A worker may not even realize he or she is experiencing hearing loss due to an on-the-job injury. But at some point, the worker may notice trouble hearing what people say. Or, there may be a symptom such as ringing in the ears. In some cases, there may be treatment that can help, such as surgery. But in many cases, the hearing loss experienced may be irreversible.
Obstacles Workers Face
Workers' compensation benefits cover the costs of all reasonable and necessary treatment for work-related hearing loss. And workers are also eligible for partial lost wages while they are unable to work. But employers and insurance companies often challenge claims, and sometimes they win. They may also pressure workers into returning to the job even though they are still recovering from injury.
Employers and insurance companies have lawyers to look out for their best interests. You need a workers' compensation lawyer who will fight for what's best for you. Attorneys Jonathan Tabor and Leigh-Ann Tabor are relentless in their pursuit of the workers' compensation benefits their clients deserve. They build strong cases and won't settle for anything less than a resolution that meets your needs.
