Types of Ear Injuries Following a Motor Vehicle Accident


June 06, 2021

Most vehicle accident victims know that when they suffer physical injuries in a car accident, they should look into the possibility of compensation from the at-fault driver or insurance. However, many victims do not know that they can seek compensation for injuries to their ears that occurred during the vehicle accident.

Hearing is essential for many functions, from using your phone to understanding instructions at work and from socializing to simply maintaining your balance. Injuries to your ears are not something you want to ignore, and you might be entitled to a settlement or award due to ear injuries sustained in an accident.

Ear injuries from a car accident can vary in type. These kinds of hearing-loss related personal injuries might include:

  • Tinnitus
  • Hyperacusis
  • Hearing loss
  • Auditory issues
  • Balance issues
  • Pressure and pain in the ears and head

These injuries affect your physical health but can also affect your emotional and mental health. Many vehicle accident victims who have sustained ear injuries experience sleep disturbances and stress related to their inability to perform their usual activities. Some victims might lose their jobs or experience strains in their close relationships. Many victims will need physical treatment and counseling to deal with the other effects of their ear injuries. 

After suffering an ear injury in an auto accident, do not hesitate to seek treatment for your injuries and contact a car accident attorney near you. You need to make sure that your health is taken care of, and you deserve to have your claim evaluated for potential compensation.
