Ears and hearing part two

Physical damage to the ear and loss of hearing following an accident or industrial damage has a major effect on your life. We rely so much on sound and hearing, from day to day interaction with family and friends to being able to stand up straight. An injury to your ear or loss of hearing can have a evastating effect on your life. This Manners Pimblett article looks at damage to the ears and hearing in an accident.

Ears

Apart from the cartilage you see on the side of your head, the purpose of the ear goes far beyond how they look. Aesthetics aside, the primary function of the ear and being able to listen, is protected inside the inner ear. Although your ears are part of a complex set of organs to provide you with vital information, damage can affect you in so many ways. Your body is complex and being able to walk, run and even stand requires the use of your ears.

Damage to ears

Accidents and environmental factors can cause damage to your ears and hearing. The fleshy outer ear can become damaged in an accident and successful cosmetic surgery can repair this damage. However hearing can be affected on a short and a long term basis. Loss of hearing can be detrimental to an individual's life.

Compensation for ear injury or loss of hearing

Loss of hearing compensation cases vary on the amount of hearing loss. In our last article we remark on the fact that some loss of hearing can achieve up to £70,000 in compensation. Test cases are always being processed through the legal system and it is difficult to gauge the amount of hearing loss and ensure compensation is relative. One thing is for sure, as with the loss of sight or indeed any other senses; loss of hearing is an important aspect of you.
