Dangerous Working Conditions Resulting in Hearing Loss
For many years, workers in Louisiana factories, refineries, shipyards and other industrial areas exposed themselves to dangerously load noises. Due to this exposure, over time a person's sense of hearing can become diminished. Companies that knew about the risks associated with a loud working environment and did not help shield their employees from potential hearing loss should be held responsible for their injured workers.

Occupational Hearing Loss (also known as Occupational Induced Noise Hearing Loss or Workplace Hearing Loss) is the loss of hearing due to constant exposure to high levels of noise in the workplace. Workplace hearing loss is preventable, however once it occurs it is irreversible. Many may confuse this type of hearing loss with the natural aging process.
Occupational Induced Hearing Loss is a concern to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The increasing knowledge of this preventable hearing injury has lead to a federal mandate of standards for plants and industrial facilities located in the United States to prevent, reduce, warn, and monitor noise exposure of its workers. By pursuing compensation, you can get the treatment you need, while getting the closure, accountability and justice you deserve.
