Industrial deafness compensation in Queensland

Claiming compensation for industrial deafness

Hearing loss is a genuine condition that affects many workers in construction, manufacturing and industrial environments, particularly those working with or near heavy machinery. Noise in workshops, warehouses, heavy vehicles and worksites can cause permanent hearing damage; once you have hearing loss there is no cure.

Understanding your rights is the first step to accessing compensation.

If you are suffering from permanent hearing damage as a result of your employment conditions, Maurice Blackburn can help you understand if you have a claim. Our lawyers will guide you through the legal process, draft the necessary paperwork and provide advice along the way. Your claim will take around 12 weeks from lodging your application.

  • preparing the claim documents and collecting all necessary information required to ensure prompt acceptance of your claim
  • preparing submissions on your behalf to the Workers' Compensation Regulator for acceptance of your claim, if your claim is rejected by the insurer
  • providing advice for reassessment of your hearing loss to determine the best way to maximise any compensation you may be entitled to
