I traveled for a company in Compton Ca with a sister plant in Lenxa Ks for 22-years . The enviorment that I had to work in was terrible as far as noise . For years the companies that purchased our equipment made no mention of hearing protection . Then about 10 years ago they have most all adapted strict rules for wearing protection for ears to protect hearing . For several of us it was too late . I have loss 50 percent of my hearing . My question is do I have a case ?

A friend of mine worked for the US Postal Service about 15 or 20 years ago and has suffered progressive loss of hearing since the time she was employed with the US Postal Service. According to her, she has visited with several hearing specialist and they all agree that at some point she will eventually lose all hearing functions. Does she have any recourse in term of a law suite.

I was employed with the Department of Defense for 4 years. The Master Air Base. I have lost 20% percent of my hearing, not related to age or an accident. I live on the outskirts of the Master Air base and the decibel level over my house is excruciating. Do I have a workman’s comp claim? Regards Jeanne Phin

Dear Sir/Madam,

A few weeks ago I realized that my hearing with the right ear was lower than with the left ear. I had to complete hearing exams and it is clear that the nerves of the right ear are damaged.

I have been using earphones for several years -not very loud- from Apple and Bose, but I didn’t know at all that to hear through earphones is NOT good at all. The specialist explain to me that the ear has that special form since we humans are designed to received the sounds from distance, but NEVER from inside the ear. The problem in that case is that the sounds hit directly the ear drum. and it should be like that.

I would like to ask you if it is possible to suit Apple and Bose for a hearing loss case? It is something very similar to smoking: before the companies did not warn you, and something similar happens now with the earphones: they just warned about not putting to loud, but don’t say at all that listen through earphones is bad.

I would appreciate your reply. I have been told that I cannot recover the part of the hearing lost since the nerve seems to be damaged. Now I stopped completely of using earphones and bought a earmuff to use in noisy environments, but I feel cheated by the companies not warning that their products will cause ear damages sooner or later.

Yours

Paul Rodas

I worked at Texas Instruments in Austin Tx for 20 years.. During that time I spent several years running a giant flat bed photo plotter in a confined space dark room. When it traveled it made a high pitched noise that I believe damaged my hearing. Would this be the type of hearing loss you are talking about?

I worked for 24 years in a Steel Mill that was proactive about the use of hearing protection and they even gave yearly tests but the test was done in house not by a real audiologist. But, those tests even showed a progressive loss of hearing in my left ear. Then years later they brought in a real audiologists and they said my hearing was borderline for making a claim. My hearing loss was due to the Motorola radios we used to communicate with in loud areas I would have to turn the volume of the radio to its highest level in order to hear it consequently my left ear hearing is real bad and I hear ringing all the time. I am now retired 2 yrs and I am very interested in recovering for my loss of hearing. I live and worked in Texas and the Steel Mill is very profitable.

I worked in a heavy industrial Chrysler transmission manufacturing plant from 1968 to 2005. The first year I was there I developed ringing in my ears and could not understand people talking in groups. Mandatory hearing protection was not fully instituted there until the late 1970’s. In 2016 I went totally deaf in my right ear. After multiple brain and ear MRIs it was determined the loss was not due to a tumor or tumors. From 2005 to 2017 I ran a sole proprietor home inspection business, but had to stop due to my hearing loss. I have crossover hearing aids, but they don’t help. This loss is causing emotional stress between my wife and I. If I lose what little hearing I have in my left ear I may be candidate for a cochlea implant. Is it possible to go back on Chrysler for my hearing loss?

As a truck driver over 40 years of engine noise, I have significant hearing loss. Neither company insurance or Medicare and supplement plan will cover hearing aids. No way to afford them is there any help out there?
