Exposure to noise at work over time can cause hearing loss and, in some cases, deafness.
If you have hearing loss, you may be entitled to compensation and hearing aids at no cost to you.
Hearing loss is covered under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA), whether noise at work has contributed to your hearing loss, or has just aggravated a pre-existing hearing problem.
If your hearing has worsened, you may be entitled to additional compensation, even if you have previously filed a hearing loss claim. There is no “class action suit” for hearing loss. There is no “hearing loss fund.”
To receive compensation, you must take action. Proper medical evaluation is essential to obtain the compensation you deserve.
