Are you suffering from ear pain after being injured in an accident? A head injury with ear pain may seem minor, but it could be a symptom of a more serious problem, which is why it is always best to have your symptoms checked out by a medical professional. There are some symptoms which are fairly common after a head injury, including headaches, dizziness and fatigue, and a head injury with ear pain is also quite common.
Even if you suffered a minor head injury such as concussion, ear pain is still something you should speak to your doctor about, to rule out anything more serious such as a brain injury.
How painful is your head injury with ear pain?
If your ear pain is sore enough to stop you going to work, we have some good news for you. You may be able to claim compensation for loss of earnings if you need time off work due to your head injury symptoms. Ear pain can be debilitating and can also cause dizziness and vertigo, so if you work in a physical job or you need to stand up for long periods of time (in retail, for example) then it makes sense to take some time off.
Ear pain can also affect your hearing temporarily until it subsides, making it uncomfortable to work in phone-based roles such as in a call centre. When you get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline, we’ll take into account the severity of your injuries and how they have affected your life. This information will be used to work out your personal injury settlement.
