Hearing Loss Injuries Caused in a Motor Vehicle Accident
Motor vehicle accidents can result in hearing loss, which is something many people might not know. People think about hearing loss mainly as an issue that older persons struggle with, but accident victims can suffer from hearing loss at any age due to injuries sustained during their vehicle accidents.
Car accidents can cause numerous physical injuries, like bone breaks, cuts, and internal injuries. One injury from an auto accident that people might not consider is an injury to the ears. Both drivers and passengers are vulnerable to head injury during a car collision, particularly when the vehicle rolls or flips, which can lead to resulting ear injuries.
Ear injuries can also take place because of the vehicle’s airbags deploying during the accident impact. The airbags can deploy near the driver’s or passengers’ heads and ears, leading to injury and hearing loss. The driver and passenger might not realize immediately after the vehicle accident that a head or ear injury has occurred. Especially because head injuries are associated with lapses in consciousness, people involved in motor vehicle accidents might not know that they hit their heads.
Head injuries can take place in a New York auto accident when the vehicle occupants crash up against objects inside the vehicle, like the windows or dashboard. Head trauma and ear injuries can happen even if the accident did not happen at a high rate of speed. Accidents at all speeds can cause head trauma and hearing loss.
Motor vehicle accident victims need to make sure that their injuries are treated by a doctor as soon as possible. Victims can then talk to one of our firm’s car accident lawyers about their hearing loss and their potential right to compensation.
