Did Your Job Damage Your Hearing?
People do not commonly associate hearing loss injuries with workers’ compensation claims. However, hearing loss injuries are a frequent basis for workers’ compensation claims. Ear damage may occur suddenly or develop over a period of time. Regardless of the cause, if a hearing loss injury is suffered as a result of your work, you may be entitled to make a workers’ compensation claim.
Tennessee workers’ compensation laws changed in 2014. The change was comprehensive and affected how workers pursue their claims. At our firm, we have a long history of representing clients in workers’ compensation claims. We understand how the new laws affect our clients, and we can help advise you going forward.
