Hearing Loss

Have you ever been exposed to noise at work?

Have you ever been exposed to noise at work? You may be entitled to payment of your medical expenses, a supplement to your income, or even a lump sum settlement<br /> .

Helping injured workers make claims for compensation is the biggest area of our practice. We have the experience and expertise that can assist you in any type of injury that you might have suffered.

We don’t shy away from difficult claims. Even if the people you worked for are no longer in business, or if you worked for yourself, or if you have not worked for years, you may still have a claim.

We understand that most people don’t want to fight for their rights and get a large legal bill at the end that makes them question whether it was worth it. That’s why we aim to get you the most out of your entitlements while keeping our services affordable.

We handle claims against South Australian employers and national employers. This includes claims made by military personnel.

We operate on a No Win, No Fee basis, so if you don’t receive a lump sum payment, you won’t be out of pocket.

I have workplace hearing loss, am I entitled to compensation?

Yes – if you have ever been exposed to noise at work recently or in the past, you may have a claim for hearing loss compensation.

We deal constantly in claims for noise-induced hearing loss so you can be comfortable in having us handle your claim. You may be entitled to medical expenses, such as payment for hearing aids, as well as a potential lump sum payment.

If you have retired, or are about to retire, then now is going to be the best time for you to make a claim for hearing loss. Making a claim while you are still working or within 2 years of retirement puts you in the best position to pursue your claim and be successful.

Some questions we’ll ask:

  • Are you still working, or have you retired? If so, we’ll need to know the year of your retirement.
  • Do you have tinnitus?
  • Have you ever had a hearing loss claim in the past? If yes, when was the claim, and did you receive a lump sum settlement?
  • Who is the most recent noisy South Australian employer that you’ve worked for?
  • Have you ever had a hearing test? If so, do you have the result?
