Hearing Loss: Types, Causes, Symptoms, and Treatments

Hearing loss is a common work-related issue, especially if you have worked in an industry where you have been exposed to loud noises for long periods of time. Knowing what type of hearing loss you have and what caused it will help you decide when to file a Workers' Compensation claim.

Different Types of Hearing Loss

There are three main types of hearing loss. Conductive (affects outer and middle portions of the ear), sensorineural (affects the inner ear), and a mixture of both. Any of the types of hearing loss can range from mild to severe depending on the length of time you were exposed to the noise and the amount of damage your ears sustained during that time.

Causes and Treatments

The primary cause of hearing loss is long-term exposure to loud noises. Certain types of illness can also affect your hearing. In most cases, hearing ads are a treatment for hearing loss. If there is extensive damage to the ears and your hearing has been dramatically affected, cochlear implants may be used. Long-term treatment is normally the only way to restore at least a portion of your hearing.

How Claims for Hearing Loss Can Benefit Workers

Filing a Workers’ Compensation claim can ensure that you get the medical attention you need and that the cost of your treatment will be covered. You will also be compensated for the cost of any devices that may be required such as hearing aids or implants.

At Gaylord & Nantais, our Workers’ Compensation attorneys are available to discuss your options with you once you decide to file a claim. Call and schedule a consultation today to find out how a Workers’ Compensation claim can benefit you if you have experienced hearing loss.
