  • What is Tinnitus?

    Tinnitus is the perception of sound that does not have an external source,  meaning other people cannot hear it. Typically it is described as a ringing sound in the ear, but some people hear other sounds, such as roaring or buzzing. An estimated 10-25% of adults suffer from tinnitus, and with time individuals with tinnitus can notice it fade. However, in some cases, it can worsen, lasting for three months or longer.

    Causes of tinnitus include, but are not limited to, the following:

    • Noise exposure: Loud noise exposures can come in the form of vehicle sirens, railroad engine whistles, motorcycles, loud equipment, and firearms.
    • Hearing loss: Tinnitus can be a symptom of a larger issue like hearing loss. 
    • Medications: According to the National Institute of Deafness, tinnitus can result as a side effect of taking certain medications, especially if they are taken at high doses, such as Tepezza, which is used to treat Thyroid Eye Disease (also known as Graves’ Disease).
    • Head or neck injuries: Individuals who have suffered an injury to the head or neck, like whiplash, may experience tinnitus. 
    • Infections: Infections of the ear can cause ear wax to build up, triggering tinnitus. 
    • Chronic conditions: Other medical conditions like migraines, thyroid disorders, diabetes anemia, and other certain autoimmune disorders may cause tinnitus. 

    When diagnosed with tinnitus, most individuals have subjective tinnitus, meaning you are the only one able to hear the sounds. In rare cases, individuals may be diagnosed with objective tinnitus—meaning the sounds caused by the tinnitus may pulsate rhythmically, and in even rarer cases, a doctor or medical professional may be able to hear the sounds using a stethoscope. Often objective tinnitus develops from an identifiable cause and can be treated. If you believe you are suffering from tinnitus, please reach out to a medical professional for help.

  • What Are the Symptoms of Tinnitus?

    Victims who suffer from tinnitus may experience a buzzing, humming, whistling, roaring, ringing, clicking, and or hissing sound in their head and in one or both ears. Individuals may also experience headaches and bouts of vertigo. Symptoms of tinnitus may often come and go depending on the individual. If you fear that you may be suffering from symptoms of tinnitus, we highly encourage you to seek out help from a medical professional.

  • What Challenges Does Tinnitus Bring?

    Often referred to as a "hidden hearing loss," tinnitus is not always detected by conventional hearing tests. Often, tinnitus can occur when an individual is exposed to loud noises that can damage the brain's ability to listen and decode words. Often people will learn to ignore the issue and adapt to a lower quality of life while dealing with the issue. Tinnitus has also been linked to sleeping disorders, depression, and anxiety. It can affect concentration and the ability for attentional focusing and working memory, making it a complex condition to treat. The time an individual struggles with tinnitus can vary anywhere from a few days to even a lifetime.

  • Can I Sue for Tinnitus?

    Depending on the cause of your tinnitus, victims may be eligible to file a claim. Typically tinnitus lawsuits stem from the following incidents:

    • Occupational hazards
    • Medical issues or malpractice 
    • Head or neck injuries
    • Negligence 
    • Product liability

    However, to determine your best course of action and if you qualify to file a lawsuit, we highly recommend you speak with an experienced attorney.

  • Are There Any Lawsuits for Tinnitus Now?

    Yes, currently, victims of an FDA-approved drug, Tepezza®, are now filing lawsuits after taking Tepezza® and suffering from hearing loss and tinnitus. According to the lawsuits, Horizon failed to place adequate waning on the labels failing to warn patients or doctors about the potential risk of hearing loss or tinnitus. They also failed to warn how these issues could be permanent.

    Tepezza®, the only drug known to treat TED, and based on clinical trials conducted by the manufacturers of the drug, Horizon, only 10% of patients reported hearing issues. However, a 2021 study found that patients taking Tepezza® are more than six times more likely to develop temporary or even permanent hearing issues.
