Effects of Tinnitus
If a person suffers from tinnitus after an accident, many times, it is diagnosed long after any insurance company would consider it as possibly related. The reason for this is usually that the victim is concentrated on other injuries, such as whiplash injuries brain injuries, or fractures, that can occur in accidents that are bad enough to also cause tinnitus. The effects of this injury can be devastating to someone’s life.

How Insurance Companies Treat Tinnitus
We can see images of fractures from accident with Xrays. We can see issues with the vertebrae with MRIs. But the objectivity of a tinnitus diagnosis is often met with resistance from car insurance companies. There are ways, however, for doctors to diagnose tinnitus with an objective finding versus a subjective finding (“My ears are ringing.”) Consider the following tests:
- Hearing or Audiological exam; and
- Movement that detects clenching of jaw, etc…;
Car insurance adjusters are more likely to assess value to tinnitus when there is an objective finding - - or a doctor opining that a car accident victim has tinnitus based upon one of the tests above or some other factor.
