Hearing loss injuries usually occur from one of three possible scenarios:
- Prolonged exposure to excessively loud noise;
- Exposure to a sudden extremely loud noise; or
- Injuries to the head during an accident.
Hearing loss claims are usually workplace-related injuries, such as Industrial Deafness, Tinnitus, and Acoustic Shock, but can also result from presbycusis or old age.
To receive compensation, the injured must prove that their hearing was intact prior to any industrial noise exposure and that the industrial noise exposure caused the hearing loss. However, you will likely need the opinion of an appropriate medical provider to determine the causal nature of the loss. Whether you sustain partial or severe hearing loss, you may be entitled to compensation.
