Defense Base Act Hearing Loss Claims

“I use plain English that everyone can understand, with no sugarcoating, no B.S. lawyer talk, no double talk. Just old fashioned, unsweetened truth.” Defense Base Act Hearing Loss Claim Lawyer - Bill Turley

Defense Base Act Attorney DBA Lawyer

Truth Matters 

When handling your DBA case, nothing matters more then the honest truth. Nothing. You must be straight forward and honest about your case. I have seen many instances where a client will sugar coat their injury and the courts throw out the case. Why? All because they were not honest from the get go. 

The DBA insurance company is not on your side. They have traps laying around for you to fall in. And bet on it, if you do not follow the proper steps with your DBA case, you will fall right in. 

The Next Step

Remember the DBA insurance company is not your friend. I strongly suggest you order a free copy of my book, Win Your Defense Base Act Case: The Ultimate Straight Talk Roadmap To The Medical Treatment and Money You and Your Family Deserve.

The book has plenty of great 5 Star reviews on Amazon, and it is a guide to only help you succeed in your case. 

Trust me. My only goal here is to make sure honest hard working folks like you, do not get ripped off by these companies.

Defense Base Act Hearing Loss Claims - DBA Hearing Loss Claims

Many Defense Base Act workers have hearing loss. If this is you, you are probably wondering if you have a Defense Base Act Hearing Loss Claim.  For example, if you are told that you listen to the television too loud, you have trouble hearing people talking in a crowded restaurant, you continually have to ask people to repeat things and/or you have constant ringing in your ears. These are all signs that you need to consider filing a Defense Base Act Hearing Loss claim.

One of the most common causes of hearing loss is exposure to noise. Many of our Defense Base Act clients have been exposed to loud noise. For example, bomb explosions, mortar fire, rockets, guns, truck engines, aircraft engines, etc.

Generally, DBA hearing loss claims are fairly straightforward.  I tell folks that it is an four step process for Defense Base Act Hearing Loss Claims.  First, you need to hire my law firm. We take care of filing your claim. Second, we will help arrange for you to have your hearing tested.  Third, we will either settle your case or take your case to trial (which rarely ever happens for DBA Hearing Loss Claims. Fourth, you have to figure out how you are going to spend the money.

It really is that simple. Although at times, the DBA insurance company may have you see their doctor to have your hearing loss tested.

What is noise-induced hearing loss?

Every day, you experience sound in your environment, such as the sounds from television and radio, household appliances, and traffic. Normally, you hear these sounds at safe levels that do not affect your hearing. However, when you are exposed to harmful noise—sounds that are too loud or loud sounds that last a long time—sensitive structures in our inner ear can be damaged, causing noise-induced hearing loss . These sensitive structures, called hair cells, are small sensory cells that convert sound energy into electrical signals that travel to the brain. Once damaged, your hair cells cannot grow back.

What sounds cause noise-induced hearing loss?

Noise-induced hearing loss can be caused by a one-time exposure to an intense “impulse” sound, such as an explosion, or by continuous exposure to loud sounds over an extended period of time, such as noise generated by an aircraft engine or truck engine. Distance from the source of the sound and duration of exposure to the sound are equally important.
