Personal Injury and Hearing Loss

A major accident can have lifelong consequences for the people involved. People who have done nothing wrong may have to live with medical issues in the aftermath such as chronic pain, paralysis, or disfigurement. One kind of condition that can drastically alter the rest of a person’s life is hearing loss, whether it is a partial impairment or total deafness.

If you or a loved one is living with hearing loss because of another party’s thoughtless decisions, you may have grounds for a legal claim. This could be your best way to receive compensation for medical expenses, reduced earning capacity, lost wages, and more. Contact the experienced Des Moines personal injury lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. today at (515) 705-0233 to discuss your legal options.

Causes of Hearing Impairment

Many people who were born deaf may not see it as a significant impairment, but the story can be very different for those who have recently lost their hearing. Sudden deafness can affect a person’s relationships, work abilities, and overall quality of life. Unfortunately, there are many injuries that can cause this condition, including:

  • Very loud noise. This is one of the most common accidental causes of hearing loss. It can be caused by loud workplaces like construction sites and factories, or one-time incidents like gunshots or explosions. Sadly, this type of damage is often permanent.
  • Eardrum perforation. The eardrum is a membrane that separates the middle and inner portions of the ear. It can be punctured by a direct blow to the ear, an object inserted in the ear, or skull fractures. This injury can take weeks or months to heal and may require surgery.
  • Auditory nerve damage. The auditory nerve carries information from the inner ear to the brain. It can be damaged by loud noise, certain kinds of infection, or head injuries. The damage may be treatable with surgery but is sometimes irreversible.

If your life has been altered by injuries like these, our Des Moines hearing loss injury attorneys can help you take action against the parties responsible for your impairment.
