Accidents Resulting In Hearing Loss

The Hearing Loss of Association of America (HLAA) advises that hearing loss can occur as the result of medical conditions and illnesses, as well as from accidental injuries that cause damage to the inner ear. This can be caused by loud noises, sustained decibel levels, damage to the eardrum or inner ear, and head injuries. Common types of accidents in which hearing loss can occur include the following:

  • Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Being struck by or against an object
  • Sports and recreational injuries
  • On-the-job accidents

Getting The Compensation You Deserve for Your Injuries

HEARNet Online advises that hearing loss can be conductive, meaning that it stems from damage to the inner ear, eardrum, or damage to the bones in the middle ear, or it may be nerve-related, resulting from damage to the cochlear or auditory nerves. In some cases, it is a combination of these causes. Treatments may involve medications, surgical procedures, and the use of implants or hearing aids. Treatment can be expensive and even in best-case scenarios, victims are likely to face long term impacts.

In situations where the reckless actions of others are responsible for your hearing loss, you may be entitled to damages through a personal injury claim in Illinois. Compensation available may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Compensation for pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages, which is compensation meant to punish at-fault parties for conduct that was particularly reckless
