More about deafness claims
The impact of hearing loss can affect individuals in many different ways at different times of life. For example, hearing loss during early childhood has the capacity to affect a child's ability to talk and to understand spoken language.
The ear itself is a very complex organ. Although the outer ear is the most noticeable part, the more complex and delicate parts of the inner ear which process the sound waves and enable us to hear are contained inside the skull itself.
If damage is caused to these vital, delicate and sensitive components of the auditory system, by, for example avoidable surgical error, then hearing problems and possibly complete deafness can result. Injuries to the inner ear may also cause problems with your balance.
Certain drugs or medicines can also have adverse effects on the ear.
