Walnut Creek Hearing Loss Attorneys
Compensation for Serious Ear Injuries
Accidents that affect our ability to perceive the world around us and communicate with others, such as injuries that damage our hearing, are especially life altering. That’s why anyone who’s suffered catastrophic hearing loss should consult with a qualified and caring personal injury attorney in Walnut Creek who can secure them compensation.
Leading Causes of Hearing Loss
Hearing loss can happen in many different ways. It can take place suddenly, after some kind of physical trauma, or over time from long term exposure to noise. One of the main causes of catastrophic hearing loss is motor vehicle accidents. Hearing loss following an automobile accident is much more common than people realize. For instance, statistics show that over 15% of drivers involved in an accident in which an airbag was deployed suffered a measurable degree of permanent hearing loss.
Certain workplaces can also pose a significant threat to a person’s hearing. Factories, workshops, construction sites, and industrial sites can have sustained, and dangerous, decibel levels. If workers are not supplied with adequate ear protection, they can suffer gradual and permanent hearing damage.
Another threat to many consumers is faulty or poorly designed products. For instance, sometimes users report that speakers, in particular on mobile devices used with headphones or ear buds, will suddenly spike in volume to the point it damages their hearing. Hearing aids, car speakers, mp3 players, and virtual reality devices have all been linked with increased likelihood of hearing loss.
