Industrial deafness is a serious injury that can have a big impact on a person’s life. If you have developed hearing troubles or deafness as a result of work, or you had a pre-existing condition that was made worse by work – it’s possible you may be able to make a WorkCover workers compensation claim.

Common questions about Industrial Deafness Compensation Claims
In order to establish if you have a claim a lawyer will have to go over the facts of your case and get a hold of your situation. No two claims are the same and in order for your industrial deafness claim to be successful, lawyers will need to prove that as a result of your employment you have suffered the condition.
The industrial deafness legal process can be quite complicated depending on your case. The below image is a good representation of how someone can move through the legal process with Shine Lawyers and get the compensation they need to move forward.
If the injury was not your fault, our legal team may be able to claim for:
- Medical and hospital expenses
- Loss of wages
- Travelling expenses
- Rehabilitation expenses
- Medical devices or equipment
- Return to work services
In most cases a monetary value is placed on the gap between your life path before injury and your life path since the injury.
Generally speaking, industrial deafness compensation claims can take around 18 months to resolve but this can vary greatly depending on your circumstances.
The legal costs themselves depend on the work our lawyers undertake on your case, which varies depending on how complex your case is.
Most people making industrial deafness compensation legal claims choose not to act for themselves and instead engage an expert compensation lawyer. The best compensation lawyers can provide the knowledge and experience required to help guide a case to a successful outcome.
