Boston Loss of Hearing Lawyers Seek Just Compensation for Devastating Injuries

Massachusetts personal injury attorneys advocate for accident victims who suffer deafness

Suffering severe or even partial loss of hearing can have a profound negative impact on your life, including your ability to work and carry on other activities. When hearing loss occurs as a result of an injury caused by another person’s negligence or misconduct, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Feinberg & Alban P.C. fights aggressively pursue for people who lose some or all of their hearing as a result of accidents. We serve the entire Boston area from our offices in Center Plaza and Brookline.

How and why can you suffer a loss of hearing?

Loss of hearing, whether partial or total, may occur as the result of an injury, trauma or medical condition. Common causes include:

  • Loud noise from workplace environments, explosions, firearms or other sources
  • Rupturing of the eardrum
  • Damage to the middle or inner ear
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) affecting the auditory receptors in the cerebral cortex
  • Side effects of certain medications
  • Certain types of illness

Hearing loss may be conductive (affecting the outer or middle ear), sensorineural (affecting the inner ear) or mixed (affecting both). 

How loss of hearing can affect you

Hearing loss, whether partial or amounting to complete deafness, can create a host of problems for you in your daily life, such as:

  • Difficulty or inability to communicate with others in social or professional settings and to enjoy music, movies, television and other media
  • Vocational disability
  • Challenges with speech recognition, language development, and cognitive function
  • The need for medical care to treat your hearing loss, rehabilitative services to help you overcome its effects, and hearing aids, other assistive devices and future care you require
  • Pain and suffering as a result of your injury
  • Emotional distress, social isolation, anxiety, depression and loss of the enjoyment of life

As your attorneys, we will work to recover just compensation for all of the damages you suffer as a result of this catastrophic injury.

How we can help you

If your hearing loss was inflicted by another person’s negligent or deliberate action, our experienced personal injury attorneys can represent you in a lawsuit to obtain just compensation. We will investigate the possible causes of your hearing loss and identify anyone we believe is at fault. We will collect the relevant evidence pertaining to the incident and to your injuries and their effect on your life. This includes accident reports, eyewitness statements, audiograms, medical records, bills and expert testimony. Then, we will file a claim and negotiate with defendants’ insurance companies. If there is no acceptable settlement offer, we will bring a lawsuit and take the case to trial. The sooner you retain us, the sooner we will be able to begin to build your case and advocate for you.
