    The long term effects of an ear injury

    When you have suffered an ear injury that was not your own fault, you may feel upset that you are the one left to deal with all of the effects. You have every right to feel this way. The long term effects of an ear injury can be difficult to cope with, especially at first.

    Coping with the long term effects of an ear injury

    If your accident was caused by your employer, then it is not fair that you are the one having to cope with the physical, psychological and financial implications of an ear injury alone. You will probably have to cope with the loss of your hearing and this may be partial or complete. The loss may be temporary but, in many cases, it is permanent.

    One of the long term consequences can be the effect on your financial situation. You may have to pay out of your own pocket for some treatments, such as certain hearing aids which are not available on the National Health Service. You may also have to pay for travel to hospital appointments and child care. At the same time, there may be long term effects on your ability to work. Perhaps you cannot work at all or cannot work in such a highly paid job as you used to.

    Whilst it may not be possible to completely restore your hearing, it may be possible to get help with your finances. You may be able to get some compensation if it can be shown that your employer was at fault for your hearing loss. Perhaps your employer did not assess the risks that you were exposed to at work or perhaps they failed to provide you with personal protective equipment such as appropriate ear defenders.
