Hearing loss in a car accident can occur from direct trauma or from an air bag explosion. Loss of consciousness with a head injury can also lead to lost hearing.
There are two types of hearing loss:
Conductive hearing loss stems from a mechanical problem in the external or middle ear. Conductive hearing loss can be reversible. Sensorineural hearing loss stems from damage or dysfunction of the inner ear. It cannot be restored. Very often sensorineural hearing loss is from a traumatic injury.
Traumatic hearing loss can occur when the inner ear or temporal lobes are damaged by the head hitting the steering wheel or window in a car accident. It can also be caused by an air bag explosion, which can be so intense that it ruptures the eardrum and can cause bleeding from the inner ear. When the eardrum is ruptured, the fragile bones of the middle ear can be dislocated and major inner ear damage can occur.
