The size of the problem caused by the vastly increased number of noise induced hearing loss claims continues to be important to insurers. The most recently available data from the Institute and Facility of Actuaries back in 2012 showed that there were approaching 60,000 claims that year. Now, 2 years later, while the IFoA are in the process of collecting updated information, it would not be surprising to us if insurers are now facing 100,000 or more NIHL claims annually.
