Medical-Legal Evaluation of Hearing Loss

Medical-Legal Evaluation of Hearing Loss

A comprehensive guide on hearing loss and the law, this book examines claims, court cases, and the evolution of hearing conservation. It addresses age-related hearing loss, genetics of hearing loss, and noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) – with a newly revised international standard (ISO-1999, 2013) that presents a comprehensive predictive model for NIHL, critical in medical-legal evaluation. Also examined is hearing loss due to toxins, trauma, and disease, as well as the effects of cardiovascular risk factors, race, and socioeconomic status.
