Do You Suffer From Work-Related Hearing Loss?
Hearing loss can occur from a traumatic event, or it can happen gradually over time. Either way, if your loss of hearing is connected to your job, you may be able to receive workers’ compensation benefits for your ongoing medical needs and inability to work because of your condition. You may also receive a damage award if you have a total loss of hearing.
In Columbus, Ohio, and throughout the state, there are few attorneys more respected than those at Philip J. Fulton Law Office. Our lawyers have helped countless Ohio workers suffering from all types of serious injuries obtain the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve.
Get The Experienced Representation That You Need
Many industrial workers are constantly exposed to loud noises during the course of doing their jobs. If you worked in an environment where it was common to have to shout to hear yourself or communicate with co-workers, hearing loss could be a possibility. Events such as explosions can also cause hearing loss or reduced hearing. Be on the lookout for symptoms such as:
- Inability to hear high-pitched noises or other frequencies
- A constant hum, ring or other sound in your ear
- Others’ voices sounding muffled or quieter
