Injuries that Can Result in Hearing Loss

We tend to take it for granted, but the ability to hear what people are saying and sounds in our environment plays a crucial role in our ability to work and provide for ourselves. At Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd., our Illinois personal injury attorneys represent people who have suffered hearing loss as a result of accidents and injuries. We understand the dramatic impact this type of injury can have on every area of your life, and we fight to help you get the compensation you deserve. 

Common Causes of Injury-Related Hearing Loss

Hearing loss can be an inherited condition or one that is acquired due to an illness or chronic condition. It can also be the result of certain accidents and injuries, causing temporary or permanent damage. 

According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), injury-related hearing loss is often due to head trauma and exposure to loud noises. Noise-induced hearing loss may be painless, occurring over a gradual period of time, or it can happen suddenly as the result of explosions. Hearing loss related to head injuries usually happens immediately and can impact the victim in degrees, ranging from ringing in the ears to a total loss of hearing. 

At Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd., we represent clients who have suffered hearing loss as the result of the following types of accidents: 

  • On-the-job accidents;
  • Car, truck and motorcycle accidents;
  • Pedestrian and bicyclist accidents;
  • Slips, trips, and falls;
  • Being struck by or against an object. 

The Impact of Hearing Loss Injuries

When hearing loss does occur, our La Salle County personal injury attorneys understand the significant ramifications it can have on your life. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) reports that victims face both personal and professional impacts, which include: 

  • Inability to maintain balance;
  • Loss of communication and social interactions with friends and family members;
  • Increased risk for injuries due to a lack of external clues, such as being able to hear car horns or fire alarms;
  •  Inability to work or perform certain tasks on your job.
