After 9 months of Fighting with the Washington State Industrial Compensation Board about my Major Loss of Hearing, I finally won my case! On Monday I will be going to my Hearing Specialist and I will be walking out with a set of High Tech Hearing Aids. The State is paying for them, the batteries and all of the accessories! They will also be replacing the hearings aid batteries and hearing aids for the Rest of my Life!
It will be so wonderful to be able to hear the birds singing again, Tree Frogs croaking and also to hear and understand what people are saying without having to struggle to read lips! Life is going to be Great!
For all of you out there that work in a High Noise Environment Like I did, Get your hearing tested Every year (it's Free) Keep good records, and when you retire make sure that you again get your hearing tested. If you have a Hearing Loss IMMEDIATELY FILE for a Hearing Loss Claim with your State Industrial Compensation Board!
I didn't know that when I retired so I just struggled along with my hearing loss and I screwed myself out of a Major amount of Money! Had I filed a claim within 2 years I would have been allowed a Hearing Loss Compensation of $25,000, plus Free Hearing Aids for LIFE! Plus, I caused myself a lot of stress by struggling to hear and then the Fight to get a Hearing Loss Claim!
Please let all of your friends and Family Know this information!
