Tinnitus is a common symptom from a traumatic brain injury following an auto or motorcycle accident. I have represented clients over the years who have suffered hearing loss or damage resulting from a head injury. Often times, a deployed airbag can cause an inner ear injury.
Tinnitus is best defined as any sensation of a sound that does not arise from a source external to the person who experiences the sound. Although tinnitus is most often perceived as “a ringing in the ears,” a variety of other sounds, such as buzzing, humming, whistling, clicking, or roaring, may be heard.
