One of the most common injuries as a result of an accident is the loss of hearing or constant ringing or buzzing in the ears known as tinnitus. Generally, the traumatic impact to the ear or sudden jolt or whiplash can cause both loss of hearing or tinnitus. As one of the major senses, having the loss of hearing or tinnitus as a result of an accident is a very serious injury and should be treated as such.
Permanency of Hearing Loss and Tinnitus
Injuries to your ear can often times be permanent. It is a known medical fact that there is no cure for tinnitus (ringing in the ear). There are various ways to mask the noise, but the injury is permanent with no form of treatment.
Unfortunately, the loss of hearing can be the same. Whether the cause of the injury to the ear was an airbag deployment or serious whiplash, any injury that disrupts one’s hearing should be immediately put under the care of the right medical care providers.
