Loss of hearing injuries are difficult injuries to fully explain to a jury when the loss of hearing is not complete deafness.

The Loss of Hearing Injury Attorney at Hill Law Firm will make sure that our client’s hearing and deafness injuries are properly proven to a jury.
Why does the Type of Injury Matter in a Lawsuit?
Along with proving liability, a litigant must prove injury/damages to recover any monetary damages in a lawsuit. The type of injury or damages will be considered by a jury when they award damages. It is important if you have a unique or atypical injury that you have an attorney whom understands your injury. If they have not handled your type of injury before, it is important that your lawyer hires the right experts and learns about your injury. Loss of hearing is a very unique injury and making sure a jury understands that loss and injury is crucial.
What is a Loss of Hearing Injury?
Loss of hearing can be caused by a number of causes. Loud noises including explosions and other industrial events, head trauma and medications can all cause loss of hearing in adults. The degree of the loss of hearing can vary by ear from partial to total loss of hearing. Some types of hearing loss can be progressive and some can improve. Some people do not even know they have suffered hearing loss until it is too late and already extreme.
What are Deafness Injury Treatments?
Depending on the degree of the loss of hearing, treatment for partial to complete deafness vary. Some hearing is caused by trauma to a brain or ear itself. Some types of hearing loss can be treated with therapy and others can be treated with medication. Many types of hearing loss cannot be treated but instead the patient just requires long term plans to accommodate the loss. Always consult with your physician to find out the right course of treatment for your particular injury.
What is the Future Medical Care Cost Associated with Loss of Hearing Injuries?
One of the elements of damages in a personal injury case is the future medical care that in reasonable medical probability will be sustained by the Plaintiff. The Plaintiff carries the burden of proving the future medical needs, complications, and associated costs with their injuries. If you have suffered a loss of hearing, the attorney at Hill Law Firm will be sure to employ the correct experts including audiologist, ENT doctors, and life care planners to prove the future medical costs associated with loss of hearing and deafness injuries.
