    What Types of Hearing loss Can Trauma Cause?

    Accidents can cause various types of hearing loss, including sensorineural, conductive, and sudden deafness. Sensorineural hearing loss occurs due to damage to the inner ear or the auditory nerve and can be caused by factors like exposure to loud noises, aging, or genetic conditions. Conductive hearing loss occurs when sound waves cannot pass through the outer or middle ear, commonly due to ear infections, blockages, or injury to the ear canal or eardrum. Sudden deafness, also known as sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSHL), can occur spontaneously and requires immediate medical attention.


    What Steps Should I Take Following an Accident Resulting in Deafness?

    If you are involved in an accident that results in a loss of hearing, you must  seek medical treatment immediately. Visit a healthcare provider who specializes in hearing health, such as an audiologist or an ear, nose, and throat doctor. They can perform a thorough evaluation, including a hearing test, to determine the extent and nature of the hearing loss.

    The healthcare provider will recommend appropriate treatment options based on the underlying cause of the hearing loss, which may include hearing aids, cochlear implants, or other assistive devices. They can also provide important documentation regarding the severity of your hearing loss, which can be used as evidence when pursuing compensation from the negligent party.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
