Hearing Loss as a Result of Hitting One’s Head

We have all heard that with age many people start losing their hearing power. This kind of deterioration is well anticipated as it occurs gradually. However, if you have suffered a head injury that results in hearing loss, you must be devastated. In such situations, many of us are ill-equipped to handle the impact it has on our health, finances, and our complete life ahead. 

Deafness affects almost every part of your life. You are unable to interact with family, friends, or co-workers. Accomplishing daily chores becomes extremely difficult. Sudden loss of hearing can occur due to many reasons and a few of those reasons could be due to a head injury at work or in a road accident. If you have lost your power to hear due to the negligence of another person, then you need to contact an experienced personal injury attorney who will thoroughly study your case and then help you receive the compensation that you deserve for your loss and which you are entitled.  

What could cause you a hearing loss?

Accident in a Motor Vehicle

Motor vehicle collisions can impact your hearing in many ways. If you or someone you know has experienced a blunt force blow to the head, it may have caused a traumatic brain injury which can lead to loss of hearing. A blow to the head can cause bleeding & infection of the ear and the ear canal which can make you lose your hearing temporarily. Such kind of trauma can also injure the cochlea, leading to permanent hearing loss.  In case of such an incident, you can get in touch with a traumatic brain injury lawyer who will then make all the efforts to get you justice and compensation. 

Accident in a workplace

Workplace hearing loss incidences due to head injuries have become very common nowadays. There are certain jobs that lend themselves more easily to such accidents. A slip, fall or a heavy machine falling can cause head injury which in turn can lead to ossicle dislocation resulting in loss of hearing. It can also damage the nerves of the cochlea or rupture the eardrum.  Despite many rules and regulations for the safety of the employees, loss of hearing due to workplace conditions is heard often. 

Some Symptoms of Damage to the Ear include:-

  • Pain or itching in the ear
  • Ringing or buzzing sound in the ear
  • Fluid or pus leaking from the ear
  • Vertigo

The ear is a very delicate structure and even a small amount of damage can majorly impact the quality of your life. In many cases the medical intervention is not always successful in treating the ear, if at all there is a cure for hearing damage, it is sure to burn a huge hole in your pocket. 

        How to Pursue Damages?

If you have met with an accident that has caused you to lose your hearing ability, you will incur significant medical expenses from the treatment that will work to cure the damage and the assistive technology. With the assistance of a personal injury lawyer, you will be able to hold the person whose negligence has resulted in your injury legally accountable. A claim to recover your past and future medical expenses can also be filed. The personal injury lawsuit may also help you to receive compensation for the wages that you have lost, as well as for the loss of your future earning capacity. Deafness causes physical, emotional and psychological pain & damage. Therefore, you can also sue for the suffering and pain.
