What benefits are available if I have a hearing loss claim under the Defense Base Act (DBA) and Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA)?

Video Transcription:

Under the Defense Base Act and Longshore Act, hearing lost claims really involved two types of benefits. One, you have compensation benefits or monetary benefits for the percentage of hearing loss you’ve sustained, and second, you have medical benefits for which you’re entitled to theoretically for the rest of your life, to include routine checkups, hearing aids, or whatever it is that your choice of audiologist or ENT may recommend.
