Industrial Deafness Claim
For your future…
Deafness due to loud, industrial workplaces is known as Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NHIL) and occurs when an individual has been exposed to excess and high-levels of noise throughout their working life. Indication of NHIL includes the inability to clearly engage in conversation.
As well as causing permanent deafness, noise exposure in the workplace can also cause other permanent problems including high-pitch ringing in the ears, known as tinnitus. If this applies to you, then you may have a case.
We have a dedicated team who are leading experts in handling industrial deafness cases and can help you secure compensation. While typically these claims are worth between £3,000 and £10,000, the compensation will depend on the severity of your symptoms. We are also able to help with smaller claims including covering the cost of private hearing aids.
Due to the nature of deafness being degenerative, it is important to pursue compensation as soon as possible as the law states court action should be pursued within three years.
Our team are on hand to ensure the best possible results for you, and help gain the compensation you deserve – even if your former workplace is no longer in business.
