Finding The Best Delaware Valley Lawyer for Advice on Tinnitus Litigation
Tinnitus is an injury commonly resulting from trauma. If that trauma was caused by negligence, it can form the basis for a personal injury claim. Tinnitus can be caused by a car accident, a slip and fall, extremely loud noises, entry into the ear canal of a foreign object, and much more.
In the last few months I have been retained by people whose Tinnitus resulted from:
Entry into the ear canal by a rat tail comb at a beauty salon
Explosion of an M80 thrown by a neighbor on New Years Eve
A simple car accident in which a piece of luggage struck my client’s head
Fall down at a Dunkin Donuts in which the client’s laptop smashed into his face
If you have a Tinnitus injury and are pursuing injury litigation, there are steps you can take that will help maximize the settlement value. First, you should consider becoming active with the American Tinnitus Association (ATA) and other support groups. There is a support group that meets in Delaware County, Pennsylvania that discusses various treatments for Tinnitus. For further information contact Ken Kistler at KennethWKistler@gmail.com or (610) 644-1817. It is likely that a similar group holds meetings near you.
There are a lot of homeopathic treatments out there. Keep track of all you have tried and what effect they had, if any. You can keep a log of how your Tinnitus affects your daily life. Many Tinnitus sufferers sleep poorly, experience weight gain because of fatigue and not being able to work out, etc. Your journal will show that you have tried everything.
There is another very useful thing you can do by visiting the ATA website. You can pick out the sounds you hear. Go to http://www.ata.org/sounds-of-tinnitus and see if you can find the ringing you hear. This will help your lawyer understand your situation. It will also help convince the insurance company of how badly you are suffering.
