What Causes Hearing Loss?
Approximately 17 percent of Americans have some degree of hearing loss. Such hearing problems commonly result from genetic conditions, accidents, diseases and occupational noise. Causes of hearing loss include:
Vehicle crashes – Car and truck accidents can lead to high-impact ear injuries and crushed ears, causing hearing loss.
Head trauma – A sharp impact to the head can cause inner-ear concussion and hearing loss.
Fractures – Broken or dislocated bones in the ear, such as fracture of the cochlea, can lead to hearing problems or deafness.
Loud noises – Loud sounds at work such as explosions can result in temporary or permanent hearing loss
Falls – Serious falls onto objects or involving head injuries often cause the loss of hearing.
Falling objects – Sharp or heavy objects that fall on victims can result in head trauma and hearing damage.
Disease – Otosclerosis, Meniere’s disease and autoimmune inner ear disease are medical conditions that result in hearing loss.
Medical malpractice – Medical malpractice, such as misdiagnosis and inadequate treatment after accidents, can cause preventable hearing loss in patients.
Work injuries – Workers harmed in explosions, crushed by machinery or exposed to prolonged durations of unsafe noises often suffer partial or full hearing loss.
Hospital negligence – Negligent actions by hospital professionals can result in hearing loss and deafness. This includes surgical errors, birth injuries and failure to diagnose.
Nursing home negligence – Nursing home residents who receive insufficient medical care, poor aid when moving or lack of safety guards can suffer hearing loss.
Industrial accidents – Explosions are a top cause of industrial-related hearing loss accidents.
