  • Are There Different Forms of Hearing Loss?

    Yes, people can experience hearing loss in one of two ways, either via conductive hearing loss or via sensorineural hearing loss. Conductive hearing loss occurs sound waves cannot be properly transmitted to the eardrum by any part of the ear. While sensorineural hearing loss is caused by damage in the inner ear, central nerve, or sound-processing portions of the brain. This means that the brain and the nerves are unable to process sound. This type of hearing loss ranges from moderate severity to complete deafness.

  • Do I Qualify to File a Lawsuit for My Hearing Loss?

    Hearing loss claims are most typically seen in workers’ compensation lawsuits, which is when employers fail to protect their workers from hearing loss because they are not using the proper equipment. However, hearing loss can happen outside of work too. Anyone who has suffered from hearing loss due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another party may be eligible to file a lawsuit. This includes people who have suffered hearing loss from exposure to loud noise, medical malpractice, or even product liability. 

    For example, currently, victims who have suffered at the hand of an FDA-approved drug, Tepezza®, are filing lawsuits against the company Horizon Therapeutics® for failing to disclose the dangers associated with hearing loss when using Tepezza.

  • What Are Some of the Symptoms to Hearing Loss?

    Hearing loss can result from a number of reasons, be it an injury to the ear at work, the head, or even through medications you are prescribed. Hearing loss can even be experienced differently depending on the circumstances of your situation. This is why it is important for you to know the most common symptoms of hearing loss, as listed below:

    • Ringing, roaring, or buzzing sound in the ear
    • Ear pain, itching, or irritation
    • Muffled hearing
    • Hearing high-pitched noises
    • Vertigo
    • Issues understanding speech

    In some cases, hearing loss can slowly worsen over a period of time, or it can happen suddenly. Those individuals who experience hearing loss slowly may take longer periods of time to realize they have a problem. This is why it is vital for hearing loss victims to seek help from a medical professional the moment they realize something is wrong.

  • What Are the Damages That Can Be Recovered in a Hearing Loss Lawsuit?

    While compensation can vary from case to case, typically, victims who have suffered from hearing loss can recover a number of damages, some of which include, but are not limited to, the following:

    Medical expenses: Any past or future medical visits, medication, transportation, specialist visits, etc.

    Assistive listening devices: This can include any hearing aids, implants, or any devices used to help you improve your hearing.

    Diminished future potential earnings: If you missed an important financial opportunity due to your injuries or are no longer able to work in the same capacity as you were prior to your injuries.

    Lost wages: If you have been unable to work since your hearing loss, you may be eligible to recover lost wages. 

    Pain and suffering: Non-economic damages surrounding the physical and emotional pain and suffering you have experienced due to hearing loss.

    For more specifics on what you may be able to recover for your hearing loss, victims can connect with an attorney who can review their case.
