Hearing loss that is not caused by aging is usually the result of an injury to the head, prolonged exposure to noise, or sudden exposure to extremely loud noise. Regardless of how it occurred, hearing loss can have serious and often permanent consequences that can make it difficult for a person to complete daily tasks or secure employment. For this reason, it is especially important for those who have suffered hearing loss in an accident or at work to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney who is well-versed in state law and can help them seek compensation for their losses.
The structures that make up the ear are fragile and can be injured by any one of a variety of different forces, including:
These types of traumatic experiences can cause one of the following three main types of hearing loss:
All three of these types of hearing loss can result in serious auditory symptoms, such as:
In some cases, these problems can be addressed through surgical intervention or taking certain medications. Unfortunately, these methods are not always successful, in which case a victim may face permanent injury. In these cases, it is critical for the injured party to speak with a personal injury or workers’ compensation lawyer who can help ensure that they receive compensation for their losses.
If you were involved in a car crash or another type of accident and suffer hearing loss as a result, you may be eligible to collect compensation. Fortunately, those who suffer from hearing loss as a result of their working conditions may also be able to collect workers’ compensation benefits to cover medical bills, wage replacement, and vocational training. We understand how frightening these types of serious injuries can be and are dedicated to helping our clients through every step of their case, so if you were injured in an accident, please contact Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC to speak with an experienced attorney about your own case.
