Episode 14: Hearing Loss & Tinnitus
This episode of The Veterans Legal Lowdown covers VA disability claims for hearing loss & tinnitus. Hearing loss & tinnitus are two of the most commonly claimed disabilities affecting veterans. Tinnitus is a ringing, whooshing, or buzzing sound in the ears that cannot be attributed to an external source. Hearing loss is the inability to hear sounds at certain decibel levels and frequencies. VA uses a complex rating system based on hearing loss levels in each ear.
Join CCK’s Maura Clancy, Emma Peterson, and Nick Briggs for an in-depth discussion of VA claims for hearing loss & tinnitus.
