First Firefighter Case on Hearing Loss Results in Victory

Thursday, September 22, 2016

Recently we had an opportunity to have a hearing on one of twelve of the many hearing loss and tinnitus claims that we have filed before the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission. The Commission ruled in favor of the fire fighters in each of the cases. The Commission relied upon the hearing test as well as a physician whom we referred the Claimant to, in determining that the claim was related to their noise exposures at work. It resulted in an award to each fire fighter of over fifteen thousand dollars.

Although we have heard from many fire fighters regarding these problems, there are many more who have not thought to pursue a claim. It costs nothing to pursue such a matter. The only thing that is needed are copies of hearing tests which we can easily obtain. Many fire fighters simply fax us (at 301-670-9492) their hearing tests after each annual physical exam. These are provided to any firefighter who requests it, free of charge.
