Industrial Deafness & Hearing Loss Claims

Richard supervises the largest industrial hearing loss practice in New South Wales and South Australia.

Industrial noise is the most common cause of occupational hearing loss or as it is commonly known, industrial deafness.  It is irreversible. More than 1 million employees in Australia are estimated to be exposed to high levels of industrial noise at work, so high as to cause permanent hearing impairment.

Workers who suffer permanent hearing impairment and can achieve the threshold set under the Workers Compensation Act are able to claim lump sum compensation and the cost of medical treatment including hearing aids.
