Since the advent of tighter controls on noise-levels at work, the number of workers who suffer hearing loss as a result of excessive noise is decreasing year on year. However, as with many industrial diseases, the damage caused by noise can happen gradually and build up over time. If you work in a noisy environment and are having problems with your hearing, it may be worth considering whether this has been caused by your occupation.
If you have suffered hearing loss due to the type of work that you do, then you could be entitled to compensation.
We can help. With over three decades of experience working exclusively for claimants, we will ensure that you get the compensation you deserve, quickly and efficiently, and with the minimum inconvenience to you.
We are expert noise-induced deafness lawyers who represent those who have suffered hearing loss caused by their work environment, whether you are employed, on a temporary contract, a zero hours worker, or even designated as ‘self-employed’. Whatever type of worker you are if your employer has failed to keep the workplace, and you, safe from high levels of noise, and you have suffered injury as a result, then you could be entitled to make a claim.
Noise-induced injury can take many forms, such as hearing loss, tinnitus, pain, difficulty in tolerating everyday sounds, and dizziness and vertigo. These injuries can have both a physical and mental impact on you and your life.
The compensation that you are entitled to is not measured solely by the extent of your injury, but the effect it has on how you live your life. It is there to secure the support you need for yourself and your family. Your claim can cover costs such as loss of earnings and pension, cost of treatment, medication and prescription charges, travel expenses, household help and care and increased bills.
We will assess your case quickly, understanding both the evidence your employer’s insurance company will need to agree to pay your claim and the different ways which your injuries may be affecting you. So you know where you stand from the outset.
Our ‘no win no fee’ pledge means that we guarantee you against costs should your claim be unsuccessful.
From your first contact, getting you the best outcome is our focus, and we work hard to make sure we do.
