Hearing Loss at Work: Workers’ Compensation Is Your Savior

If you have experienced or are now suffering from hearing loss because of your job, you don't have to suffer anymore. In fact, workers’ compensation will cover hearing loss from a job and make sure that you're properly cared for. This little known fact about workers’ compensation can be a savior as 1/2 to 2/3 of hearing loss can be contributed to work-related reasons.

Here are the benefits of workers’ compensation for hearing loss:

  • Even if you have only been experiencing hearing loss while on the job for a few months, this is still covered under workers’ compensation. Hearing loss from a loud workplace can occur just months after being hired in and will only get worse if left untreated.
  • The rule is – the longer it has been since the exposure, the worse it must be to file a claim. This is because hearing gets worse with age. Age related hearing loss is called “presbycusis.”
  • If you left the noisy workplace because of being laid off, change of position or career, or even left on your own, you can still file for workers’ compensation for hearing loss.
  • All it takes is a hearing test to see what kind of damage has been done to your hearing in order to proceed with workers’ compensation benefits for hearing loss. Even mild cases have the opportunity for benefits.

You don’t have to suffer from hearing loss without benefits. Know your rights as an employee so you can get the benefits you deserve. The attorneys of Gaylord & Nantais can help so you obtain your workers’ compensation.
