We won't charge any fees unless we help you get a settlement in your Chicago hearing loss lawsuit.

Tinnitus Linked to Airbag Deployment

Airbags have been proven to save lives, but they are also linked to numerous vehicle recalls due to concerns over excessive deployment speeds and malfunctions. Data has revealed that the deployment of an airbag can cause irreparable damage to the ears, and many victims have suffered from hearing loss and/or tinnitus following an accident. Initial damage to the eardrums can heal in a short period of time, but scar tissue and damage to the inner ear may contribute to long-term hearing loss, especially at higher frequencies. Roughly 17% of those involved in an accident in which an airbag is deployed have permanent hearing loss.

Many people suffer from some form of tinnitus at some point in their lives. It is a ringing or buzzing in the ear that occurs despite the lack of any actual sound, and it is thought to be caused by damage to the nerves in the inner ear that are responsible for transmitting sound and pitch to the brain. Tinnitus sufferers who have been injured in auto accidents or when their airbags deployed unexpectedly may experience more severe symptoms. The constant buzzing or ringing has even led some to take their own lives due to their inability to escape or drown out the sound.

Hearing Loss on the Job

It can be more difficult to notice progressive hearing loss resulting from repetitive injuries to the inner ear on the job because the hearing loss is gradual, occurring over years rather than instantly. Loud environments, such as construction sites or factories, are often the cause of these injuries, but they can also occur when a worker is hit in the head or suffers a blow directly to the ear. A doctor can confirm whether an eardrum has been ruptured or if a victim has suffered an injury to the inner ear, but the treatment of scar tissue is difficult. Scar tissue inside the ear is most commonly associated with ringing or buzzing in the ears and long-term hearing loss.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong
★★★★★
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim
★★★★★
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia
★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
