What Causes Ear Injuries in Coral Springs?
Ear injuries can occur during car crashes, in workplace settings, during sports, and in many other situations. Common causes of ear injury include:
- Ongoing exposure to loud noise
- Sudden loud noises
- Injuries to the head
- Injuries to the ear drum or interior part of the ear
Exposure to loud noises can occur in a workplace, for example, when employees are not protected from noise and not given the correct safety equipment. Over time, this exposure can cause injury to the inside of the ear, which can lead to hearing loss. Even a sudden, loud sound can cause hearing loss or tinnitus, a ringing in the ear.
Impact with the ear is another common cause of injury. Assault, car accidents, sports injuries, and other situations can cause impact with the ear or head. A traumatic brain injury can mean a sufferer is unable to organize the sounds they hear into meaning. An injury to the interior of the ear can impact hearing and can also cause pain. Injuries to the external part of the ear can also lead to disfigurement.
Recovering from Ear Injuries
Ear injuries can be devastating. They may mean never again hearing the sound of a loved one’s voice. Those who have lost their hearing may need rehabilitation and supports to deal with the loss and also to cope with the emotional impact of the injury. There is some social stigma surrounding hearing loss, as well, which may need to be faced with this type of injury.
These injuries can also be debilitating. Many jobs, for example, require good hearing to operate heavy machinery or to receive or make phone calls. An ear injury can therefore affect your ability to earn an income. If you love music or play an instrument, the way you experience your favorite hobbies may also change with a serious ear injury. Some ear injuries can impact your sense of balance.
To recover fully from a serious ear injury, you may need rehabilitation, hearing aids, surgery, counseling, and other resources. Getting an insurer to pay for these if you have suffered hearing loss at work or in a car accident can be challenging. An experienced attorney may be important in ensuring your insurers see these expenses as necessary and important.
