If you work in an industry where noise levels might be higher than normal and you’ve experienced degradation in your hearing, you may be eligible for financial compensation for hearing loss. Industrial deafness can affect workers across a vast range of industries. Complaw can help you apply for a sizeable payment according to the hearing loss compensation table if the severity has been determined by an independent medical as being total hearing loss.
We act on behalf of the claimant and ensure that his/her hearing loss claim has the best possible outcome. The main purpose of the claim is the monetary compensation, the lump sum award which, if awarded, will comply with the hearing loss compensation table. The secondary purpose is the medical and like expenses aspect of the claim, that in this case is a good pair of hearing aids at no cost to the claimant. If monetary compensation is not possible, then we explore the possibility of the free acquisition of hearing aids only.
Compensation for hearing loss claims can be tricky, as the WorkSafe/Comcare agents tend to reject them quite often without sound reasons. That is where we come in with our years of experience in the field. We know how to contest, when to contest and if we should contest any decisions we believe are not rightful to our client. We support our clients as best we can, many times sponsoring their expenses if we believe they have a good case.
No, with our No Win, No Fee policy^, we don’t charge an upfront fee for claims. A fee will only be charged if your claim for compensation is successful.
The amount of compensation for hearing loss you may be eligible for depends on a range of factors, including the level of hearing loss and the deemed date of injury. View the hearing loss compensation table to learn more.
Your eligibility will be determined by taking into account a number of different factors, including how much time has passed since the hearing loss was incurred as well as your specific level of hearing loss. Complaw can advise you on your eligibility before you make a claim.
Even if you’re not eligible for compensation, you may be eligible for subsidised hearing aids through the government hearing aid subsidy. To determine if you can obtain free hearing aids, speak to Complaw today.
