- Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is an inner ear disorder characterized by repeated episodes of positional vertigo that produces a spinning sensation, blurred vision, nausea and disorientation.
- Tinnitus is a persistent ringing or other sound in the ears. It usually occurs from a heavy blow or after an explosion, such as an airbag exploding in a car accident. This constant ringing can make it difficult to focus on daily tasks such as driving, working, reading and talking.
- Permanent Hearing Loss can be conductive or sensor neural. Conductive hearing loss occurs in the external and middle ear while sensor neural hearing loss occurs when there is damage or dysfunction of the inner ear.
Many ear injuries happen in the following types of accidents:
- Car and truck accidents from the head hitting the steering wheel, window or from the air bag exploding
- Premises liability accidents / slip and fall accidents where the head sustains trauma
- Burns and / or explosions, possibly in the work place
- Dog bite ear injuries
- Defective products
- Boating accident
