This Article from Hearing Loss News and Reviews (http://www.4hearingloss.com/archives/2005/03/workers_sue_alc.html) was published in 2005. As of today, over 370 current and former Alcoa employees have made workers compensation claims for Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) through our office. Most of these workers spent almost their entire working careers at the Alcoa Tennessee Operations plant in Blount County, Tennessee. In Tennessee, workers who suffered from NIHL as a result of their employment may be entitled to disability (monetary) and medical benefits.
