Hearing Loss Claims
Any person who suffers hearing loss as a result of their employment is entitled to make a claim for loss of hearing. In order to make a claim it is necessary to establish that the hearing loss was substantially caused by the employment in that the worker was engaged in a “noisy work environment”.
The worker would be entitled to compensation commensurate with the degree of loss of hearing.
A worker who suffers hearing loss whilst at work may also be entitled to recover the cost of hearing aids and batteries for same. This is an entitlement that the worker has for the balance of their natural life.
It is typically the case that hearing loss occurs gradually over a person’s working life. If the worker is employed by a number of different “noisy employers” over their working life then it is the last of the employers for whom the worker is employed against whom the workers compensation claim is made.
A time limit applies for the lodging of a workers compensation claim for hearing loss and therefore it is to be ensured that you act without delay.
