Some FAQs Regarding Work Related Hearing Loss

If you work in an environment where you are constantly being exposed to loud noises, you have an increased risk of hearing loss. While it's your employer's responsibility to provide you with protective equipment, gradual hearing loss may occur over time.

Is My Hearing Loss Work-Related?

It can be extremely difficult to determine if your hearing loss is related to exposure to noise in your work environment. If you have questions, call your doctor and explain your situation and the type of noise you experience during your time at work.

What Are My Options If I Have Work-Related Hearing Loss?

You need to determine the “date of your disablement” which is the last day of the 90-day period after you’ve left your job. If you feel that your hearing has been impacted by your work environment, call a reputable attorney to file a Worker’s Compensation claim.

What Can I Do If My Hearing Loss Is Work-Related and I’ve Missed the Deadline?

In most states, you have up to two years from your “date of disablement” to file a Worker’s Compensation claim. If you’ve missed that deadline, you can still file a claim if you do so within 90-days of determining your hearing loss is work-related.

What Benefits Am I Eligible to Receive?

If you win your case, you will be eligible for compensation for your medical bills and possibly the purchase of hearing aids or medical procedures that restore or improve your hearing.
