Hearing Loss Claims
There are a number of occupations, such as firefighters and factory workers that have an increased risk of hearing loss.
Despite the protections required by federal and state law, such as OSHA, workers continue to be exposed to noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) because the employers fail to furnish adequate hearing protection for the exposure. The result of the failure to provide simple and inexpensive hearing protection that is readily available is that many workers experience hearing loss.
Under the workers compensation laws of Missouri and Illinois, the protections available to workers are a complex mix of statutes and regulations that determine the compensation for hearing loss.
