Many people who suffer a traumatic brain injury also suffer from tinnitus, or ringing in the ears. Tinnitus can be present in one or both ears and causes the paties to suffer from hearing a ringing, buzzing, hissing or clicking sound, either constantly or intermittently. Most people with traumatic brain injury only suffer tinnitus temporarily, but for some it is a permanent condition. These patients can suffer from fatigue, headaches, lack of concentration and depression.
If a patient's tinnitus was caused by negligence or a faulty product, we help patients pursue damages to help with medical costs and compensate for pain and suffering. To do so, the attorney would prove to the jury the existence of tinnitus and show how severely it damages the patient's quality of life.
If it possible for an audiologist to measure the frequency and loudness of the sound and reproduce it to play for the jury. Actually hearing the sound the patient hears is the best way to convince jurors of the level of suffering and need for damages.
