.

Types of Sensory Loss

Neural messages are what the body’s nervous system uses to interpret outside stimulation into a language that the brain can understand. Utilizing these neural messages, the body is able to respond to what is happening around it through what the internal organs sense. When a serious accident occurs, any damage to these organs can cause the brain to fail to convert neural messages. In these situations, sensory loss is a common outcome for the injured party.

For the most part, sensory loss is referred to in the following capacity:

Loss of Hearing

Communication in any country in the world is usually harnessed by the ability to hear what another person is saying. As the most direct form of communication, an inability to hear can greatly hinder a person’s daily living. Catastrophic injuries that following from a traffic crash sometimes cause victims to lose their ability to hear. Compensation is generally awarded to victims who suffer from loss of hearing, regardless of the severity.

Loss of Eyesight

Connecticut residents use their eyes to interpret colors, images, and motions around them. When a catastrophic accident occurs and injuries are severe, a loss of eyesight in the accident victim is one of the potential outcomes of the crash. Connecticut drivers who experience loss of eyesight following a collision, whether partial or total blindness, are likely entitled to financial compensation.

Dual Sensory Loss

While less common, severe catastrophic injuries after an accident sometimes cause the accident victim to lose their ability to both hear and see. Commonly referred to as deaf blindness, accident victims who suffer from dual sensory loss must deal with new challenges and road blocks in their daily living. Dual sensory loss greatly affects a person’s ability to communicate, move, or access information normally.
