Hearing Loss from Railroad Work

The high level of noise associated with working on board and in the vicinity of locomotives often leads to hearing loss. This type of hearing loss is call sensorineural hearing loss. The major railroads have recognized the danger of noise induced hearing loss since at least 1966. Railroads failed to make a legitimate effort to provide hearing protection until the last decade or so. Some railroad workers still lose their ability to hear as a result of working at the railroad. However, the claims are difficult to prosecute given semi-annual hearing tests and attempts to provide ear plugs. If you have a recent audiogram contact us and we will evaluate the potential value of your hearing loss claim.
