Hearing Loss after an Explosion
An explosion can have a number of adverse effects on a person’s health, including serious damage to a person’s hearing. An explosion causes a large amount of energy to be displaced, creating a shock wave and a very loud sound. This loud sound may be powerful enough to destroy a person’s ability to hear, either temporarily or permanently.

Losing Hearing due to an Explosion
The sounds that come from an explosion have the ability to ruin hearing. These sounds can create a reaction with the small hairs that cover the inside of a person’s ear. When these hairs are affected by loud noises, they may not function properly. As a result, that individual can lose their ability to hear. Once damaged, these hairs cannot be replaced or repaired.
Explosions may cause the following problems associated with hearing loss:
- Inability to hear low-intensity sounds or speech
- Hearing speech or sounds as muffled
- Ringing noises in the ear (tinnitus)
Treating hearing loss can prove problematic, as the hairs destroyed by loud noises may not actually be treated. Instead, a person may need to wear a hearing aid to regain some of the damaged auditory sense.
If you or someone you love has been injured in an explosion, there may be legal options available to help you to recover compensation. To learn more about your legal rights, contact the explosion victims’ attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. by calling 800-242-2874 today.
