Also of note is a recent increase in accidents victums reporting Tinnitus, or ringing of the ears, after an auto accident, as the relationship between an accident and the onset of tinnitus become better known. In the past it was sometimes an overlooked symptom. Doctors and ER rooms seldom ask about this, and if the person in the accident does not notice it for a few days, the person may not associate it with the accident, and hope it will just go away, the person may not report it to a doctor, particularly when the doctor or nurse does not ask about it.
Often in a car accident there is no direct trauma to the ears or to the head. However, studies have shown the correlation between tinnitus and wiplash from accidents. Whiplash may take hours or days to develop.
Tinnitus and the onset of whiplash was reported in the International Tinnitus Journal, vol. 15 no. 2 July- December, 2009. Also, see article in the Mayo Clinic official website: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/whiplash/symptoms-causes/syc-20378921.

The report noted above states: Very well known is that after head and neck trauma, many patients complain of various types of tinnitus. Therefore, we prepared a specific, detailed analysis of the background of head and neck trauma. The majority of patients (consistent through all age groups) reported so-called whiplash-related tinnitus problems after a car accident. They also reported posttraumatic complaints of whiplash injury (also consistent through all the age groups but especially frequent in the age group 30-40 years). Car accidents and whiplash occur more frequently in the younger age groups, whereas reports of cerebral concussions are more frequent in the old-age group (> 70 years).
If this has happed to you, you should report it as soon as possible. You should also consult with an experienced attorney who understand this particular injury as early as possible.
