Our expert says:
It is possible to obtain hearing loss after a head injury. This could be due to multiple factors, ranging from a fracture through the cochlea causing sensori-neural hearing loss, to bleeding into the middle ear cavity that will cause a conductive hearing loss. He should be examined by an ENT to establish a cause and this will include doing a full ENT examination and an audiogram. Depending on the outcome a CT of the temporal bones may be necessary. This will be able to determine whether or not the damage is permanent.
