Ear Injury & Ear Surgery Claims & Claims for Loss of Hearing
in the event of you damaging or injuring your ear, or suffering from a loss of hearing due to an accident or prolonged exposure to a noisy working environment, you should be considering making a serious injury claim for compensation.
Ear damage can occur in a number of ways and can affect the external features of the ear or features and strictures inside the ear, such as the eardrum.
As well as physical damage to the appearance of the ear, obviously a major worry for people with ear damage is suffering with temporary, or even worse, permanent loss of hearing in one or both of the ears.
The ability to hear is a crucial sense and used in every aspect of our everyday lives, damage to this area of the body has drastic consequences as it may hinder a victims ability to walk or drive.

Types of ear damage
There are three parts of the ear that can suffer damage in an incident, including the outside (the pinna), the middle (eardrum and three bones) and the inside (the cochlea). Examples of ear damage include:
- Industrial deafness
- Injury or loss or an ear caused by a specific incident (e.g. explosion)
- Eardrum damage
- Hearing loss caused by a lack of personal protective equipment
- Causes of ear injuries
Injuries to the ear can be the result of all kinds of accidents, but the most common are:
- Objects in the ear
- Head injury
- Serious road accidents
- Sport accidents
- Prolonged exposure to loud noise
Hearing loss (whether complete or partial) and ear damage can have a serious impact on a victims life, leaving them unable to work again or needing long-term medical treatment.
Some people may well suffer from a specific accident at work leading to hearing loss which could leave them unable to continue in their chosen career. This can obviously have long term consequences for the victim and severely inhibit their future earning capabilities.
For injuries of such gravity, it is clear you should speak only with a specialist personal injury solicitor.
