Your ears are made up of a very complex structure and do an amazing job for you every day. Your ears can detect sound and then convert it into sound waves which are then turned into nerve pulses that are sent to your brain. Your brain then makes sense of the sounds and makes you understand the noise.
Your ears are made up of three main parts. You have an outer ear drum which is the part that catches the sound waves sending them to the ear drum and is visible to us. You then have the middle ear which has three bones in it which move when sound is passed to the ear drum passing the sound onto another part of the ear with vibrations. Lastly you have the inner ear which has a fluid in it and tiny hairs that create an electrical pulse to your brain.
The fact that your ears are so complex means that they are susceptible to injury. This injury could be sustained in the workplace making you entitled to make a South Cambridgeshire accident at work compensation claim.
Damaging your ear can be very serious and painful. In the worst cases it can leave you deaf. The sort of injury you could get to your ears is fractures to the three tiny bones, swelling and bleeding and a burst ear drum. All of which would need professional medical treatment.
If you have sustained an injury to your ear while you were at work and the accident was someone else’s fault you do not need to suffer alone. You should make a South Cambridgeshire accident at work compensation claim to recover any extra costs you have incurred and get some compensation for the pain you are suffering.
