Traumatic brain injuries can lead to many symptoms including hearing problems. Tinnitus causes a person to suffer a ringing type of sound when no sound comes from an external source. Some people know of the condition as ringing in the ears.
Many people experience tinnitus on an occasional basis without any underlying condition or disease. In some individuals, the condition persists and can become difficult for patients to manage.
One common cause of tinnitus is a closed head injury. In addition to the ringing, patients may suffer some hearing loss. These injuries can be caused by an injury to the basal part of the skull even when no fracture is observed. Physicians are not completely sure what causes tinnitus.
Tinnitus can become debilitating. There are possible treatments for this condition, but not every treatment is right for every patient, and the treatment can involve medication, hearing aids or antidepressants. It can take time and money to determine the correct treatment for a patient.
It is important that a patient suffering from chronic tinnitus consult with a physician to determine the possible cause and potential treatments.
In some cases, this condition can be the result of accidents such as a vehicle collision. In these cases, the injured person may be eligible to recover compensation for their losses. If the injuries were caused by another driver’s negligence, then the victim’s medical bills, lost income and other related expenses, such as pain and suffering can often be recovered.
In order to determine whether it is possible to collect compensation for injuries, it is important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney.
