How to Claim Compensation for Hearing Loss
The first step is to provide us with details about your hearing loss, deafness or Tinnitus symptoms;
and how you believe your hearing problems were caused. For example, if you suffered from excessive noise at work for long periods of time.
When we have the details, a Personal Injury Solicitor that specialises in hearing loss compensation will evaluate your claim on a No Win No Fee basis; and we can tell you how successful your claim is expected to be.
Industrial Deafness Compensation
Industrial deafness and work related hearing loss usually occurs gradually and because the symptoms can take some time to develop, many people who worked in noisy factories didn’t realise that their hearing loss was the result of a noisy workplace. A lot of people now work in call centres where the headphones are often too loud and this can cause a variety of hearing problems.
We deal with hearing loss compensation claims for Tinnitus, which is a buzzing or ringing sound in the ears that is often caused by excessive noise levels. In some cases, Tinnitus can be intermittent, but for some, Tinnitus disrupts daily life, makes sleeping difficult, and can lead to anxiety and depression.
Hearing loss and industrial deafness can also be caused or intensified by carbon monoxide exposure as well as loud noise in the workplace. Employers have a duty to protect workers from all types of accidents at work, including risks of injury to your hearing.
Our Personal Injury Solicitors specialise in work related hearing loss and industrial deafness compensation claims. In most cases claiming compensation for hearing loss in industry is covered by the Employers’ Liability Insurance; which all businesses are required to have by law.
You are entitled to compensation if you can prove that your hearing loss or industrial deafness was partly or completely caused by someone else’s fault; such as your employer.
Your employer is not allowed to treat you unfairly or to dismiss you for claiming compensation. In most cases the compensation is paid by the employers’ insurance company, and not the employer.
