Causes of Hearing Loss
In the work place, hearing damage can be caused by a number of issues,
either over a period of time or due to one particularly dangerous incident.
The cause of hearing loss at work may include:
- Prolonged exposure to dangerous noise levels
- Trauma caused by a loud noise or explosion
- Hearing damage caused by a head injury
Hearing loss can manifest in a variety of ways, either permanent or temporary,
partial or full. Hearing loss typically occurs because there is some type
of damage sustained to the ear drum, which can be determined by a hearing
test administered by a medical professional. Besides hearing loss, workers
may also suffer tinnitus, or a ringing in the ears which can sometimes
be painful and/or constant. If you believe you may have suffered hearing
loss, see a medical professional immediately and contact your
workers’ compensation attorney.
