The sound of a baby crying, the sound of a babbling brook – these are sounds of beauty that many of us take for granted. The sound of a car horn, the sound of a train whistle, these are sounds of safety that many of us also take for granted. For an injury victim to suffer a permanent hearing loss would change his or her life dramatically in an instant. The wide range of sounds that help direct our lives are suddenly gone. The victim will need to learn to live in silence and not only must the physical components be dealt with, so also must the emotional components. As with any injury area there is a range of loss ending in total hearing loss.
As with any injury, medical treatment must be obtained in a timely manner. Of equal importance is the need to follow up on the medical treatment so that:
- You are treated properly.
- There is a proper record.
Additionally a law firm should be retained as soon as possible to deal with the insurance company and ensure the case progresses properly. A law firm should be retained because the issues involved are very complicated and there are simply so many issues to deal with.
