Some of us at the Law Offices of Gallner & Pattermann, P.C., are old enough to have noticed diminished hearing, and the younger ones on our team know that their time is coming. While it is natural for hearing to lose its sharpness as we age – can you still hear the mosquito ringtones that teenagers can detect on their smartphones? – we also understand that some kinds of hearing loss are not natural or normal. In fact, noise pollution in the workplace can be the source of many Iowa residents’ hearing loss.
