Medico-legal Audiology

Equilibrium’s audiologists offer comprehensive and objective hearing, tinnitus and vestibular assessments to support medico-legal proceedings, such as personal injury and motor vehicle accident claims. Our battery of tests can also assist in diagnosing whether an individual is experiencing hearing loss as a result of excessive exposure through workplace noise. This is known as a noise induced hearing loss (NIHL).

Over our years of practice, we have built a reputable reputation working with many medico-legal cases and providing highly professional and accurate audiological reports. We also work with expert ENTs and other specialists in the medico-legal field.

Some of the medico-legal audiological services that we offer are:

  • Hearing testing, including pure tone audiograms, immittance, oto-acoustic emissions, and speech audiometry
  • Auditory brainstem response testing
  • Tinnitus assessments, including pitch matching and masking
  • Vestibular assessments (balance/dizziness) including oculomotor testing, vHIT, VEMP testing, electrocochleography, and functional balance tests

Where required, we are able to provide hearing aid services as well as tinnitus retraining therapy and vestibular rehabilitation therapy.
