Are you losing your hearing because of your job?

If you have noticed that you cannot hear as well as you used to, your job could be the cause. The Hearing Health Foundation reports that the Centers for Disease Control attributes 24% of U.S. hearing loss to workplace exposure to excessive noise levels. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics adds that more than 20,000 on-the-job hearing loss incidents occur each year, many of which result in the worker suffering permanent hearing loss.

Can you receive workers' compensation for respiratory diseases?

As a construction worker, you may handle dangerous or toxic materials while on the job. Through no fault of your own, you may inhale or ingest their residue. Exposure to these hazardous substances can cause a variety of respiratory diseases. These conditions put your livelihood - and life - at risk. If you've developed a respiratory disease from your work, you may qualify for workers' compensation benefits.
