Although tinnitus is usually associated with industrial deafness claims, road traffic accidents are also one of the known causes of the development of this condition.
At What’s My Claim Worth, we have acted for many clients who have developed tinnitus due to airbag deployment or as a result of direct impact to the ear during a car accident.

One such case involved a client who was involved in a road traffic accident between a car and the bus that she was travelling on. Our client was already suffering from tinnitus prior to her bus passenger accident, but since the accident her symptoms had significantly increased.
We arranged for our client to be examined by an Ear, Nose and Throat expert (ENT Surgeon), who confirmed that our client had suffered an exacerbation of her mild hearing loss as a direct result of the injuries sustained in the accident she was involved in.
As a result of this, we were able to successfully secure our client £50,000 in compensation for the multiple injuries she incurred during the accident.
