Many of us don’t think about how important our sense of hearing is until something happens to it. Whether it’s due to a car accident, a work-related injury, or complications from an ENT procedure, hearing loss can be traumatic and life-changing for anybody.
Not only do we use our hearing to figure out our environment, the bones in your ear also help you control balance. Damage to the eardrum or certain parts of the inner ear can lead to chronic dizziness and even vertigo.
If you’ve suffered deafness or permanent hearing loss as the result of an injury that wasn’t your fault, you have every right to seek compensation for your damages from those responsible. The Dallas personal injury lawyers at Rasansky Law Firm have considerable experience with such cases, and we’re happy to discuss your case — free of charge — either over the phone, by email, or in person.
We work on a contingency fee basis, meaning that we won’t charge you a cent unless (and until) we win your case and put money in your pocket. Call us right now at (214) 651-6100 for a free consultation.
Noise-induced hearing loss can be sudden or gradual. For example, if a defective Takata airbag explodes instead of properly inflating, the resulting pressure wave can fractures the bones found in your inner ear or rupture your ear drums. This kind of hearing loss is sudden, and it can take anyone by surprise.
If you work in an unreasonably-loud environment without ear protection, however, you may experience issues such as tinnitus, which may give way to gradual hearing loss over a number of years.
There are several types of injuries which can result in permanent hearing loss, such as:
Tinnitus — This is the observation of a high-pitched tone or constant ringing that does not actually exist. This usually occurs due to stereocilia damage. Stereocilia refers to microscopic hairs that are found within one’s ear, which vibrate in response to sound waves. When these are damaged, noises are perceived as a high-pitched note at all times, whether or not any sound actually exists.
Partial hearing loss — This refers to a type of hearing loss that is either intermittent, affects only one ear, or otherwise measurably reduces your ability to hear. In rare cases, partial hearing loss may resolve after some time on its own, or it may require surgery to fix an inner ear structure that has weakened or deteriorated due to the injury.
Total deafness — This refers to the total lack of hearing ability in either one or both ears. People who have suffered total deafness due to some kind of injury will not be able to perceive sound, but they may be able to perceive vibrations. These individuals have to contend with sensory deprivation, and save for rare cases, will have to live with total deafness for the rest of their lives.
Not only does hearing loss cause social issues, embarrassment, and hinders communication, it can also limit your ability to earn a living. If your hearing loss prevents you from being able to return to work in your chosen career field, you may even have a valid claim for a diminished earning capacity.
Hearing loss can also lead to anxiety, relationship issues, and even depression. You may have to undergo surgery, corticosteroid drug therapy, or rely on hearing aids for the rest of your life. All of these things cost a lot of money; money you shouldn’t have to shell out if someone else’s negligence or actions led to your injury.
Not only do you deserve to be compensated for your medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, you deserve to be compensated for all of your related losses and future expenses.
